Attorney Lisa Scott founded the woman-owned, legal services company Intuitive Edge. She saw a way to disrupt the industry by offering what she calls Dream Teams.
When Attorney Lisa Scott looked at the world of legal services she saw an industry ripe for disruption. Legal services were almost uniformly provided by attorneys, sometimes with the help of paralegals, at hourly rates that rewarded the extraordinary analytic and advocacy skills of those professionals. Yet, companies large and small were paying those hourly fees even for the labor intensive process of organizing of complex legal projects, such as contract management during mergers and acquisitions. The organizing of such projects, she reasoned, might well be better and more economically handled by project managers, not attorneys or other legal professionals. Why not deploy project managers into any one of a myriad of business/legal undertakings as partners in the process?
That's when Lisa Scott came up with the idea of Dream Teams composed of project managers, attorneys and paralegals to tackle even the most complex legal scenarios. Scott is a woman who has always questioned whether systems were based more on tradition than on performance. It's the lens through which she views the entire legal profession and each of the projects that Intuitive Edge now undertakes for businesses, including Fortune 500 corporations.
As Scott put it, "I saw the invoices being generated by big law firms who deployed the same professionals into every situation to accomplish every , task and thought to myself, 'Why would a lawyer be the person setting up the systems to review hundreds of documents or organizing meetings or making sure that the politics between an acquiring company and a divesting company were as smooth as possible? Those skills are often most well-honed in project managers--and at a fraction of the cost." With that disruptive idea at the core of Intuitive Edge, LLC, the company has now successfully managed tens of thousands of contracts for clients in a wide variety of industries. More information about Intuitive Edge, LLC is available at https://www.in2edge.com
Lisa Scott invented the OASIS Cycle as the system her Dream Teams use to deliver extraordinary value. The OASIS Cycle involves five steps: organization & optimization, analysis of gaps, standardization and streamlining of processes, institutionalization of standards, and synergizing of functions. Together, these processes have allowed the company to manage even the biggest and most complex clients. And they achieve this while reducing legal spend by a third, while doubling efficiency.
The fact that Intuitive Edge, LLC is a woman-owned company isn't lost on the woman at the helm. "Neither gender has a monopoly on creativity or commitment--or intuitive views of ways to make an industry function better," she said. "But I do love the fact that Intuitive Edge is a woman-owned company. I think Intuitive Edge can serve as an example to females who also decide to strike out on bold, new paths. For me, I feel so fortunate to have done so in a complex profession like the law and in service to some of the boldest companies in the world."

Intuitive Edge, LLC is using its Oasis Cycle, fueled by Artificial Intelligence (AI), bringing superior quality, lower cost legal contract management services to businesses.
Intuitive Edge, LLC, the legal services company founded by Attorney Lisa Scott, specializing in contract management for entities acquiring or divesting themselves of significant business units, is leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) in service to its clients. Intuitive Edge deploys Dream Teams of project managers and attorneys, working in synergy, to clients whose complex transactions may involve organizing and transferring hundreds or thousands of contracts. The company achieves spectacular results utilizing its Oasis Cycle to organize the myriad of contracts and accomplish the needed legal edits and soft-touch political-business communications that help complex deals close. They've already worked their magic for organizations including Fortune 500 companies.
Part of the Oasis Cycle, as described at www.in2edge.com, relies on artificial intelligence to categorize contracts, vet them for potentially problematic language and indicate where change is needed. "We realize that our unique and effective teams are a huge part of the reason for our success," Attorney Lisa Scott said. "But we also realize that they deserve to have the most up-to-date, cutting edge tools at their disposal. These tools don't replace human intellect and analysis at all. They augment it. We never rely on artificial intelligence alone to get the job done; we deploy artificial intelligence as one of the resources our Dream Teams have to get the job done expertly, in a timely fashion, at a lower cost than other providers. The bottom line is that creativity has finally come to the legal services industry--brought by the tremendously talented people I am so lucky to have on my teams. And they are not at all resistant to deploying up-to-the-minute data-driven, technology solutions for our clients."
Artificial intelligence is the use of data and algorithms to direct levels of inquiry and analysis previously impossible without spending untold thousands of hours gathering that data and applying it. "Human reason will never go out of style," Attorney Scott said. "There's no replacement for the wise counsel the attorneys at Intuitive Edge provide. And there's no replacement for the superior organizational prowess of the project managers who work on our Dream Teams with them. But there's nothing about the law, about contracts or about mergers and acquisitions and divestitures that make them benefit less from properly-applied artificial intelligence. No legal services company can consider itself to be up-to-speed without speeding up the processes it can using AI. We don't fear technology. We take the best of it and put it to work for our clients."

