Brian Rogers considers lawyering in the startup ecosystem

This morning I suggest you go over to Brian Rogers' blog, where Brian has answered the question I posed to him last week: “Is a Startup Ecosystem Without Lawyers a Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

Leaving the buildingI'm still reflecting on how Brian divides the startup ecosystem into three segments. He may be right about that, but I want to think about it a bit more.

For that segment of the startup ecosystem in which I think Brian is suggesting he and I work most, Brian recommends that more tasks be handled by nonlawyers within a law firm. That makes sense. But isn't a law firm that can deliver services without lawyers well on the way, possibly, to being something other than a law firm?

Those are just two initial reactions. Go read Brian's post as he has thought this through. He's advancing our important discussion on the topic of document standardization and startup legal costs.
