Lawyers for Startups

When you have an idea about how to build a business, a model of how you generally see your future startup is “born” in your head.
Only startup lawyers can “package” your business into a “legal package” in accordance with the legislation of the country where you plan to establish your business.

Legal Help for Startups

In more than one legal system in the world, or in any country’s intellectual property legislation, an idea in itself is not protected by law. An agreement or contract is protected by law. And such a document must be drawn up legally, taking into account all the pitfalls. Therefore, legal services and legal assistance to startups are crucial to ensure compliance with legal requirements depending on the chosen jurisdiction of the future startup. Among the basic areas where it may be useful.
Startup legal services include:
  • business structuring including corporate governance: qualified lawyers can advise on the most suitable legal structure for your startup. It is important to remember that each structure has different liability, tax and governance implications;
  • compliance with legal requirements: startups must comply with various laws and regulations that are mandatory in the country of incorporation of such a startup. For example, a lawyer can help ensure compliance with data privacy in Europe under the GDPR (EU) or in the USA, in California, guided by the CCPA;
  • preparation of legal documents and company registration: lawyers can help with the preparation of documents necessary to establish a company as a legal entity, as well as register such a legal entity;
  • contractual work: startups often need various contracts and agreements, ranging from a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to a Master Service Agreement (MSA). Legal experts can draft and negotiate these agreements to protect your interests;
  • protection of intellectual property (IP): virtually every start is associated with intellectual property: be it patents for inventions, trademarks, copyrights or trade secrets. Lawyers specialising in intellectual property law can help register and protect intellectual property rights if necessary;
  • dispute resolution. Startups can inevitably face legal disputes, ranging from disgruntled employees to competitors in pre-court and in-court legal proceedings;
  • general legal advice. A startup always faces different areas of law: from corporate to labor. At times, there is a need to obtain good and qualified advice on how best to employ an employee who, for example, does not have a work permit or how to correctly respond to tax authorities.
The list of what legal assistance for startups includes is “open”: the faster technology develops, the more new branches of law arise and related issues that need to be resolved.

Why Startups Need Legal Advice

Classic ways of doing business have not yet «go by the board», but startups have occupied their own niche along with the usual business models. When developing a startup business, a client needs legal support from reliable business startup lawyers from the very beginning, as soon as you decide to register your business. When working with a startup, one of the main factors is flexibility. Flexibility and effective legal services for startups are crucial. Without significant experience, they are difficult to secure.
Startups need legal advice for:
  • compliance with legal requirements when registering a startup;
  • risk management, minimising or avoiding them in order to protect the interests of the startup and its shareholders;
  • protection of intellectual property;
  • giving the correct legal form to agreements between partners – creating contracts and amendments to them in order to protect the interests of the startup and minimise the likelihood of disputes;
  • dispute resolution to minimise possible losses and reputational risks;
  • strategic management of a startup.
Timely startup lawyer consultation is necessary for a startup both at the stage of building a business and throughout the entire period of development of a startup in order to protect interests and achieve business success.

Startup Lifecycle: Legal Guidance

High-quality legal assistance is of enormous importance at every stage of startup development, in particular:
Stage 1 – preliminary: each process and the creation of a startup is no exception; it has basic elements, the correct choice of which is the foundation for the further development of the company. So, this stage begins with the choice of the startup structure, the corporate governance structure and the registration of the business itself.
It is also critical at this stage to identify and protect potential intellectual property assets. Highly qualified trademark lawyers for startups will help you register a trademark and correctly evaluate the intellectual property objects inherent in a startup.
Stage 2 – launching the startup: when the company is registered and there is an understanding of who plays what role, it is important to think about counterparties. At this stage, the work of legal support for startups to “occupy the leading” because how the lawyers prepare the contract, on what terms they agree, what risks they will take into account is how the work with future partners of startups will proceed in the future. At this stage, it is important to take into account all the legal subtleties of application and compliance with laws in a particular jurisdiction.

Stage 3 – the startup gradually begins to function as a single mechanism. At this stage, the legal adviser negotiates and draws up draft agreements. A skilled negotiator lawyer knows how to draw up good contracts that will “work” for the benefit of a startup, which will help scale the business and bring it to a serious level. As soon as the start-up’s work has been established, the question arises of how to employ personnel: register the workforce as a labour collective or conclude an agreement? what conditions to offer? A startup lawyer is responsible for all this.

Stage 4 – legal support for the established process of functioning of the startup. At this stage: annual meetings of directors are held, dividends are paid (if provided) and other corporate formalities are observed. There may be a need to merge with other startups or absorb newly created but already promising startups. The process of M&A and initial public offering (IPO), mergers, acquisitions or other strategies for a startup to go international cannot be done without a strong team of business startup lawyers.

By collaborating with professional lawyers, startups can make development plans, and lawyers can implement them while minimising their client’s risks.
