Deal Lawyers Download Podcast: Managing PE & VC Legal Spend

Our latest Deal Lawyers Download podcast features my interview with Apperio founder & CEO Nicholas d’Adhemar about his company’s recent survey of in-house counsel at PE and VC firms on issues in managing their legal spend. Topics addressed in this 23-minute podcast include:

– Key takeaways from the survey

– How organizational structure influences an investment firm’s ability to control legal spending

– Techniques firms are using to hold down legal costs

– Advice for law firms on approaches to fees and billing practices

If you have something you’d like to talk about, please feel free to reach out to me via email at I’m wide open when it comes to topics – an interesting new judicial decision, other legal or market developments, best practices, war stories, tips on handling deal issues, interesting side gigs, or anything else you think might be of interest to the members of our community are all fair game.
