What Factors or Criteria Should Startups Consider When Hiring a Good Lawyer? All too often startups fail because entrepreneurs, founders and small business owners hire the wrong lawyer. What factors or criteria should a startup consider before retaining or hiring a startup lawyer?
- Who are you really hiring? – Are you paying full price for the partner only to find out that the lower level associate is doing all of your company’s work.
- Accessibility – Often times startups need to speak to their attorney at a moment’s notice, after working hours and on the weekends. Is your lawyer going to call you back quickly? Will you be able to speak to them at night or on weekends? Can you text them? How long does it take them to respond to call and emails. These are all very important questions that you should ask before hiring any good startup attorney.
- You should like your startup lawyer – No one lawyer is perfect or has the best personality but if you don’t like your startup lawyer the relationship won’t last very long.
- How are you paying your lawyer? – I would recommend that you enter into a flat rate fixed legal fee arrangement with your startup lawyer and ask them to put in writing how much each and every legal project, assignment or task will cost your company.
