In this inaugural episode, Craig Budner interviews Lynn Moore, Jr. President and CEO of Tyler Technologies and former lawyer at Hughes & Luce, the predecessor firm for the K&L Gates Texas offices.


Key takeaways from their discussion include:

  • Share Lessons Learned: From big law to in-house General Counsel, President, and now CEO of a billion-dollar company over the past 20 years, this is one story of an interesting path to business success.
  • Stick to Commitments: Try not to oversell, but execute on the commitments made to build credibility, specifically with investors.
  • Know Your Client’s Business: Clients want you to use your legal skills to help them make good business decisions.  Think ahead about issues and opportunities that may arise with your client and anticipate the desired end-results as you advise them.
  • Go the Extra Mile: The willingness to go above and beyond others will set you apart.
  • Team Values and Mission Statement: Share your values and mission statement with your employees and cultivate a culture that empowers them to feel that they’re a part of the plan.
