How hard is it for a startup to change lawyers?

It’s pretty simple and just about any lawyer would advise you make the switch if you aren’t happy with your legal representation. What many startups don’t realize is not all law firms are created equal. Professional chemistry, price, and quality should affect your decision on which lawyer or law firm you ultimately choose.

Great startup lawyers should offer affordable prices so that you can spend your money on more important things like growing your business. The best startup lawyers out there provide connections to support true startup growth and inspire the spirit on entrepreneurship by providing warm introductions that can change your business for the better.

Always remember that you hire a person, not a firm. You may retain the finest law firm in the U.S. but every firm has great lawyers, good lawyers, and some that are neither. You only get the lawyer you hire.

Most importantly, professional chemistry totally matters! Choose a lawyer you can actually see yourself getting along with. Input from friends and family are great but sometimes can be unreliable. While expertise and years of experience are important, if you don’t feel comfortable with the person, or can’t envision yourself having confidential conversations with them, then you should probably find someone else.
