If you don't want it in court don't say or do it - consider everything as potential evidence. If you do want it in court - write it down - this can help avoid going to court.

If you have a really good idea - protect it, then maybe share it but avoid big companies - they have a lot of money - IP attorneys run $350/hr - you cannot afford to go to court with them. Do your research then do some more - it is a legal system not a justice system and you do not speak the language. The legal system favors/serves the wealthy. You don't want to find this out the hard way.

All true advices ...but I would add:

Be true to yourself, stick to your gut instinct, do not accept a job that does not appeal to you or if there is no chemistry with the client...it will always bring stress, and who can be fully creative while stressed out !
