Your Lawyer: An Owner's Manual is a brass-tacks insider's guide that demonstrates smarter ways to find, work with, and motivate attorneys. Author Henry C. Krasnow is an attorney with four decades of experience helping small businesses, and he writes with an insider's perspective on what businesspeople need to know about managing this pivotal business relationship. The book outlines this relationship in ways that are clear, simple, and straight-forward so that readers can learn ways to save time, frustration, and money. It furnishes a useful overview of the entire legal process-what's happening, why it's happening, and even why it's often so frustrating. Your Lawyer: An Owner's Manual should help you solve your legal problems with less cost and more satisfaction. It will help business-people understand what legal issues they should be able to control-and there are a lot of them. And the more you control, the more likely you are to be satisfied with the outcome and with your lawyer. Among the issues the book covers:
The discovery, care, and feeding of good lawyers Twelve great ways to get more from your lawyer for less Litigation: it's not about justice, it's about dollars Translating legal language Managing your lawyer during a contract negotiation Estate planning Family ownership issues
Small businesses are consumers of legal services. Your Lawyer: An Owner's Manual will help them identify whether they are working with the best possible lawyer and will show them how, by becoming better consumers, they can develop strategies to get higher-quality legal service.

Reviews - What do customers think about Your Lawyer: An Owner's Manual: A Business Owner's Guide to Managing Your Lawyer (AgatePro)?
Read before calling your lawyer... Jan 16, 2008
This book is both an excellent primer on small business legal issues and an invaluable resource for deriving maximum value from your lawyer. You will value it for the expertise and introduction to the questions you didn't know to ask. Your lawyer will appreciate having a more informed client. As a family business consultant, I make sure my clients have a copy of this on their bookshelf.

Very useful book! Mar 19, 2006
I found this book extremely helpful! A copy should be on everyone's bookshelf whether he or she owns a business or not. It is an important reference.
Navigating the relationship with your lawyer can be a very frustrating and intimidating experience. This book clarifies important issues, and gives realistic guidelines for choosing a lawyer and communicating with the person you choose.
I know I will refer to it often.
Your Lawyer: An Owner's Manual Feb 25, 2006
Every small or medium size business owner or decision maker should read Krasnow's book. It won't tell you how to solve your legal problems, but it will realistically explain how the law, and lawyers, work.
After reading it, you'll be able to intelligently choose the right lawyer for your business and evaluate his or her advice. It will also explain how to effectively manage your lawyer when they're working for you, and how to get the most for your legal fees.
Krasnow's comments, especially regarding family owned businesses and potential ownership and succession problems, reflect extensive experience and knowledge. His recommended solutions come across as sound, reasonable and fair.
At some point, whether for contract creation, litigation or sale and/or succession, every business will need legal advice and services. It makes sense to make an informed choice of lawyers to furnish this advice. This book will help you do so.
