The Legal INCubator:
We’re business attorneys that provide legal fuel for startups, working side-by-side with entrepreneurs to start, fund, grow and exit companies. Having worked with thousands of startups, we’ve identified a significant gap in traditional startup accelerators and incubators – top quality legal strategy, support and guidance. That’s where we come in.
Startups need good legal help in order to be successful. So, as an extension of our law firm, we developed the Legal INCubator to guide and empower entrepreneurs along their startup journeys. Our workshops, webinars, resources and tools dig into the details and issues that really matter, so that entrepreneurs can accelerate and advance their startups.
