Why do startups need legal counsel?

  • Formation: Startups need legal help to properly form their company and select the right legal structure (e.g. LLC, C-Corp, etc.). Legal professionals can help founders navigate the legal requirements for forming a company, including filing the appropriate paperwork with the state

  • Contracts: Startups often need to negotiate and draft contracts with customers, partners, and vendors. Legal counsel can help startups ensure that their contracts are legally binding and protect their interests.

  • Intellectual property: Startups often have unique and valuable intellectual property, such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights. Legal counsel can help startups protect their intellectual property and prevent others from infringing on their rights.
