When is the best time to hire someone with law/business experience? I've got a friend with a JD MBA, that is looking for good start up companies where his services might be valued. He worked in law for 6 to 7 years, and wants to work in more of a team/sales environment. He's a sharp guy that graduated from Vanderbilt.
He's looking for younger companies where he can help with business decisions as well as legal. I've encouraged him to talk with some Venture Capitalists that has lead him to some introductions in some start up companies.
I'm trying to help him focus in on what kind of start up companies would need his skills. Any general or specific information would be helpful.
