One small step at a time.

I'm in an interesting holding pattern for the next 85 days. I can't start practicing because I'm not a NY licensed attorney. I can do some patent law, but nothing IP related other than patent prosecution. It makes no sense to take clients with the bar exam looming and bar review begins in just a few weeks.

Its one of those "sit on your hands" moments.

In the meantime to pass the time, I have been working with a local document review company who placed me on a few projects to pass the time. The strange result is that there is now no time to do the things I'll need to do to get up and running -- set up a web site, set up a professional corporation or LLC (not sure which would be better), and looking into IP malpractice insurance. This has gotten me scared, making me want to run towards a safer route. I'm still resolute on starting a firm, taking this one step at a time.

I'm impressed by your resourcefulness all along.

Start your firm, be resolute in that: you will succeed and have the skills to do so.

In the meantime, let me know if there's anything that might require the skills of someone versed in paperwork (manuscripts, grants and so forth) from a biotech point of view might be handy with. I got laid off not long ago and am more than willing to get in on the ground floor of a good venture.
