By On Oct 02, 2018 Form Template
Recently, there has been an explosion of websites and services geared toward helping people sort out their legal issues themselves. Many of these sites offer these legal forms, documents and templates for a flat or monthly fee (as opposed to expensive hourly rates for a lawyer), while others offer their forms free of charge. The gist is simple. You answer a few basic questions, such as the parties’ names, the specifics of the contract and a few others, and the site creates a document for you based on the answers you’ve provided.
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.
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.
