Hi there, I’m Raad. I remember very well the challenges of finding experienced and affordable startup legal services in NYC (especially as an early stage startup). Frustrated with wasting time and money driving to attorneys, I founded LawTrades in 2013 to help startups like yours find experienced startup attorneys in NYC (and other major markets).
gives you on-demand access to a number of pre-screened, highly experienced attorneys via SMS. We cover areas such as splitting shares among co-founders, drafting shareholders’ agreements, drafting websites terms and conditions and privacy policies, drafting bylaws/operating agreements and more.
The things you should focus on when looking for attorneys are: price, experience with your startup’s line of business, and professional compatibility.
You’ve taken a great first step, identifying some of your startup’s legal needs. The need to find the best lawyer can directly affect the ability of your startup to succeed (for more on this, take a look at this article about why it is so important to find the right lawyer –).
I hope this answer helps you 🙂 I am more than happy to help out fellow NYC startups, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have anymore questions. Best of luck and much success!
