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.

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'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.

Ease of use, professionalism of staff, and the exceptionally fast service. My LLC was formed overnight! Outstanding. I highly recommend LawTrades and Bradley Rothschild, Esq.

Quick and easy, I used LawTrades and worked with attorney Jonathan Hood to review a NDA. I got my questions answered right away. Arman was a great help making the connection. Would highly recommend the service.

Frequently asked
questions

What services are offered by LawTrades entertainment attorneys?
Our top entertainment lawyers can do it all. They can advise on strategic and business planning as well as all legal matters for small and mid-size entertainment industry businesses and freelancers. Also, our attorneys can draft, negotiate and administer all contracts governing development, production, intellectual property, financing, and distribution. The attorneys can also help with pre- and post-production licensing and ancillary distribution deals for media products as well as resolve outstanding legal and contractual disputes to help avoid costly litigation.
Can I just hire a regular attorney to help me?
You could, but it pays to have an expert to assist you. Our entertainment lawyers have many years of experience practicing in entertainment law. Between reviewing and drafting contracts, negotiating deals, acquisitions and licensing, as well as protecting various intellectual property, our lawyers know what to look for when it comes to the entertainment world.
Which states do you have entertainment lawyers in?
Although most of our entertainment lawyers call New York and California home, they usually can help clients in all states and some countries.
What is a copyright?
Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States that gives certain exclusive rights to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software and architecture, and certain other intellectual works, whether published or unpublished. Registering a copyright establishes a public record, which can help prove ownership and is required if you ever need a copyright lawyer to sue for copyright infringement. When a work contains a valid copyright notice, an infringer cannot claim in court that s/he wasn’t aware the work was copyrighted.
Why should I use a lawyer over a “do it yourself” website?
Because doing it right is priceless. Do it yourself sites have limitations, largely in that their forms are standardized and there’s a good chance necessary information particular to your needs is lacking.
