“Through my experiences as outsourced general counsel and my work to facilitate roundtable groups for emerging companies, I have become empathetic to the business and legal needs of C-level executives at small and mid-sized businesses,” says Jonathan Wachs. “I have taught others at Offit Kurman … to view client interactions as building a relationship instead of completing a set of tasks.” Wachs facilitates two affinity groups for regional business leaders — one for food and beverage companies and one for people following the medical cannabis industry in Maryland.
QUICK TIP: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” – Wachs’ former boss, Merv Heller
“Jonathan has been a tremendous guide for us in multiple areas of Unleashed Technologies, including intellectual property, branding, contracts and general counsel. A story that sticks out in my mind is his ability to help bring us into an enterprise market by providing in-depth consultation on industry standards for contracts and working with us hand in glove to help procure one of the largest deals in the company’s history, making sure that all parties were satisfied with the terms of that agreement. Ultimately, that started our relationship off on the right foot, and the client relationship
has been blossoming ever since.” – Michael Spinosa, CEO, Unleashed Technologies
