I used to be a super stressed M&A lawyer. I used to work in São Paulo coordinating the Iberian investment in Brazil. With the time difference, I remember waking up every morning with more than 100 emails to read. Some of them weren’t really even addressed to me but I was in the loop and I had to read them anyways or I could lose the comments to the contracts. I used to draft documents with Microsoft Word doing copy-paste and with a lot of interruptions. I used to spend more than 2 hours a day just cleaning my inbox. I was always emailing new versions back and forth and saving countless versions of the documents. Follow-up changes were a nightmare. The whole contract management process was chaos. It just wasn’t productive!
