Arm And A Leg
One thing the world is never short of: A good expensive lawyer. Everyone knows the, “this guy will charge you an arm and a leg, but he’s really good” lawyer. Every lawyer is really good if you don’t know any better.
So it was refreshing when we met Suzie from SDW Venture Law (which incidentally also boasts her initials on the firm’s name – only good lawyers can get away with that). She is one of those invaluable lawyers who understand the constraints of start up business and doesn’t have the punch clock ticking the minute you walk in the door. A good lawyer can help a company in business development, financing options and the always dreaded, contractual agreement negotiations. A good lawyer understands helping a company grow will only lead to more legal work for the law firm. Sometimes an investment of time is worth more then sending a huge bill for each email sent to and from your lawyer.
