Rob is a business attorney with the motto--looking at legal issues through the eyes of a business owner--don't over lawyer the deal. His view is that he is running a small business, so everything he looks at for his clients starts with this perspective. When he says "don't over lawyer the deal" he means that too many attorneys are more interested in billing that lash hour, rather than figuring out what is best for the client.

A healthy dose of prevention punctuated with necessary assignments when problems arise. As Rob observes, when it comes to your relationship with your business attorney, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