Intuitive Edge, LLC is a revolutionary legal services company with astounding creativity and resourcefulness. The company deploys lawyers teamed with project managers (Dream Teams) into complex contract management projects, potentially involving thousands of contracts being transferred from seller to buyer. Visit https://www.in2edge.com/
Intuitive Edge, LLC, a cutting edge legal services company founded by Attorney Lisa Scott, is breaking new ground in more than one way. Not only is Intuitive Edge (website here) a woman-owned business, but the company has disrupted the contracts management world by pairing project managers with attorneys to create Dream Teams that deliver lower-cost, extremely high quality services to businesses engaged in any M & A process. And Attorney Scott hasn't stopped there. Intuitive Edge works with clients large and small to offer prices based on project size, not a number of hours, when desired.
"The idea of Intuitive Edge is really very simple," Attorney Scott said. "Legal services have traditionally been designed with law firms in mind, not clients. And while it may be in a law firm's interest to use only high-priced legal talent for every facet of a project, the truth is that project managers are often better at that role and can be deployed at far lower cost. Moreover, while it might be in the law firm's interest to have no ceiling to the number of hours that can be billed on a complex project of significant scale, that asks the client to assume all risk for cost overruns and inefficiencies. I am more than happy to partner with the many clients of Intuitive Edge to contain their legal costs because I know economies of scale that come from disrupting stale, staid models ripe for change."
Intuitive Edge has already won business from Fortune 500 companies and has been retained not only by companies divesting themselves of business units, but acquiring entities, as well.
"The agenda and architecture of the work we do can be customized," Attorney Scott said, "because we are willing to customize, to pivot, to use multidisciplinary teams, to leverage artificial intelligence and to remain committed to and in communication with our clients between projects, not just during projects. We are counsel that truly collaborates to achieve outstanding results at the lowest price possible.

Clients get peace of mind from knowing that a large part of their administration is being handled by a specialist team.
The OASIS Cycle reduces complexities in addressing contract management and gives clients peace of mind as a significant portion of administrative tasks are handled by an expert team. Clients also enjoy improved negotiating positions and gain greater insight into their own organizations through detailed tracking and analytics.

A Frisco, TX legal services company has introduced specialized legal services to Dallas-Fort Worth area corporations looking for a way to reduce their legal spending while actually improving the quality of the legal services they receive.
Intuitive Edge, an alternative legal services provider (ALSP), and certified woman owned (WBE), has introduced a series of cost-effective attorney services for corporations and business owners across the Dallas area and beyond.
More information is available at https://www.in2edge.com
The new suite of legal services offered by Intuitive Edge will allow more Dallas area businesses to gain access to the company's proprietary business model called the OASIS Cycle, which can cut legal costs by a third and double aspects of business efficiency. OASIS allows businesses to respond with a legal Dream Team to legal challenges in today's highly litigious environment laden with contracts, notices, and amendments.
Key to the OASIS Cycle is the pairing of an expert project manager with a lawyer. This Dream Team then assesses the legal challenges at hand and comes up with a strategy that unfolds methodically and strategically--and at lower cost--because of their complementary and synergistic skills. This Dream Team/OASIS Cycle approach has been a key to Intuitive Edge providing invaluable legal and administrative guidance during small and large projects in everything from startups to large, multinational corporations undertaking massive transactions.
A particular focus of Intuitive Edge and the OASIS cycle is contracts management--helping clients review and standardize their contract portfolios, in order to lower risks, identify cost-saving opportunities, and improve accessibility to documents. Once benchmark standards are reached, clients can then retain the company on an ongoing basis to fully manage their contracts. Intuitive Edge also offers interim attorney placements within companies, whether large or small, to provide needed legal guidance in contract management, negotiations, patent and trademark transactions, and more.
The pairing of a project manager with a lawyer--the Intuitive Edge Dream Team--is the brainchild of Founder Lisa Scott. Scott commented, "It makes no more sense to have every aspect of every legal effort important to a company organized and run by attorneys than it does to have every aspect of every health care program run by physicians. Different professionals bring different skills. And Intuitive Edge brings those professional teams to businesses in Frisco and elsewhere, thereby empowering them to succeed. Deploying these Dreams Teams has been my dream for a long time. Seeing it happen, in a way that delivers for small and large companies, is an amazing journey."

