There are a lot of legal, financial, and strategic concepts that early-stage startup founders are better-off learning at their own pace and on their own time, instead of paying a lawyer or other advisor to explain them often very inarticulately. Conversations with a startup lawyer are also much more effective when the founder has a solid grasp of these concepts from the beginning.
