Brian Rogers considers lawyering in the startup ecosystemBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // November 28, 2012 in Lawyers, Legal Docs, Startups
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?”
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.
