As a startup, you need more than a corporate lawyer. You need a lawyer who understands the unique legal challenges you face—particularly if you're in the technology industry. We provide strategic advice to emerging and growth-stage companies, keeping in mind the specific needs and growth cycle of startups. We understand the need for multiple rounds of financing in early stages and we know the importance of potential exit strategies for founders.
We also recognize that startups face budget and time constraints. We offer comprehensive legal startup packages that are designed to get you up and running with a solid corporate structure and the legal documents you'll need to protect your intellectual property and become investor-ready—all at a fraction of the cost of traditional law firms. By leveraging technology to streamline our procedures, we can offer you seamless, high quality service when and where you need it. You can sign documents on the go and access your company's key documents remotely, saving you from making multiple trips to your lawyer's office (unless you just want to come hang out).
Here are some of the things we can do for you:
Business structuring and organization, including BC or federal incorporations and extra-provincial registrations, if needed
Getting (and keeping) founders on the same page by negotiating and drafting shareholders' agreements and reverse vesting agreements
Protecting your intellectual property by preparing IP assignments, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, and software licensing agreements
Helping you attract and keep top talent by implementing stock option plans and drafting stock option agreements, employment agreements, and independent contractor agreements
Helping you develop a strategic financing plan and preparing documentation needed for capital raises, whether through equity or debt
