You may be going through a difficult process with your startup and asked yourself some of the questions we answer below. At The Startup CFO we work to give you solve the problems that arise in the legal management of your startup

Startups have certain peculiarities due to their financing (usually funded by VCs) which implies that the legal relationship between the startup and its partners is particular. A well-known lawyer can be a very good professional, but without the necessary knowledge to talk about a financing round

We always recommend the preparation and review of all contractual documents by an attorney. Convertible loans, shareholders’ agreements, Phantom Shares plans are very important documents that affect the equity of your company, which must not be put at stake

As we know, the hiring of an agency is one of the first steps of any entrepreneur. However, in general, they do not provide the services that we offer at a legal level

We believe in a long-term relationship between an entrepreneur and our lawyers. The knowledge of the entire history of the company and the knowledge of the partners saves the CEO time and allows him to delegate to his trusted person

Why choose a lawyer specialized in Startups?

Startups have certain peculiarities due to their financing (usually funded by VCs) which implies that the legal relationship between the startup and its partners is particular. A well-known lawyer can be a very good professional, but without the necessary knowledge to talk about a financing round

And my agency can't take care of these steps?

As we know, the hiring of an agency is one of the first steps of any entrepreneur. However, in general, they do not provide the services that we offer at a legal level

Would you like to have a long term relationship with your lawyer?
