How to (Ab)use Your Lawyer

February 8, 2016 | 3:00 PM

Having a relationship with a good attorney can be crucial for any client/service business. An attorney can help uncover all kinds of issues that you might not be considering throughout the course of your day-to-day operations. And as much as you might be tempted to write or negotiate your own contracts, it might not be the best idea.

In this session, Gabe will surface a number of areas for you to look out for including:

  • Statement of Work and pricing model pitfalls, problems and solutions
  • Important contract provisions
  • Negotiation strategies
  • The dangers of the "virtual" documented water cooler chat

There will be adequate Q&A time to ensure your burning legal questions get answered.
