Do you know how to incorporate a company?
Do you whether a private company or a limited liability company is more suited for a startup?
Do you know how to acquire control without acquiring shares?
About a month back, a couple of clients had come to me and briefed me about an application they are developing. They wanted to know how to best protect their application before going for the trial phase. I advised them accordingly on the IP aspects and helped them with their proposal and MoU for their trial run. Then they left and I forgot about them.
Last week, one of them reached out to me again regarding incorporating their startup. They were employed professionals. So I asked for their employment agreements and as suspected they could not incorporate a company without risking their employment and the product itself. There was a way out with this respect, so I advised them accordingly.
Then there was also the question of capital for incorporating a company. But since they wanted the least financial risk possible, a limited liability company seemed to be the best option for them.
They wanted me to help them incorporate the company and do all the related work. Now, the problem I presently face is that although I have worked on Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association as an intern, I have never quite incorporated an LLP myself. So I am hesitant to take up a paying client for lack of knowledge and hands-on experience.
This is a common situation for most lawyers. They have clients coming in from areas of life with different legal issues and problems. Now, advising them might be easier than doing the necessary paperwork.
But where does one gain the knowledge of companies laws and other laws related to a company?
These clients came to me for advice and kept coming back with more work for their product and company. This could continue in the near future. Therefore, it has to be done right as they could be recurring clients.
