It’s a small thing in the bigger picture, but I’m excited to note that I hired a lawyer today — I’m particularly excited because:
a) he was referred by a friend who I really trust
b) we’ve had a number of extremely positive working sessions already, and
c) I think he’s going to teach me a lot about the startup/fundraising/business building process — I’m expecting that he’ll serve more of an advisor/mentor role vs. simply a legal resource
We closed the deal with a mixture of equity and fee smoothing, and it was sealed with a handshake — I’m happy with it, and I think he is as well.
FYI — his name is Chris Hurley — he’s a Principal at Beacon Law Advisors.
