Redesigned and simplified an overwhelmingly complex acquisition and outsourcing deal in which AT&T acquired IBM’s Global Network. At the time, this was the largest communications outsourcing ever attempted. Built a novel capability (practices and tools) to economically manage the complexity and risks associated with the interactions of a global, part-time team of more than 200 lawyers managing the design and culmination of the deal. In the end, they transferred ownership and management of 30,000 customers, 5,000 employees, and $1 billion in sales, in 87 countries. Deal was completed in 10 months – 2 months ahead of an already unprecedented schedule of one year. The early completion alone was worth more than $200 million to our client.
