From commercial leases to permits, your attorney ensures you don’t face any legal setbacks along the way.

Finding the Right Attorney & How They Can Help 

The Right Fit

While you may have a few lawyers in your social network, you should choose an attorney who specializes in working with startups. If possible, find one with expertise in your industry, whether that’s tech or retail. You also want to get along well with whomever you choose, as you will be working closely with this person.

What They Do
