Why plan your legal strategy

Whether you recently launched your business, currently bootstrapping it, or simply unsure of where to begin, a legal strategy session can help.

Our Legal Strategy Sessions have helped 100s of companies deal with various small business legal issues. By now, we know the right lawyers to set you up with so that your time will be spent wisely.

After signing up, you’ll have the chance to text with our automated system that will gather all the info needed for us to set you up with a legal strategy session. You’ll see that Legal Strategy Sessions can help you figure out the first step to any issue you have and aid you with preventing similar problems. Give it a shot - it’s free after all.

The benefits

Employment Law

Issues such as wage and hour violations, employee / contractor classification, employee benefits, confidentiality agreements, and workplace discrimination can really impact a company’s financial stability and public image.

Business Formation

Choosing the right entity (C-Corp vs. S-Corp vs. LLC) and appropriate state to form in implicates the amount of taxes you will pay, and whether the entity itself will have to pay taxes. An attorney will also ensure you are not exposed to any personal liability, and, if applicable, that your company is incorporated in a way that allows for future investors.

Intellectual Property

Topics like patents, trademarks, copyrights, confidentiality agreements, and IP assignment clauses are technical and confusing. An experienced IP attorney can assess your IP and the most cost-effective of protecting it.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

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!

Frequently asked
questions

What’s included in a Legal Strategy Session?
Legal strategy begins with a conversation with a member of our team to figure out the best attorney for your needs. Thereafter, a 30 or 60 minute phone or video session will take place with a knowledgeable business attorney. The attorney will provide sound legal advice that fully answers your questions. Afterwards, you’ll receive a follow-up email with any resources discussed during the session.
What if I really like the attorney I spoke to - can I retain him/her?
Yes, that’s the great thing about Legal Strategy Sessions. Assuming you feel comfortable with the attorney you spoke to, you will have the chance to use him/her down the road when you need them, or immediately after!
What can I ask during the Legal Strategy Session?
Just about anything.

Here are some common topics of discussion during Legal Strategy Sessions:

Business Formation: Choosing the right entity (C-Corp vs. S-Corp vs. LLC) and appropriate state to form in implicates the amount of taxes you will pay, and whether the entity itself will have to pay taxes. An attorney will also ensure you are not exposed to any personal liability, and, if applicable, that your company is incorporated in a way that allows for future investors

Immigration Law: Determining which visas you’re eligible for can be a difficult task. Also, starting up a business while on a visa is risky. An immigration attorney can guide you through the hoops that exist and provide you with feasible options so you can work and live in the U.S.

Employment Law: Issues such as wage and hour violations, employee / contractor classification, employee benefits, confidentiality agreements, and workplace discrimination can really impact a company’s financial stability and public image.

Co-Founder Disputes: A dispute among the founders can ultimately cause a business to close its doors. An attorney who has experienced this type of controversy can provide great legal strategy on how to resolve the situation amicably.

Intellectual Property: topics like patents, trademarks, copyrights, confidentiality agreements, and IP assignment clauses are technical and confusing. An experienced IP attorney can assess your IP and the most cost-effective of protecting it.

Contract Advice: Unfortunately, contracts are often voluminous and filled with legal jargon, making them difficult for non-attorneys to understand them. Whether it’s before or after you signed it, a contract attorney will be able to quickly interpret your rights and develop a legal strategy.
What’s limited liability protection?
It’s the biggest reason why people choose to incorporate their businesses. It provides owners protection from their personal assets against creditors’ claims. As long as the owners truly treat their business as a separate entity, they retain such protection.
What’s a registered agent?
A business or individual designated to receive service of process when a business is a party in a legal action or when the state attempts to communicate with the company. Some states, like Delaware, require entities registered within its jurisdiction to maintain an in-state registered agent.
