Startup Lawyers

Legal services tailored to your startup

As a founder, you’ve made a critical decision to pursue a vision, and having your legals sorted from the outset prevents unnecessary issues emerging later on.

When your idea begins to gain investor interest, market activity, and media presence you are likely to see your entity scale up and enter an exciting and turbulent high-growth stage. At that point you’ll want to ensure that the legal arrangements underpinning and protecting your startup are adequately in place.

Our startup lawyers understand the unique culture and structure of startups and VCs, and possess familiarity with the technology space.

We tailor our offering for startups to the stage of growth your business is at. 

Services include:

  • Business / corporate structuring
  • Capital raising issues: from small angels to VC multi series’ to employee vestment to crowdfunding
  • Term sheets
  • Employee contracts, HR packs, contractors, internships
  • Trademarking, IP issues, licensing
  • Digital law – privacy, T&Cs
  • Technology issues
  • Migration – visas to bring international talent to Australia

We get it: launching a business is stressful. Let us deal with the legals, so that you can continue perfecting your big idea and getting it to market.

We recently engaged OpenLegal. The team were extremely friendly and energetic, took the time to understand my business, were responsive, and overall it was a very smooth speedy process. Would recommend OpenLegal to those businesses seeking cost-effective quick expert advice from a team of personable skilled lawyers.
