Beyond that, for a businessperson having a relationship with a lawyer and a CPA is useful for the same reasons that having a relationship with a physician is useful for health concerns. You don't want to have to vet a lawyer at the point you _need_ a lawyer. By looking now, in a low-pressure situation, you're in a good position to put in some time to pick a lawyer or law firm you're comfortable with, and to see how they handle you.

Just get your ducks in a row beforehand. Adding a five-minute question to a half-hour consultation is going to be a lot cheaper both in time and money than having to schedule a second consultation.