Intuitive Edge, the specialized legal services company deploying the OASIS Cycle™ for contracts management during corporate M&A activity, transforms the legal services industry. Intuitive Edge pairs a project manager with a lead attorney (their Dream Team), expertly managing the transfer of thousands of third-party contracts.
Intuitive Edge, the specialized legal services company that deploys its unique OASIS Cycle™ for contracts management during corporate mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, is disrupting the legal services industry. Intuitive Edge pairs a project manager with a lead attorney to create the heart of a team that can efficiently and expertly manage the transfer of thousands of third-party contracts when a corporation divests itself of a business unit or during many other high-level transactions. The Dream Team of a project manager and lawyer (and supporting personnel) deploying the OASIS Cycle™ means that contracts management now enjoys levels of focus, organization and economies of scale never before possible. Learn more at the Intuitive Edge Website.
Intuitive Edge was founded by Lisa Scott, an attorney who recognized that putting contracts management during M&A activity in the hands of "lawyers-only" meant that high pricing was built into the system and that the special organizational skills of a project manager were missing. Her solution: Let lawyers do what lawyers do best (craft documents) and let project managers working with them do what they do best (organize and implement projects).
The Dream Team and OASIS Cycle™ mean that Intuitive Edge can also focus on a "soft-touch" approach that builds synergy, trust and good will between the divesting entity, the acquiring entity and all third parties. Intuitive Edge is already the not-so-secret ingredient in corporate divestitures involving Fortune 100 companies. Yet the flexibility of staffing and expertise, combined with the work flow technologies deployed, means that Intuitive Edge can serve companies of any size. No transaction involves too many contracts or is too complex.
Because Intuitive Edge has taken contracts management to the level of a true specialty service, making the best use of the diverse skills of diverse professionals (not just attorneys), the company truly represents a creative and disruptive force in the world of legal services.

Press release published December 8, 2020
Frisco, Texas-based Intuitive Edge LLC has announced the launch of its new legal guide to help businesses responsible for managing high volumes of contracts reduce their legal spending.
Frisco, Texas-based Intuitive Edge, LLC has announced the launch of its new legal guide. The 10-page document offers cost-effective solutions to businesses managing large numbers of contracts during the sale of a business, the acquisition of a business or a merger.
More information is available at https://www.in2edge.com
The guide is entitled, “How to Use a Laser-Focused Team to Significantly Reduce Legal Spend,” and is available now. It describes the OASIS Cycle™, a more effective and less expensive system to manage complex contracts projects. The OASIS Cycle™ incorporates 5 key elements: Organization, Analysis, Standardization, Institutionalization, and Synergy. Each of the elements leverages new ways of deploying technology and teamwork. A key feature is the use of a dedicated Project Manager to oversee and drive the entire process, including the judicious use of a lawyer's time.
The Intuitive Edge guide compliments the company's legal services and shares insights into how to adopt repeatable, streamlined, cost-saving legal processes and procedures, especially in the realm of high volumes of contracts. The Intuitive Edge guide offers illustrative scenarios so that prospective clients can "see" the OASIS Cycle™ in action. One scenario centers around an organization that must identify the necessary steps to securely catalogue 1,000 procurement contracts. The Cycle streamlines needed and novel technologies, including a virtual data room, an AI review tool, a cloud-based tool for project and contracts management, and a user-friendly web-based tool for meetings.
“How to Use a Laser-Focused Team to Significantly Reduce Legal Spend” also presents valuable steps to analyze and standardize the contracts management process--no matter how many contracts are involved. Via the templates Intuitive Edge has created and the way they are used in the OASIS Cycle™, Intuitive Edge seeds the entire firm with processes that are repeatable. Over the long run, firms find they are more likely to see cooperation between departments, have faster turnarounds, proactively resolve issues, identify cost avoidance opportunities earlier, and adapt to customized needs more quickly.
The just-launched guide also lists potential business benefits for working within the OASIS Cycle™ system and with Intuitive Edge as a services provider, including being able to handle multiple transactions simultaneously, dealing with licensing and intellectual property issues, as well as handling legacy mergers and changing legal entities.
More information on this new guide, including contact details for Intuitive Edge, can be found at the link above.
