Autumn Witt Boyd — Protect Your Business; Hire a Lawyer

Dare to Leap

Autumn Witt Boyd graduated in the top 10% of her class from Vanderbilt University Law School before ultimately landing as a senior associate at the premier copyright litigation law firm. Autumn eventually left BigLaw behind to start the AWB Firm in 2015 so she could spend her days helping entrepreneurs build, protect, and scale their businesses the right way. Autumn drops some timeless law wisdom on this week’s episode! Key takeaways: How did Autumn get her start as a lawyer? What made Autumn decide to start her own law firm? Autumn really just wanted to start out small and as an independent lawyer, but she hit a ceiling with the amount of work she could do. Autumn really wanted to build a company that was friendly towards women as they were raising children. The corporate lawyer environment is rough and “part-time job” means 40 hours a week. Minimum. Be friends with your competitors! It’s actually an excellent network to be tapped into. How does Autumn do a pretty traditional business all online? What can a lawyer do for a business owner? Autumn has some fantastic templates for online business owners that you can use! And! They regularly get updated. Kathy made so many legal mistakes. Ouch! You save money by paying for a bit of legal counsel. Why should you get a trademark? And when should you consider getting a trademark? Don’t have a contract? Get yourself a contract! It protects both you and the client. Don’t copy someone else’s privacy policy or terms and conditions. Resources: Awbfirm.com Autumn on LinkedIn Quotes: “A lot of entrepreneurs don’t realize what a big risk employment law is, so we help with that.” “You will save money, save yourself, and save your business by getting that legal advice upfront.” “If you buy a template and nothing else, buy a template for your privacy policy. That is actually required by law.”

When I sat down to have my chat with today’s guest, I thought it was going to be a straightforward, slightly dry conversation about trademarks for online businesses.

Autumn Witt Boyd is an award-winning intellectual property lawyer and the founder of her independent AWB Firm. Autumn and her team work with business owners to help them protect everything they’ve built, including online courses and other IP.
