I am a lawyer with a lot of experience in M&A advisory (due diligence, contract negotiation, etc). I im inclined to think that I could just do the legal work in the search myself and save that money or using it for hiring other kind of advisors instead of retaining a law firm that will do precisely what I can do.

Question: do you think is a good idea to undertake this activity myself; or even if I can do it, just hire a law firm?
