How We Can Help
All the day-to-day legal services your business needs, all in one place.
As a start-up, small business, or emerging company, your business will make decisions and take actions that raise a range of legal considerations. No matter your stage of growth, we’re here to help.
Maintaining the health of your corporation is critical to preserve and grow value from incorporation to exit. We can help you organize your business, manage contractual relationships among shareholders, maintain your minute book, and much more.
Commercial agreements can take many forms, depending on the nature of your business. From software license agreements to SaaS agreements, we can help you structure, negotiate, and formalize your business’ commercial relationships.
Intellectual property assets are a key source of value for many emerging companies. We can help you develop an IP strategy to capture, protect, and maximize the returns on your intangible assets.
Legal considerations related to employment are critical yet often overlooked by emerging companies. We can help you prepare employment and contractor agreements, structure worker compensation, set-up incentive plans, manage hiring and firing of workers, and more.
Beyond the traditional debt and equity financing models, emerging companies often reach for hybrid models such as convertible debt or SAFEs. We can help you select the right structure for your raise, prepare and negotiate the appropriate agreements, and manage the necessary corporate approvals.
