Giving advice requires an in depth understanding of these issues and the different cultures of academicians versus corporate lawyers.

They provide a clear description of critical issues that are understood by surprisingly few, e.g., liquidation preferences and participation rights of preferred stock. This section alone makes Connecting with Companies worthwhile reading for any academic scientist with an interest in the corporate world.
