startup lawyers

It seems like everyone you meet these days has founded a startup, works at a startup, or wants to sell you a package for startups. Or maybe we spend too much time hanging out at tech incubators?

A typical engagement with a Southeast Asian startup involves helping the business set up in, or flip to, Singapore. We then put in place governance documents such as a constitution, shareholders’ agreement and founder vesting documents.

Early on, we help Singapore startups get investment ready, taking care of the legal basics that investors expect to see covered. As your business grows, we also advise on company or group structuring, contractor arrangements and employee share incentive schemes.

We understand that cash is tight, yet there are endless issues to think about. To help out, we’ve developed free legal templates which you can use to cover the basics when you are just starting out. These tools are also a great learning resource.

Our team has learnt a massive amount about tech business over the years. Our startup clients get the benefit of that experience as part of the package, whether we are on the clock or catching up over a coffee.
