What it's like to have a go-to business lawyer

I love being the go-to lawyer for my client who owns an IT services company.

When I met the CEO, he told me that he was tired of playing lawyer. He said that it wasn’t a role he relished, because he didn’t know what he didn’t know, and he needed someone to help keep a legal eye on the business.

I developed all of their standard contract forms and helped to resolve several customer and vendor disputes early. But the most important part for him is that, now that I understand the business better, I can be more proactive in avoiding future legal problems.

Are you a CEO who complains of having too little time and too much work on your plate? Would you rather focus on growing the business?

Consider how much time you spent last month on legal issues. I can take some of that work off your plate.
