I provide legal guidance to small businesses and start-ups related to corporate formation, services agreements, employment contracts, day-to-day governance and planning for the future.

Describe your Lean Startup. (If you don't have one yet, care to share details about your Dream Startup?)

I enjoy working with individuals who are enthusiastic about their start-ups and passionate about their product/service.

What is the best tool/technology/service to make your startup more efficient?

Template contracts -- it is difficult and time consuming (as well as costly) to negotiate one-off customer contracts. If you present a customer with a template contract you look organized and you start the process/relationship on your terms (and you make sure in advance that the necessary components of that contract are covered, before you start negotiations). Start-ups can then focus their customers on the quality products and services offered, rather than on the legal background noise.
