In getting started we all take shortcuts. I'm thinking about when we:
- hire employees without having employee manuals or making them agree that they are at-will employees
- enter into an agreement with a partner with a contract that does not have all the legal-eze in it
- make a deal without getting full legal advice
In big companies it's expected that all of this is done 100% correctly but in startups we have to make a tradeoff about how much energy to devote to this. My questions is have you ever regretted it? Have you ever gotten into a situation where you though "I really wished I'd gotten more legal advice before going into this" or is it just as easy to fix most things after the fact.
