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.
During the tumultuous course of running a business, you will face multiple difficult choices that may spell the difference between success and bankruptcy. Consider conducting a cost-benefit analysis to balance the complexity of your legal needs against the costs of hiring professional help.
Every penny counts for startups and small businesses, but some companies try to save money by neglecting to draw up contracts or to seek legal advice. This is penny wise and pound foolish. In the long run, your attempt at savings can cost your company, both in the event of legal action down the road and in lost opportunities.
