“As an outside general counsel, my goal is to be a trusted team member and advisor to my client,” says Colleen Pleasant Kline. “This permits me to take a holistic approach to the issues at hand by understanding my client and their business better. I encourage my clients to consider both long-term and short-term goals in problem solving, and if I know these goals, I can tailor my advice to highlight the impact that certain decisions may have [on them].”
QUICK TIP: “It is not what you do that people remember, but how you make them feel.” – Maya Angelou
“My company had an urgent issue with a long-term government client that was very costly and potentially threatening to my company. I explained the issue to Colleen and she was able to not only provide a much-needed listening ear, but was very instrumental in identifying resources to assist with the mitigation of the issue. Her immediate attention, the ability to understand the complexity of my legal matter and the rapidity with which she responded was paramount in reversing a decision that could have been detrimental to my company. She is a delight to work with and my go-to person for legal guidance. Colleen’s knowledge and her ability to mitigate legal issues and provide preventive strategies … have been very impactful for my business.” – Sonja Hines, President and CEO, H&S Resources Corp.
