Start a Business

You’ve got a great idea that you want to take to market but, legally speaking, you’re not sure where to start. With so many potential pitfalls you’ll want legal advice for starting a business.

Affordable Small Business Startup Legal Advice

You can spend hours googling the various laws and regulations that might apply to your business or you can get affordable legal advice for starting a business from Supply Law. Your time is valuable. Supply Law can provide you with the small business startup legal advice you need so you can go back to acquiring new clients and building your brand.

Do I need a lawyer to start a business?

Being your own boss is a rewarding experience but starting a new business always involves a degree of risk. Receiving legal advice when starting a business helps protect the countless hours and resources you’ll be investing. Doing the necessary legal due diligence from the onset also increases the likelihood that someone will want to buy your business in the future (and the price they’re willing to pay). The steps you take now will pay dividends down the road. Save money and minimize risk by setting yourself up for success from the start.

* As with all legal matters, pricing will ultimately depend on the complexity of the situation and the time a lawyer spends working on a file. All references to pricing and flat rate fees reflect the standard rate in usual circumstances. In the event the complexity or time spent working on a file exceeds usual circumstances Supply Law reserves the right to provide you with a revised estimate and you may choose to accept the new estimate and continue with work or terminate the retainer agreement and only pay for those services already rendered.
