Are you looking for a startup lawyer to guide you through the legalities of setting up a business? Look no further, LegalVision’s lawyers specialise in assisting startup founders and co-founders with startup-related legal advice.

Finding a startup lawyer who understands high-growth tech businesses can be difficult. Most business lawyers operate in the small business space, which is quite different to the startup space. LegalVision is a commercial law firm and our startup lawyers have assisted many tech startups to incorporate, to create a shareholding structure, to bring on investors and to develop an IP protection strategy.

LegalVision is a startup law firm that operates on fixed-fees, rather than an hourly rate or retainer. This provides startup founders with price certainty and transparency over legal fees. We provide legal services for startups across Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Our specialist startup team and corporate lawyers can assist with a range of startup law matters. This includes drafting legal documents and term sheets, resolving an employment law matter and capital raising.

Frequently Asked Questions about Startup Lawyers

Here are some commonly asked questions from startup founders:

Startup lawyers specialise in assisting startups with all aspects of starting and scaling a high-growth business. Startup lawyers may also work with investors such as venture capital funds and angel investors with the capital raising process. Experienced lawyers will understand the specific needs facing startups compared to traditional businesses, which include employee share schemes, option pools startup structuring and access to funding.

Many startups are hesitant to hire a lawyer due to the cost. However, law firms that specialise in assisting startups are likely to offer cost-effective assistance including fixed-fee packages or free legal templates. The best time to hire a startup lawyer is during the initial incorporation stage of the business, where receiving legal advice on the business structure will be key to planning for its growth.

A specialist startup lawyer will understand that startups are likely to be bootstrapping and have limited cash flow. Consequently, law firms that specialise in startups will offer fixed-fees to provide full transparency and certainty over legal costs. LegalVision’s startup lawyers, through our LVConnect legal advice membership, charge from $250 per project (drafting a privacy policy).

Researching online is a good way to find the best startup lawyers. If you are looking for help with capital raising, researching on legal news websites such as Lawyers Weekly for deal announcements can indicate a firm’s experience in this area. Law firms that specialise in startups will also win awards in startup-related media (such as LinkedIn Top Startups or the Australian Financial Review Fast 100).
