What does a startup lawyer do?

It goes without saying that there will be legal considerations when starting a business, and it’s critical to be working with a lawyer who’s familiar with what needs to be in place. Startup lawyers have extensive experience in the legal requirements of establishing your business, covering everything from corporate formation, intellectual property and funding.


Why do I need a startup lawyer?

Even if you’re the best of friends with your co-founder, disputes are inevitable. Airtight agreements drafted and reviewed by an expert startup lawyer will always serve as a safeguard if things take a turn for the worst.

Our network startup lawyers can relate to entrepreneurs and are very experienced in handling these tasks.



What does it cost to hire a startup lawyer?

The last thing you want to do as a new business owner is spend thousands on legal fees. With limited capital, it’s hard to justify a large legal expense when there are tech, product and marketing expenses.

Our startup lawyers all work on fixed-fees to ensure pricing is transparent and you always know what you’re getting. When you submit a quote with LawPath we’ll source fixed-price quotes from our network to ensure you can find the right lawyer at a price you can afford.



What will they provide?

A startup lawyer will provide you with the essential legal infrastructure every business needs to get started. Depending on your structure and needs this could include drafting a shareholders agreement, all the way through to protecting your IP and reviewing a commercial lease.

The startup lawyers on our network know the right questions to ask to ensure your business avoids any future legal hassles.

Discover lawyers who have worked at top-tier firms and ASX 200 companies.
