Ten Minutes

It is disturbing to think of how often I've seen executives and managers who, although urged to seek legal counsel, decide that doing so would be too expensive and time-consuming. They instead wind up making a decision which blows up and consumes far more time and money.

In the great majority of those instances, calling their attorney would have taken around ten minutes. I'll grant that lawyers have a reputation for complicating matters but there are many times when a trusted advisor will simplify the situation and avoid needless complications.

Ten minutes without sound advice can be jarringly expensive.
