Free Resources

Stumped about a startup biz term? That’s why we put together the Startup Dictionary to cut through the jargon and turn you into an expert. It’s your free go-to resource for what you need to know about bull markets, par value and everything in between. It’s made by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.
What kind of entity should your new business be: a corporation or an LLC? When you’re new to the game, it can be really hard to decide. Our handy biz quiz can help point you in the right direction (though we of course recommend that you also speak with one of our awesome attorneys first before you make a final decision).
We’ve heard people say there’s no real handbook for starting a business, but this is our best shot at changing that and creating one. Written by our CEO and resident entrepreneurial expert Raad Ahmed, this easily-downloadable e-book is an easy reference guide to navigating the complex world of starting a new business. It’s also a great intro into LawTrades and what we can provide as your legal resource partner.
Our blog is a great place to drop in and see what’s going on in the LawTrades world. Come learn from our founders, read inspiring startup stories, learn legal tips and tricks, and a whole lot more. Interested in contributing your own content? We’re always looking for talented writers to join the team, so please drop us a line if you’ve got an interesting blog idea.
Legal contracts make your business look legit. But it can be hard to find the right ones. Our free contract library is your resource for all the company used contract templates you might need for your new business. Keep in mind that templates should probably be reviewed by an attorney to avoid any issues down the road.
We get a lot of questions from our customers. So we decided to catalog the most common ones and create an FAQ resource. You’ll find answers to popular questions about formation, IP, contracts, employment, fundraising, immigration, and company culture. And we’re always adding more answers as they come in, so check back frequently.
Pricing in the legal world is historically complex. We wanted to change that. So we created this easy price estimator tool that’ll give you an idea how much your next legal project might cost, so there are fewer surprises down the line. Of course, you’ll need to speak with a legal expert to get a totally accurate price. But the estimator is a great place to start.
