May I enquire as to why your e-mail address is wikilegal?

If so, that's a serious conflict of interest.  You don't want your
business developer preparing reports on your current financial
situation.  The financial situation needs to be reported by someone
whose interests lie in presenting an accurate picture, not in someone
whose job is to improve that picture.

I assumed the written presentations and reports were more for sales
pitches, not financial reporting.
