Startups & Small Business

In today’s highly-demanding marketplace, you need cutting-edge legal solutions to help you stay competitive. And while innovation and creativity are vital to your success, you also need business representation that is backed by the knowledge and foresight gained from decades of experience. We bring this balance of innovation and experience to everything we do when working with business clients. 

Innovative Legal Representation for Startups

There are few things that are more exciting than starting a new business. By investing in experienced legal counsel at the outset, you can position your new business for future success. We help startups build a strong foundation while their owners focus on developing their product and pursuing opportunities. We provide startups with creative legal representation from formation to operational concerns: 

  • Choosing the right corporate structure for your startup
  • Drafting and negotiation of partnership and shareholder agreements
  • Drafting, execution, and filing of foundational corporate documents such as Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws
  • Protection of intellectual property
  • Drafting and negotiation of employment and compensation agreements as well as vendor contracts
  • Development of policies and procedures including ethics and compliance programs

When we work with startups, we see ourselves as your partner – your success is our success. We can help you get your business off the ground quickly and also help you build a business that has the resiliency and flexibility you need for future growth and success. 

Hands-On Legal Representation for Small Businesses

Even though your business may not be a global corporation, that doesn’t mean that you don’t face sophisticated legal challenges. The challenges that small businesses face can be just as complex as those faced by large corporations, and often require in-depth knowledge of your local economy that can be difficult to find. We have deep roots in our local communities – we know what it takes to be successful in those communities and we understand the challenges you face. 

Forward-Thinking, Fully-Customized Business Representation

Your business is unique, and as a result, form documents and one-size-fits-all solutions won’t work. We start by getting to know you and your business – your goals, your values, your challenges, and your needs. From there, we then tailor our representation to meet your unique needs, with an emphasis on creativity and innovation.
