Emerging businesses are unique entities that have unique needs. Over the years, we have provided advice and counsel to numerous clients that have grown from garage businesses to industry leaders. We understand the challenges a start-up company faces when developing and growing its ideas into a viable business. We often work with entrepreneurs to refine their intellectual property, develop a long-term IP strategy, and position their IP in order to provide the maximum value to their company.
Often, new businesses are based on a single idea, product, or differentiating factor, referred to within the community as their “secret sauce.” We work with founders to adequately protect their “secret sauce’” within the boundaries of their business objectives.
Our attorneys bring business acumen and entrepreneurial thinking to our work with emerging businesses, often operating as business advisors as well as legal counselors. We work with clients to provide cost-effective solutions that will help them to rapidly meet their business objectives. For many start-ups, we also provide assistance with non-compete agreements, employment agreements, licensing agreements, and other fundamental agreements that allow the business to develop. Our approach offers clients creativity and flexibility as their needs evolve.
