Five Suggestions About Working With Lawyers Ross | January 28th, 2010

Prior to crowdSPRING, I practiced law for 13 years. During that time, I counseled and represented clients (from internet startups to Fortune 100 companies) in transactional matters and in complex trials. I’ve set at the table as a lawyer, and now have the perspective of an entrepreneur.

This week on my personal blog, I’ve been talking about the biggest frustrations expressed by entrepreneurs when working with lawyers. Many of these frustrations are fair, but you can take steps to improve your relationship with your lawyer – and more importantly, to find a lawyer you trust. In the video below, I discuss five things that entrepreneurs and small businesses can do to reduce their frustrations and to improve the relationship with their lawyers.

Do you have other suggestions that I haven’t discussed? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

    Hi Ross,
    First I cannot get the video to play. Second, and based on the first, it may also be valuable to have the test of your talk. I say this because I have run into not just this problem before, but where you are actually tuned into a speaker and the video keeps hanging up so you gt consistant sound bites. It is hard to absorb without the consistant flow of content (dialogue) that way.

    Working with patent lawyers is a different issue as I am an inventor and this is my love hate relationship

    Thanks!
