better legal services
Incorporation, employment, commercial agreements, raising capital — I take care of the fine legal bits, for both for- and non-profits.
Deal with disputes
Handling conflicts of interest. Dealing with difficult shareholders or members. Preparing strongly worded letters. We’ll make sure legal problems are addressed effectively.
Is your company considering a leap to the public markets? I’ll handle the roadmap, the legal paper, and setting your executive team up for success.
Don’t like hourly rates? Me neither.
Flat-fee engagements and creative fee models mean better aligned expectations and less surprises on invoices.
