 Intellectual Property Protection

We provide comprehensive consultation and review of startup business models under copyright laws, trademark laws, trade secret laws, patent laws, contracts, and other legal and business options.

Contract Consultation, Negotiation, and Drafting for Startups

Our practice consults startups on standard and industry-specific contracts, including drafting, reviewing, and negotiating agreements with website developers, designers, marketing consultants, SEO companies, vendor agreements and other third parties a startup or technology enterprise may work with at various stages. 

We also provide custom Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA, Confidentiality Agreement) to help protect clients’ intellectual property, such as copyrights, trademarks, designs, logos, ideas, and other vital proprietary assets, during “discussion periods” with potential investors and advise founders and entrepreneurs on discussions of their ideas with outside parties without unnecessarily disclosing confidential information.

Popular agreements:

Term Sheets

Founders Agreements 

Share Subscription Agreements 

Shareholders Agreements

Disclosure Agreements 

Seed round funding Agreements

E-commerce Agreements

Customized Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement

There are many “free” non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements online. Do not rely on these forms to protect confidential information. After a confidential discussion with our startup clients, we may draft a customized confidentiality agreement and consult CEOs and founders on how to discuss the business with investors and other third parties on a need-to-know basis and protect sensitive business information.
