Launching a startup requires extreme organization, attention to detail and dedication. It also requires founders to decode complicated legalese, mountains of paperwork. Even in the earliest stages, you want to protect your company, your product and your ideas.
The easiest – and most recommended – way to accomplish all of this is to hire a lawyer early.
For founders, taking a proactive approach to the legal side of the business, whether it be intellectual property, partnership agreements or initial investments, will be beneficial and cheaper in the long run.
