Legal Guide for Startups in the U.S. 2022

This ultimate guide covers a wide range of legal intricacies that every startup founder needs to know before starting a business in the U.S.: from incorporation to stock issuance, intellectual property protection to employee stock option plans, fundraising to taxes – you name it, we’ve got it covered.

Legal Services

01

Incorporation

The two most common reasons to form a company in the U.S. are to fundraise with U.S. investors and to accept payments from U.S. clients (such as via Stripe). It is much harder to do these things with a non-U.S. company. We help you set up a C-Corp or LLC with ongoing legal support tailored to your needs

02

Financing

Whether you are fundraising with angel investors or professional VCs, we will guide you through negotiations and draft the required documents

03

Corporate Governance

We help you follow the required procedures for board and shareholders’ meetings and written consents and assist with state filings and disclosures

04

Team

Document your arrangements with the team and advisors, including ESOPs, FASTs, NDAs, carve-out plans, and internal policies

05

Intellectual Property

Ensure your main assets are protected by registering trademarks and copyrights, entering into license agreements, preparing for IP due diligence, and enforcing your rights in and out of court
