Amit Khanna, General Counsel for Knotel. He was photographed at their New York office on Madison Ave. on May 30, 2018.

About two years ago, when Amit Khanna was doing some legal work for “headquarters as a service” Knotel as an outside consultant, he wasn’t convinced the company needed a full-time in-house lawyer. So the CEO, Amol Sarva, told him, “OK, well, join us full time and work on more than legal work.” The offer appealed to Khanna, who didn’t expect he’d ever be a general counsel of a company.

Think Lean Daily Message

"A lawyer with talent can always do a better job with the benefit of a process to apply it effectively, efficiently and transparently.

The process should identify conflicting needs and goals at the time when they should be discovered, the beginning, and it should culminate in accountability and improvement. These are the keys to providing a service which is consistently reliable. And consistent reliability is the single most important key to repeat business"
