Interesting Article on the Intersection of Lawyers/Startups

Thought I would share this article that I read a little while back about the intersection of lawyers and the start-up community. It discusses why both sides might be averse to pairing up with the other (“the┬árisk-averse attorney may be leery of the often unstructured, right-brained world of tech startups. Indeed, tech entrepreneurs are probably just as off-put by the idea of a lawyer hanging around their office cramping their style.”)

Interesting commentary about how the two can join forces for common benefit. “[A] lawyer on the early team can contribute to a thriving company culture by asking the right questions at the right times, providing perspective on crucial transactions, and getting smart fast on issues where the rest of the team lacks expertise.”
