Entrepreneurs launching a startup business or growing an early stage business usually have limited resources in terms of money and key people.  By necessity corners are cut, and although startups must be aware of their legal budgets, it is critical that certain legal matters be dealt with appropriately at an early stage to prevent serious issues as the business grows. That's where our startup lawyers can help.

At Siskinds, our startup business lawyers have the years of experience to know what ‘must’ be done and what can be deferred. We use the dollars the entrepreneur has available to provide the legal services important to early stage businesses at a cost effective price.

A Startup Law Firm You Can Rely On

As a startup business you will need advice on structuring, incorporating, shareholders’ agreements, funding options (including advice with respect to what government funding may be available), employment agreements and documenting the financing rounds.

Siskinds startup attorneys will provide you with advice that comes from experience- within the budget of the entrepreneur. It is important that the legal advice be proactive, based on experience and delivered promptly. At Siskinds we feel we can best add value by becoming a trusted member of your team.

We also provide representation in a number of areas of corporate law, including commercial litigation and business law. Contact a Siskinds startup lawyer today.

I felt really safe knowing you [Daniel Hynes] were looking after my interests. I felt like you had my back. You were very professional, kind and caring, and I was very happy with how you handled everything.  –G.A.

Siskinds is a well known law firm that delivers results! I had a challenging issue that Dagmara Wozniak met head on with creative and solution based ideas. She provided a solution in a short amount of time and I would highly recommend her! No one likes legal issues and yet they happen. If you need results ... call Siskinds. - S.F.

Siskinds was very good when I needed them! We were going through a very difficult time. Mr. [Jim] Virtue and Siskinds were very helpful. I had suffered an injury, and during the proceedings my husband was diagnosed with cancer. It was a very overwhelming period for us. Siskinds was very understanding and we were appreciative of the outcome. - S.M.
