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. Too often business owners attempt to deal with legal issues on their own, only to find themselves needing an attorney to clean up the mess. Before, companies were left with having to set up a legal strategy consultation and play phone tag traditional law firms. Now, with a Legal Strategy Session and LawTrades in general, entrepreneurs can receive instant, quality legal advice without the hassles. 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. The same goes with setting up your legal strategy session. 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.

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.

Christian C.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It was so easy to manage through the text interaction when I got started. It was easy, fast and painless. I am very impressed

Jill J.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

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.
