Our Philosophy

We have worked on both the legal and business sides of a start-up and know first hand how legal services can be costly and intimidating to growing businesses. We set out to create Slingshot with the following principles in mind:

  • Tackling legal issues before they arise is practical and cost-efficient.
  • Demystifying legal fees allows business to feel confident in seeking out the help they need.
  • Providing tools and resources can empower clients to independently make informed business decisions.
  • Legal services should be about growing your business, not ours.
