In what ways can I prepare to meet with an Internet IP consultant?

Once you hire an Internet IP consultant, they will take charge of the bulk of your legal matter. However, you must still ensure that you provide your consultant with the tools needed to properly help you. This is all to say that it is wise to prepare for your meeting in the following ways:

  • Convey a brief description of your legal issue with your consultant prior to your meeting.
  • Send over copies of critically important documents to your consultant for review prior to your meeting.
  • Bring copies of any relevant contracts between you and an employee, independent contractor, publisher, etc.
  • Bring samples of your Internet intellectual property to your meeting, along with any formal registration certificates associated with it.
  • Prepare a list of possible witnesses, defendants, and other interested parties in your potential, future dispute; this is to confirm your consultant does not have any conflicts of interest.
  • Prepare a list of questions to ask your consultant during your meeting (i.e., How long will my case take?; How much is my case going to cost?; What is the projected success rate of my case?; etc).
