Startups in Silicon Valley raising their first round of funding can spend upwards of $80,000 on legal fees, according to VentureBeat. Neither the entrepreneur nor the investor wants to see that kind of dough diverted from product development and marketing to lawyers. Enter iDisclose, co-founded by Georgia Quinn. “It takes a TurboTax-like approach, enabling entrepreneurs to do 80% of the work using an online tool that walks you through every step of writing legal agreements with investors,” Quinn says. You still, however, need a lawyer to review the document.
Some websites help you find vetted lawyers who will undertake specific legal projects for a flat fee, which can include drawing up a contract or acting as general counsel for a certain number of hours per month. Other websites allow entrepreneurs to draft contracts that attorneys then review or to prepare and manage intellectual property. Still other websites provide diagnostic tools that identify gaps in legal coverage that open businesses to risk.
So which is the right choice for you? If you’re like most entrepreneurs starting out, you don’t have capital to burn, so the choice might already be made for you. However, if you’re on the fence, here are some pros and cons to implementing customizable legal documents and templates that should help you make a decision.
