Operationalizing Contract Review & Negotiation

Meanwhile, the shift to remote work – and the technology innovations that can support it – are bringing new solutions to bear on old legal problems.

Lee is the Director of Operations for Enterprise Legal Solutions with Legility. She started her legal career in 1998 in Tennessee with Leitner, Williams, Dooley & Napolitan. After the birth of her first child, she began practicing yoga to help her stay fit and manage the stress of balancing work and family responsibilities. In 2006, her husband took an overseas position with the U.S. State Department. Lee was at first reluctant to leave her firm, but her desire to have a second child led her to take a giant step. On December 23, 2006, with two small children, she boarded a plane to Poland. Shortly after she arrived in Warsaw, Lee began planning her return to the legal workforce. This would ultimately take her to India, where she essentially started over in a part-time position with an international legal outsourcing provider. In addition to finding a new career, her time overseas allowed her to deepen her yoga practice. In 2011, she received her 200-hour certification to teach yoga from the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Shala in Chennai India. In 2017, she finished her first book, Lifestyle Lawyer. Sometimes, we all need to go against the grain and do things that make us happier, more well-rounded, and engaged. Her goal is to share this passion for wellness, health, yoga, and meditation with others.
