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.

LawTrades has been pivotal for us by providing great legal advice and simplify things for us to understand exactly what and why we needed to do x,y and z. I remember I heard about the platform at a Meetup event and all I needed to do was follow up with one of the founders to ask for general advice. I was then directed to their website where I linked up with an attorney through a click of a button. Almost everything from there on became automated. We incorporated quickly and efficiently without breaking the bank. I have since used the platform several times again for things like our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use and Vendor Agreements and Lawtrades has always lived up to its standards of makings things simpler and more cost effective. Very pleased with the platform and will continue to handle my legal work through it. A little bonus point. They’ve been very generous and every time I referred someone to the platform I got a discount on my next project. Highly recommend!

Both times I’ve had the experience any startup founder wants - a simple, quality experience, delivered quickly at the best possible price. That’s what I feel I got. After having a terrible 4 month long experience trying to set up a local US business bank account (being a non US resident) with one branch, which eventually fell through, both Jared and Ashish helped me establish an account with one of their partnered banks in a matter of weeks, for a grand total of $0. Massive pain killer. Disclosure - I was paying for other services (Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, company setup etc), but they knew this banking situation was causing me serious problems and they helped facilitate the opening seamlessly, and as Shane Ballman mentioned above, without nickle and dimeing.

I was interested in starting my own software consultancy (Beta Reduction) in the United States but since I lived in Mexico I wasn’t sure about the right way for a non-resident of the United States to start a company. Luckily, I found LawTrades which I have used for multiple projects ranging from incorporation to a consultation on how to begin preparing an application for an E-2 visa.

After using Lawtrades, I was able to effeciently find a qualified IP lawyer to help accelerate my start-up. The platform is user friendly and supplies a quality list of competent attorneys you are freely able to connect with. Would recommend this service to anyone trying to make legal connections.

I've used LawTrades for legal stuff twice. Both times I got it done in half the time for half the price. And the best part is you know exactly what you're getting into up front.

Glad I found LawTrades when I needed the help. I didn’ t need anything complicated, just the legal documents I needed to improve my business. I got connected with Jared Stark to draw up my documents for me and I’ve been going back to him and LawTrades for new documents and revisions ever since.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It was such a great experience, that I go back to Jared for every legal item we need and constantly lean on his expertise. I’ve referred him to other SaaS Founders, for advice and legal help, as well. Highly recommend you check out what they are doing… making Legal processes so much easier, convenient, and manageable. Plus, they truly are making sure you aren’t getting crushed by outrageous legal fees that many other law firms do.

I needed to re-home my company from Georgia to Delaware, and they put me in contact with a lawyer (Hi Jon!) who is responsive, eager to help, and understands law as it relates to startups. Not only is this guy awesome to work with, it was a flat rate on the project and I’ve gone back to him several times afterwards and he doesn’t nickel and dime me for follow-up questions about the move.

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. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.