Contract management during M&A or divestitures can slow deals down & cost far more than it should. Intuitive Edge combines high-tech and high-touch elements, disrupting the legal services market.
INTUITIVE EDGE (website) is fast becoming the go-to, not-so-secret weapon of corporations embarking upon a merger, acquisition or divestiture. This is because Intuitive Edge deploys a dream team led by an attorney and a project manager to take charge of managing the hundreds or thousands of contracts that have to be conveyed, seamlessly, from one entity to the another. Intuitive Edge achieves this with its OASIS Cycle™ of contract management which centralizes all contracts in a virtual data room, then methodically organizes their flow from the divesting entity to the acquiring entity.
Intuitive Edge's OASIS Cycle™ includes work flow that ensures that legal or administrative or interdepartmental hurdles that might otherwise stand in the way of a seamless transfer of contracts are cleared. Contracts are not "lost in translation" as a deal--regardless of complexity or size--unfolds. Contract management during mergers, acquisitions or divestitures is notorious for slowing deals down and for eroding trust between the companies involved. That's why Intuitive Edge combines high-tech and high-touch elements in its OASIS Cycle™, so that the contract management process actually builds rapport and respect between companies. Intuitive Edge also disrupts the legal services market with its teams of lawyers and non-lawyer project managers. Intuitive Edge can, therefore, deliver cost savings, even while improving quality--a win/win that likely explains why its list of clients include Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies.
Intuitive Edge was founded by Attorney Lisa Scott who understood that the culture of law firms is often ill-suited to the patterns and pace necessary to manage complex transfers of hundreds or thousands of contracts. Going "outside the box" of the law firm walls has allowed her to make Intuitive Edge and the OASIS Cycle™ a (now) not-so-secret weapon to get deals done--and done quickly, less expensively and with less potential friction between entities involved in the process. As Attorney Scott said, "When you can charge less than the competition, deliver more than the competition and get it done faster, you've got a wonderful runway to take off as a company. We're all tremendously appreciative of having the opportunity to build what is essentially a new industry at the interface of legal services and project management. The focus of that industry--unique to Intuitive Edge--is complex contract management. But Intuitive Edge does offer other legal/project management services, as well." Intuitive Edge Website
Press release published September 22, 2020
A service has been launched to help corporations manage complex contracts projects and reduce their legal costs while increasing their business efficiency. Intuitive Edge says its dream team and OASIS Cycle™ method overcomes complex contract challenges.
Companies involved in mergers and acquisitions can benefit from a newly launched legal services company. Intuitive Edge aims to reduce legal costs by implementing a dream team, co-led by an Attorney Lead and Project Manager, to handle strategy and execution of large-scale contracts projects.
Find out more at https://www.in2edge.com
The newly launched service is reflective of the fact many legal projects involve a myriad of contracts that can easily cause legal fees to mount. Intuitive Edge aims to simplify the process to help businesses deliver better results while also saving money.
Intuitive Edge says customers have already benefited from its tailored service and the implementation of its dream team. For instance, a multi-billion-dollar technology company intended to sell one of its technologies, but there were hundreds of vendors that were an integral part of completing the purchase of the technology. To transition all relevant vendors to the buyer, the customer was required to separate, assign, or complete certain contractual steps. This would be a daunting task for any procurement team or project manager as it requires time and resources.
In addition, the customer had previously utilized a large well-known consulting firm for a similar transaction, yet some vendor relationships were jeopardized due to a lack of communication and relationship management. To address this issue, Intuitive Edge realized the best approach was to formulate a dream team co-led by an Attorney Lead and Project Manager.
Intuitive Edge utilizes its proprietary OASIS Cycle™ model to implement its projects. Part of the OASIS Cycle™ addresses the effective collection of documents and organizing them in a virtual data room so analysis of the contracts may begin. A comprehensive Playbook will also be developed in collaboration with the customer while several other pieces of the OASIS Cycle™ are also implemented.
Ultimately, the OASIS Cycle™ increases proactivity and reduces the risk of issues arising. It also ensures enhanced relationship management with both internal customer counterparts and customers' 3rd parties. Solutions may be tailored to enable issues and gaps to be addressed quickly. Project transparency and accountability are also an important part of the method.
A customer said: “Intuitive Edge made our business transition so easy and efficient. They had all the answers to our legal questions and business contracts. They are professional and were quick to respond throughout the process. You cannot put a price on that kind of peace of mind.”
