Before making your decision, you should identify the specific legal needs you will have. Startups typically want lawyers who are well versed in areas such as business management/development, transactional law, securities law, contract law and intellectual property. Also, you will want to determine what the desired role of the attorney you are seeking (ie; hiring general counsel for you startup, hiring an attorney for a short-term business transaction, etc.).
You should also consider the following:
1. Experience: You want to find an attorney that specializes in your legal matters. It is important to have an lawyer who has an in-depth understanding of your specific issues and has had success in the past.
2. Attorney’s Fees: As a startup, typically money is tight and hiring a lawyer can be a big step. It is essential to find lawyers that fall within your price range and that the money you spend will be a worth-while investment in your startup. Our service was built on transparency and strives to provide ultimate access to the cost of an attorney.
3. Professional Compatibility: Usually overlooked, this is extremely important for a startup. You will most likely be working directly with your lawyer on a regular basis. No one wants to deal with a person they don’t like or can’t get along with, no matter how good their services may be. As you build and grow your company, you want to avoid conflict and focus on success, so finding a lawyer that is compatible with your company is key.
4. Reputation: No one wants to hire a lawyer who has a terrible track record or who is hated by their former clients. You want someone who has been successful on their clients’ behalf and has a good name in the legal system. If you take a look at our site, verified client reviews will grant you the most tangible access to this information.
