ATAC LAW is experienced in advising startup companies. We understand your needs as a startup since we have experience starting our own companies and facing the same challenges of raising money, keeping costs low, finding the right people, and structuring compensation to keep founders motivated. We understand your business.

When forming your company, there are a number of important legal issues to address including whether to form a partnership or corporation, or do business under your own name. There are significant advantages and drawbacks to each which we would be happy to advise you on. Employment contracts and founder compensation is another area of concern. If not done correctly, founders can lose control of their company. In addition we can do all other business services to help you grow your company and protect your most valuable assets including raising money, and intellectual property protection.

Some of the services we provide are:

  • Drafting the standard agreements, contracts and documents required to get your business up and running
  • Advice on your business structure (proprietorship, partnership, corporation)
  • Assistance with incorporation
  • Advice on non-disclosure agreements
  • Advice on intellectual property matters including copyrights, patents and licenses
  • Advice on how to find and attract investors to your company
  • Advice and preparation of financing documents
  • Advice on securities laws
  • Advice on employment policies, procedures and agreements
  • Guidance on early stage tax considerations and issues
  • Advice on corporate governance matters
  • Setting up contracts with key suppliers or buyers
