Good question. When it comes to raising venture funding, it’s important to hire the right attorney. Here are some factors to think about:
1. Price: Hiring a lawyer is always an expense to account for. However, you want to be sure that the money is a good “bang for your buck”, given the legal services provided; saving your company money and headaches in the long run.
2. Experience/Track Record: It’s always a good idea to find an attorney who has worked with companies similar to yours. So in your case, fintech companies. Familiarity with your company’s industry breeds trust, and having your legal concerns addressed effectively.
3. Chemistry: A good lawyer-client relationship is vital to having your company’s legal goals met. You will spend a lot of time with your attorney, and it’s difficult to move your company forward if you hire an attorney that you can’t get along with.
One other thing to note is that the best lawyer for your company may not necessarily be the one who charges the most or is near the town you live in. There are many great, experienced lawyers, who are well-versed with financial services companies, available on. We want you to like your lawyer. That’s why we offer a free initial consultation so you can see if your attorney is the right fit for your business. Hope this helps!
