We will work with you to decide what type of entity is right for you, form the company and handle all of the initial legal documents, such as board resolutions, by-laws or an operating agreement, LLC publication and basic contracts.
Best for: Entrepreneurs looking to start a business and hit the ground running.
Tech startups building traditional websites and/or mobile applications require more attention and have different legal considerations than ordinary businesses.
The “Tech Startup” package is perfect for companies that need terms of service and privacy policies for websites and apps, trademark registrations and branding advice, contracts with software developers to ensure that all IP (intellectual property) belongs to the company, analysis of the iOS® and Android® development agreements, and general contracts with vendors and other legal services in the ordinary course of business.
Best for: Tech companies who need to thrive and survive online.
If you seek financing through angel investors and venture capital (VC) transactions, and the ultimate goal of participating in an IPO — you have set your sights high, and you have come to the right place.
In addition to all items listed in the other packages, we help startups structure investor transactions, drafting all necessary documents for private placements (such as Regulation D) to ensure compliance with the complex federal and state securities laws. We negotiate the rights for each class of stock, handle vesting issues, Section 83(b) elections, stock options and other founder, shareholder and investor matters.
Please visit our Corporate and Securities page for more information on this area of our practice.
Best for: Companies who rely on outside investors and complex transactions to develop, grow, pivot and go public one day.
Trademark registrations are the best way to protect your name, logo and overall brand identity. You need attorneys who are experienced in dealing with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) and will give you personalized advice and obtain a registration.
We will handle (i) trademark search and clearance, (ii) filing and prosecuting trademark applications with the USPTO, (iii) responding to non-substantive USPTO office actions, (iv) correspondence with the USPTO, and (v) delivery of your trademark registration certificate.
Best for: Protecting and enforcing your name, logo and overall brand through federal registration.
Did the USPTO reject your trademark application or send you an “Office Action”? Did a generic online company or a lawyer with little trademark experience mishandle the application and treat you like a consumer, not a valued client?
We are real live trademark attorneys who will meet with you in person, by phone and email, and we will work together on your trademark applications and get you moving forward.
We understand that you are already out-of-pocket and our Trademark CPR® prices reflect that.
Best for: Pending trademark applications that need personalized and professional attention to bring them back on track.
Hourly packages are perfect for ongoing representation when no other package seems to fit your needs. These packages also work well for litigation matters.
You can purchase 5, 10 or 15 hours of legal services, or pay a monthly fee for unlimited monthly services. The more hours purchased, the lower the rate. Contact us for details.
