Do you need your startup lawyer in the same state as you?

Generally, no your startup lawyer does not have to be in the same state as you. When it comes to a Delaware corporation, a startup attorney in Idaho, Hawaii and Maine should have the same knowledge as a startup attorney in California or New York. It’s when you form your company in your home state that you may need local counsel. However, for most LLCs and corps, a startup attorney in any state should be able to assist you. We have plenty of startup attorneys on our site – LawTrades. Stop by for a free consultation if any legal issues ever face your startup!
