Let’s be honest, no one dreams about going to see a lawyer. We get it. It’s one step worse than going to see a mechanic, but not as bad as going to the dentist, so I guess we’re lucky.

What we’ve found though is that very often entrepreneurs don’t fully know what lawyers do or when they need to go see a lawyer. And for good reason – running a business is hard and in an era of self-help services, we often try to do what we can ourselves before paying others to do it.
