On today’s episode of The Startup Chat we discuss the legal side of owning a business. So many founders depend upon their lawyers to “do the thinking” for them. During today’s episode we discuss why you need to be proactive with a lawyer and how to avoid common missteps in the legal process.

Just a disclaimer here: We are not lawyers. We’re just discussing our experiences here.

Today’s Points:

  • Why you should interview a lawyer.
  • Understanding that lawyers aren’t responsible for your business.
  • Thinking beyond option A or B.
  • How to not be lazy.
  • Being aware of the legal “grey areas.”
  • Why you should always understand what you’re signing.
