Ep. 3 | [Litigation] What Happens When You Get Sued (with Ray Zinn, the Longest Serving CEO in Silicon Valley)

Legal Lessons for Startups

Ray Zinn stops by Legal Lessons to talk about some of the litigations that he had to deal with when he ran Micrel Semiconductors, which, by the way, he sold for close to $900 million.  Ray talk about parts of the litigation process that were unexpected to him.  He also talks about mindset, and the outsized role that it plays in dealing with the long slog that is a lawsuit in the United States.  Some of Ray's observations were a little unexpected to me (a lawyer).  I have litigated a number of lawsuits as a trial lawyer, and I would have completely glossed over some of the things that Ray talks about (the attorney vs. entrepreneur experience is very different in a lawsuit).  So I'm glad we talked about lawsuits from his perspective.  I am pretty sure that you could talk to 20 trial lawyers and you wouldn't walk away with the perspective that Ray offers in this cast.  So I hope you listen to the end, and hope you enjoy the show!Micrel's Sale to Microchip: http://www.mercurynews.com/business/ci_28071844/micrel-one-silicon-valleys-oldest-chip-firms-agreesFeature on Ray as the Longest Serving CEO in Silicon Valley: Micrel’s Ray Zinn ends run as Silicon Valley’s longest-serving CEO – The Mercury NewsRay Zinn's Book, Tough Things First: Tough Things First, leadership and entrepreneurialism from Silicon Valley's longest serving CEOSamar K.
