We get a ton of legal questions on this site. We can’t answer them because if we act as your lawyers, you can sue us. That would not be fun. However, fear not, there is a GREAT book on most all of the issues that affect the entrepreneur. The Entrepreneurs Guide to Business Law. The book’s co-author is Craig Dauchy from Cooley Godward Kronish and along with his accomplice Constance Bagley from Harvard, they’ve written what I consider to the be the definitive treatise on the subject. I love my first and second edition copies, have them on my desk and still refer to them often. This is an easy read, but very rich in content.
If you are an first-timer or seasoned veteran, read this book. I guarantee at a minimum you’ll be a better consumer of legal services and save yourself time and money.
