Overview

Law school prepares students to be lawyers, but once they reach the real world, new attorneys often find they lack needed business knowledge. Not only are they uninformed about the management of their firms, but they are also unprepared to understand the needs of business clients.

Author Wes Anson, a Harvard MBA and noted expert on the legal issues of intellectual property and business valuation, shares keen insights in this practical, accessible guide for lawyers. With his unique legal-business perspective, Anson reveals how businesspeople view lawyers, why businesspeople use lawyers, and what lawyers need to know about business and businesspeople.
