In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Danielle Liss shares the importance of having someone in the legal department on your side as a form of insurance for your business and actionable steps you can take right now to start integrating legal into your business proactively, not reactively. Some of the things Danielle and I cover in this episode are:

  • What is the difference between contracting an outside in-house legal counsel and employing legal help on your team. 
  • The importance of succession planning in your business. 
  • Seeking legal help as a preventative measure, not a reactive one. 
  • Reasons why someone might be fearful of or try to avoid legal help. 
  • Advice for those looking to take the first steps into seeking legal help for their business. 
  • The most common legal issues that should be looked at within a business. 
  • How to know when it is time to bring legal services in house. 
  • The benefit of using templates until you’re at a place to invest in legal counsel. 

Legal is not something to be feared but a resource and an investment that is going to grow and change as you do.
