Why get a subscription agreement

There is no universal way to purchase shares of a startup. However, a highly customizable legal document called a subscription agreement is often utilized for this purpose. A subscription agreement, or purchase agreement, is when a business promises to sell a number of shares to an investor at a certain price in exchange for an agreement by the investor to pay that price. This is the most popular method for funding smaller businesses as they typically do not have neither the resources needed to go public nor the criteria that a venture capital (“VC”) firm would require. Investors (called subscribers) and businesses prefer this agreement because it imitates a limited partnership or a silent partner as the individual investor is not expected to provide any additional funding.

This lowers the risk for the investor in exchange for them having no influence in company decisions. For the business, it solidifies any verbal agreement made with the investor such as a percentage of net income or a lump sum payout on a particular date. With any type of funding arrangement, it’s smart to have a subscription agreement lawyer draft or review your subscription agreement to assure its long lasting effectiveness.

I am so thankful to have located Law Trades. As an indie publisher, I have a tight budget and help with legal documents can "break the bank". Law Trades offered a reasonable price - suitable for a small business like mine. The service was extremely professional and I was able to receive the legal document I needed in less than 1 week.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
So far has been an excellent experience. My LawTrades attorney is excellent at what he does, has fair pricing, and is as excited to work with our company as we are to build it. LawTrades also has excellent customer support, and I've enjoyed using your interface as well to track invoices. The only thing I would want is the ability to delete projects, and to use your website on my tablet. Other than that, great work. Keep it up! I've already mentioned you to other founders and colleagues!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I had an excellent experience with LawTrades. From the initial enquiry they located a lawyer (Sylvain) who was ideal for my needs. Sylvain was very friendly, efficient and provided a great service at a great price. I would not hesitate to use LawTrades or Sylvain again. The administration and process from start to finish was made as easy as possible by the LawTrades team.

Have been working with them since back in 2015. They're building an amazing platform that's really going to disrupt how the legal practice has been looking at for quite a while. Big fan of what they are in the process of building, and the product itself is great too. Recommend this to anyone who's looking for a lawyer, but might be confused about where to start. LawTrades makes it super easy.
