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.

Everything was very streamlined; I tried contacting a "regular" law firm before setting up a LawTrades account, and they didn't even respond to me (even months later). LawTrades was so fast that I wasn't even prepared for it. Good stuff.

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.
