I'd known the people at Tactix for many years, and knew them to be smart, well trained, ethical and hard working. Importantly, they seemed to be having a lot more fun than they'd had as lawyers, largely because they were adding tremendous value for their clients. It also seemed to me that Tactix had created a better mousetrap.
