business LAWYERS invested in you

We take your business as seriously as you do.

Startups and Entrepreneurship

The early stages of a startup company are fast-paced, exciting, and sometimes chaotic. There are almost always more questions than answers. As the founder of a new company, you’re likely working with limited resources and making daily, even hourly, decisions on where to allocate those finite dollars.

As a savvy entrepreneur, you have recognized early on that a solid legal foundation is a crucial component of your startup’s business plan. You know there’s more to it than printing cookie-cutter legal document forms from a website, but the last thing you want to worry about is fees tied to unexpected “billable hours” from the law firm.

Flat-fee Legal Services for Startups

To help entrepreneurs like you manage cash flow in Year 1, obtain high-quality legal documents, and secure expert counsel without any budget surprises down the road, Dalton & Tomich offers certain services on a flat-fee basis (fixed sum), rather than billing on an hourly basis.

Services pertaining to incorporation/organization of a company, obtaining an employer identification number, drafting the bylaws and operating agreement, are all services that can be provided on a flat-fee basis.

Other basic documents available at a flat-rate include:

  • Non-Disclosure Agreement
  • Employment Agreement
  • Independent Contractor Agreement
  • Master Service Agreement
  • Terms of Use
  • License Agreement
  • Basic Lease
  • Privacy Policy
  • Social Media Policy
