The Tech Startup scene is all the rage in many cities in the United States and outside the United States. Due to the many transactional documents and legal issues, It is imperative that any entrepreneur engage counsel who can provide a range of legal services to the new technology-based companies.
Brent A. Levison P.A. stresses the importance and the need for attorneys to be able to provide counsel to entrepreneurs in order to navigate the myriad of legal issues and develop business strategy challenges that startups face. In addition, proper counsel should provide the entrepreneur with hands-on experience with intellectual property, corporate, contract, tax, and labor and employment issues.
Startups often have to make legal decisions early on that will shape their businesses for years to come. An early-stage company must, for example, set up an initial corporate structure, develop a strategy for protecting its intellectual property, and shape the contours of its relationship with its employees.
The real value added by lawyers at the pre-financing stage is in helping clients surface and deal with legal issues that will impact the shape of their businesses much later. Brent A. Levison recommends an attorney who will focus on understanding clients’ needs, identifying issues, and recommending courses of action.
