Will I screw my startup up by setting up the incorporation, vesting/shareholder and other legal documents by myself?

I hate to be cliche, but … no man is an island. Forming a startup, particularly a tech startup, is not a DIY endeavor. While keeping expenses down should always be a concern when you have your own business, there are some things you should just go ahead and spend money on and that includes legal advice. Foregoing help from a legal professional at the start of your business could lead to very costly consequences down the road. For example, offhand verbal agreements and poorly written partnership or shareholder agreements have been known to result in millions of dollars of regret. (think Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss twins–yikes!) 

However, hiring a lawyer doesn’t have to be difficult or insanely expensive. My company LawTrades is disrupting the traditional way legal services are provided and delivering cost-effective, quality legal work to startups. In contrast to a service like LegalZoom, LT is a one-stop platform with a stable of pre-vetted lawyers who have a wealth of experience in helping startups with all of their legal needs. In addition to pairing you with an experienced attorney, we also assign a Project Manager who manages all aspects of your project(s) from beginning to end. The fees we charge for the legal services are flat and you pay for the work itself, not for overhead costs. We also offer a free consultation and a 100% money-back guarantee.

There is no reason for you to screw up your business, so please check us out. Good luck!
