Happy Post Thanksgiving Monday
Yup, it's time to get back to work. Hopefully you all stuffed yourselves on turkey and gravy and got together with your families. I did. This week will be an interesting week for us.
We're meeting with our 3 law firms to decide who will represent us and to finally incorporate. In terms of legal help - the important things to keep in mind if you can't pay for it now are this: what do you have to give up to get representation (if anything)? What will they provide for you? I spoke with Gunderson Dettmer last week and basically was told that a good part of the incorporation isn't done by the partners you are working with, but by associates (or paralegals, etc) - it's all fairly generic. So if you have interesting legal issues, make sure your firm can support them. We may be working with some international employees (outsourcing) which is something we'll need to understand.
