STRATEGIC LEGAL ADVICE FOR CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS, SMALL BUSINESSES, AND NONPROFITS.

Services

How can we help you succeed?

Business Formation

Starting something new?  We can help you set it up.  From partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations, to nonprofits, we can walk you through the process and help get you to your launch.

Nonprofit Law

It can be a challenge to navigate and comply with all of the legal requirements for tax-exempt organizations.  From corporate governance to lobbying, fundraising, organizational policies and procedures, reporting, grantmaking, and beyond, we can help take the worry out of compliance, so your nonprofit can focus on fulfilling its mission.

Corporate Law

You’ve got your business up and running, but there are ongoing corporate governance issues to deal with.  Need help with your corporate meeting minutes and resolutions, updating bylaws, or amending your operating agreement? 
We can provide it.

Business Transactions

Vendor contracts, independent contractor agreements, non-disclosure agreements, licensing agreements, partnership agreements – these are just a few common examples of contracts that you may need to operate and protect your organization or business.  We can help draft, review, and negotiate on your behalf and make sure you understand what you’re signing.

Special Projects

You’re working on exciting things and we want to help. Planning an event? We can review venue and vendor contracts, assess insurance needs, manage risk, and even help keep it sustainable. Conducting a social media contest? We can draft the official rules and help navigate the laws that regulate sweepstakes, contests, and lotteries. Producing a video?  We can help ensure that your content is properly licensed and cleared.

Outside General Counsel

Your organization or company is growing and has more consistent legal needs.  For a flat monthly fee, we can serve as your go-to outside general counsel and provide you with guidance to meet your day-to-day legal needs.

PRICING

We understand that nonprofits and small businesses operate on a tight budget.  Hourly legal fees can add up to an unexpectedly large legal bill, which can be problematic for budgeting and your bottom line.  That’s why we offer reasonable hourly rates, flat-rate quotes, and payment plans for our services.  Contact us to receive a quote today.

  • This past weekend, I visited the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitors Center in Church Creek, MD. What an incredible woman! In the face of great adversity, Harriet Tubman escaped slavery and risked her freedom and her life to save others.  This is just part of her amazing story and legacy. What are the things you dream of?  What legacy do you want to leave? As entrepreneurs, we undoubtedly have strength, patience, and passion to change our own lives - what are we doing to change the world?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Happy St. Paddy's Day, all!  One of my favorite podcasts is "How I Built This," which is about "innovators, entrepreneurs, idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built." At the end of the interview, the host, @guy.raz, always asks his guests (who are all successful entrepreneurs) this question: "how much of your success do you attribute to luck and how much do you attribute it to hard work?" How would you answer this question?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • We’ve all seen it, that “c” in a circle copyright symbol © in places such as books, websites, the end of movie credits, etc.  As an entrepreneur who creates things, you can use this symbol to put the world on notice that you’re the copyright owner of the original copyrightable work you created.  Once you’ve fixed the work in a tangible form (i.e., put it in writing, recorded it digitally), you can start using this copyright symbol.  While it’s not required, the notice does provide you some added protection when you “publish” or distribute the work to others by letting them know that you are claiming the copyright to the work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
