Why running a Tech Startup is like fighting MMA 

Earlier this year I participated in my first MMA fight. I have been karate training for 25 years (3rd Degree Black Belt Goju Ryu) and have taken part in other martial arts (BJJ, wrestling) but this was, without a doubt,  the hardest thing that I have done so far.  I have also been running a tech company that builds legal artificial intelligence (Ailira)  for the last 4 years, alongside my law firm, and I was struck (pun intended) by a number of similarities in the experience.

That’s why Hall, who is not an attorney, can be a partner in this law firm.
