Closing deals meeting business targets is a key asset to success.

Experience shows that most of the time, if leaders are accompanied by technical advisors for handling legal and financial issues, they have no specific deal making partner focusing on helping them closing deals that meet their business targets. Outcome is that, too often, negotiations fail.
