One-Stop Start-Up is full-service, affordable legal help for venture capital firms investing in early stage companies, growing them and selling them—or carrying forward other possibilities—in 5 to 7 years. In the critical early stages One-Stop Start-Up protects the value of your investment down the road by making sure the proper corporate and IP agreements are in place for the start-up.
We offer the full service and expertise of a big firm, but offer reasonable legal fees.
One-Stop Start-Up brings together all the legal services you need from evaluation of IP to needed IP agreements to corporate securities agreements plus a wide range of technical expertise such as:
The One-Stop Start-Up team has big firm experience but without big firm overhead so we can significantly reduce your fees. By comparison a big firm may charge up to $800 an hour while our fees show a reduction of at least 30 percent or more.
Attorneys practicing in the fields of corporate, IP, licensing and finance have joined forces to provide great, seamless service. Whether it’s complex licensing work, organizational/founders work, or IP work, One-Stop Start-Up offers the best in several legal fields designed to complete the task of getting that Start-Up up and running without glitches or hitches.
Prior to entering the market place you need to identify any competitive barrier by conducting an onerous Freedom To Operate. That is expense. It is typically huge. Typically, anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. With the One-Stop Start-Up group, FTO fees run from $10,000 to $30,000, depending on the size of the portfolio.
The One-Stop Start-Up team has a completely different approach to FTO. Using a revolutionary FTO tool developed by the Schwegman Lundberg patent firm, we generate an interactive and re-usable claim chart that’s easy for all stake-holders, including non-lawyers, to understand providing a claim-level view of entire patent landscape quickly spotting both the dangers and opportunities. If there are changes in the products design you don’t start back at square one; a few simple clicks lets you see design-around solutions in real time.
Our corporate and licensing services designed to put the start-up company together are equally innovative and cost-effective.
Experienced corporate attorneys assist venture capital firms and their portfolio companies with all their corporate matters including capital structuring, initial founders agreements, equity financings, and M&A activities. We use the same approach from start-up to liquidity – by focusing on high quality services and partner-level personal attention at reasonable rates.
