Startup Tool Kits
Startup toolkits are designed to give early stage companies a solid legal foundation at a reasonable and predictable cost. They also provide a menu of services so each client can pick and choose the services it needs.
Startup tool kits are not for every startup, but may be appropriate for your startup if the provisions you want included fall into one of a handful of options that we frequently see. They are not for startups requiring a significant amount of customized drafting, such as preferred or non-pro-rata distributions in a limited liability company agreement, or those requiring contracts with significant negotiation. If you’d like to learn more about startup tool kits please review the rest of this page and give us a call.
