Abstract

Entrepreneurs have the capacity to add value to the economy and the community. Business lawyers — including business finance lawyers — want to help entrepreneurs achieve their objectives. Despite incentives to a symbiotic relationship, however, entrepreneurs and business finance lawyers are not always the best of friends. This symposium piece offers several approaches to bridging this gap between entrepreneurs and business finance lawyers.

Keywords: Entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, finance, business lawyer, business finance lawyer, corporate finance law
