Legal Services



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



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