Benefits of legal advice

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.

FAQ

What’s included in a Strategy Session?

It 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 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 Strategy Session?

Just about anything.

Here are some common topics of discussion during 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 insight 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.

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.
