Startup Toolkits

Our Startup Toolkits are a collection of frequently-used services for early-stage growth companies, provided on a flat fee basis. Each client can pick and choose the services it needs.

Startup Toolkits 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.
