Over the last 10 years, Mr. Lacki has worked both in private practice and as in-house counsel.

Mr. Lacki has extensive experience in the high-tech sector, including the telecom and software industries, and has worked on projects in the United States and in Europe, Latin America and Asia. His successes for his corporate clients include negotiation of a $70 million, multi-year network development project with a major domestic wireless carrier; creation of a software licensing model for a client's advanced technology services group, allowing them to develop, analyze and integrate third party software planning tools; generation of an additional $33 million in annual sales through implementation of an internal contracting procedure aligning sales staff and supply chain management teams, satisfying both financial reporting requirements and the use of automated purchasing programs; reduction in a carrier's network capital and operational expenditures, allowing for the continued expansion into the top 20 national markets by assisting with the sale/lease back of certain network assets to a third party.
