Is a MLM Lawyer a Typical Lawyer?

This blog post is the companion post to the video: Is a MLM Lawyer a Typical Lawyer? Find out what differentiates a business lawyer, or a typical lawyer, and a MLM legal professional.

People often ask me “Are you a typical lawyer?” Most lawyers are viewed as people who sit in an office, draft contracts and argue cases in the courtroom all day. The answer is NO, we are not typical lawyers. We probably know more about multilevel marketing than most of our major clients that have been in the industry for years. We bring that knowledge to bear as we work with our clients and as they develop their business models. More than half of the discussions we have with our clients are about the MLM business itself as opposed to just purely legal issues. This gives us the opportunity to be challenged, which we welcome and we enjoy.

It is true that the hat we wear is “legal advisor” to many of the leading direct selling companies and startup mom and pop companies. Formally, we are their legal advisor; however, we are also a vital part of their business team. We greatly enjoy the many hats we wear in the direct selling industry.
