1 Feb ’07

Ask the VC is just churning out sensible, intelligent startup advice – it’s one of the best new tech business blogs in a long while. Today’s post on finding a lawyer is a good example – extract: “Venture capital law isn’t rocket science [or as my friend Mathew says, “rocket surgery”], so if you get someone being too boastful, or putting down his / her competitors, they clearly are bragging more than it is warranted. The most important part of being a venture capital lawyer is being a good listener with sound judgment and having a good relationship with the entrepreneurs, along with the requisite experience. Make sure with whomever you choose, that you see them as a true partner, not an hourly paid servant.”
