I've seen quite a few discussions on non-disclosure agreements, but not really for when you are approaching a potential lawyer to work with. Yet, I was advised by a friend to bring a NDA, the first time I meet the lawyer to discuss our eventual future work together. I was slightly surprised since I thought there's attorney-client confidentiality, but, I guess I won't really be a client yet, so here are my questions:
1) Do I really need a NDA for that first meeting? And if yes, what about the next ones -- at what point does the attorney-client confidentiality begins?
2) How much of the startup idea is it safe to discuss during a first meeting?
A bit of additional info: at this point, I'll need the lawyer mostly to make sure I've properly filled out documents and checking my TOS. Nothing "major". And, in case it matters, the plan is to launch the initial version of the service in January.
