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.

The benefits

Learn of fundraising opportunities 

The business agreement lawyers on LawTrades are experienced with fundraising so they can assess if a subscription agreement is indeed the best route for your company.

Helps investigate the other party 

Entering into a subscription agreement requires a thorough vetting of each side to the agreement. An experienced subscription agreement lawyer will help you with this process. 

You’ll save money in the long run 

Hiring a business agreement lawyer for issues involving fundraising is smart as any mess ups with equity can be costly. Equity needs to be coveted and a business contract lawyer will help you do just that.

Working with LawTrades has been transformative for our company. Whenever we have a legal project that has to get done, we know we can count on LT to help us find a specialized lawyer for the project at an extremely reasonable price. We've had nothing but great experiences with them thus far, and look forward to continue working with LT for many projects to come!

This team is EXCELLENT. They will reply almost immediately even in the evening hours and I have found them to be both reliable and dependable. They will answer many confusing questions for anyone and will connect you to the services you need (copyright/patent/trademark/whatever else). Personally, I have tried speaking with law groups and scheduling appointments but nothing is easier than working with LawTrades. The costs are fixed, so no surprises and no hourly ripoffs. You are guaranteed vetted lawyers who are interested in helping you at an affordable rate and you have the best customer service you could ask for. 100% recommend! This is lawyering-up made easy.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I found LawTrades through an eNewsletter called The Hustle, right around the time I was filing for some trademarks. I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out this service. It was SO EASY. LawTrades hooked me up with a Trademark Lawyer who was very knowledgeable, and he had GREAT COMMUNICATION skills. I felt like my business was in great hands, and I've already recommended a few colleagues to use LawTrades. I will definitely use them again, the next time I require legal services. Yes!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I NEVER post reviews but these guys are on to something. I've used the service a few times and it's awesome. For things that my lawyer would charge me a ton of $ for, I'm able to do at a fraction of the price and manage all of my open items through the system. The lawyers on there are pre-vetted and great to work with, haven't had any issues. They also offer other free resources like contract templates, best practices, etc. I recommend them to my friends when I can.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me.
