I don’t know about you but certain things are hard to differentiate. For me with AppSumo an annoying challenge is finding a lawyer or law firm. People have asked me before, “How do I choose a lawyer?”. Of course, there are some things like personality that are true for anyone you hire whether it is a marketer or a lawyer. In trying to find the right one to work with I started ask lawyers what are the best questions to ask. Here’s how to interview a lawyer.
Here’s the list. Hope it helps.
1- What’s your expertise?
2- What do you do outside of work? Personal questions to see if you like them.
3- How much do you cost? Are you able to defer fees?
4- What relationships do you have that could be beneficial to us?
5- What companies similar to us do you represent? Can you intro me to X?
6- Who would you use if you were looking for a lawyer / law firm?
7- What are the most useful questions to ask when choosing a law firm?
Any others you like?
