EP 270 | Protect Yourself from Litigation with Jamie Lieberman

April 26, 2022

Listen Now

While there is no single method for protecting yourself and your business from legal trouble, a Swiss cheese defence—multiple layers of protection that work together—is a solid approach you can rely on. Jamie Lieberman of Hashtag Legal shares her experience helping entrepreneurs with the protections they need to safely run their businesses.

In this episode we learn:

  • how to disclaim responsibility and limit liability when trades are hired by the client
  • becoming a general contractor may be a way to remain compliant with local laws
  • it’s smart to have excellent business insurance
  • before you get hit with a lawsuit, you will have an opportunity to agree on a solution
  • a lawyer can be instrumental in pre-litigation
  • do not use text messaging for client communication

Design Intervention

The best piece I ever received was learning how to be comfortable with failure and embracing those moments rather than running from them. When I left my full-time legal job after I had my first son, I started a second blog — a mom blog — and it failed spectacularly. Looking back now, I know that was because it wasn’t true to my voice and wasn’t what I was truly passionate about. But, without that failed mom blog, I never would have founded Hashtag Legal because it introduced me to the business of blogging.
