Behind Every Successful Startup Is An Innovative Business Attorney

Every startup needs a business attorney, period. But not all business attorneys are equal. What sets us apart is our diligence, innovation, and dedication to meeting the needs of our clients.

 At K&A, our attorneys are not simply lawyers in the traditional sense. We are business advisors, counsellors, that hand on the shoulder providing support, and that honest eye evaluating transactions and ventures. From startup to exit plan, we are there to help every step of the way.

Our Client’s Success, Is Our Success.

From day one, during the initial consultation, we learn the ins & outs of your business. We realize that at the startup level, businesses are in their most vulnerable state. Our team works closely with startups on all aspects of their operations, whether its editing a pitch deck, negotiating a deal, or securing funding; we tirelessly find ways to add value to your business. Our client’s success, is our success.  

If you have a question, or need advice – just pick up the phone! Our team provides strategy sessions, general counsel, and offer innovative solutions to the most complicated problems. At K&A, our client’s don’t worry about billable hours or being nickel & dimed. We are driven by one goal – helping your dreams become a reality

Contracts & Agreements

Put It In Writing!

One of the worse (and most common) mistakes an entrepreneur or startup can make is relying on a handshake, a promise, or a verbal understanding. Contracts and Agreements memorialize the terms of a relationship or transaction, and are essential in ensuring the parties receive the benefit of their bargain. Our experienced attorneys assist clients in the drafting, negotiation and review of contracts and agreements. Below are a few of the agreements that we assist clients with:

  • Partnership Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements

We Show You The Money!

Whether you are in the early stages, developing a prototype to bring to market, hiring employees, or expanding your product line – proper capitalization is the life blood of your business. Securing funding and financing can be the difference between vibrant operations and closing shop. We assist startups in securing the finances they need to operate, grow, and thrive.

Some of the funding services we assist with are:

  • Angel Round Funding
  • Crowd Sourced Funding (Equity & Debt)
  • Venture Capital Funding
  • Private Placement Offerings

Intellectual Property Protection

You Have A Great Idea, Protect It!

Brand protection is a major concern for businesses. The company name, logo, and slogan is what identifies the business and its products. For many start-ups, intellectual property is the most valuable company asset. IP may include your product, method, or the company identity. We advise clients on the strategic use of patents, trademarks, and copyrights to ensure that their most valuable assets are protected.

Our Intellectual Property Services include:

  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Copyrights
  • Trade Secrets
  • Licensing
  • Branding & Advertising
  • IP Portfolio Management
  • Infringement Prosecution & Defense
  • Corporate Style & Branding Guides
  • Acquisition

We understand that and offer competitive flat-fee pricing for every business service we provide. In addition, we offer all-inclusive packages through our N-House service to ensure that all your businesses legal needs are met.
