Finding the “best” startup lawyer is incredibly tough. There’s a lot stuff to take into consideration like price, quality, connections, and overall professional chemistry.
This daunting task bothered me so much that I decided to create a product to help alleviate that stress called.
Just tell it what legal stuff you need done and it’ll automatically introduce you to qualified attorneys to do the job.
Aside from that resource, here’s some important factors to consider when hiring the a startup lawyer in Boston:
A great startup lawyer should offer affordable prices so that the company can focus on growing the business. It’s important to understand the lawyers fee structure. While most lawyers charge an hourly rate, you should also explore alternative fee structures such as fixed, capped, contingent or hybrid.
It’s always good to meet lawyers who are well rooted in the Boston tech community as well. They might share the same startup drive as you and provide warm introductions to the right investors/partners.
Always trust your instinct. Input from family and friends are great but can sometimes be unreliable. Your own opinion matters a lot and if you don’t feel comfortable talking with the person, or can’t see yourself having confidential conversations wit them, then you better pass.
That’s all I got but if I can personally help you out with anything startup or legal related, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We love working with startups 🙂
