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.

Adnan was invaluable in helping us through our various acquisitions as fast a paced growth Fintech company. Despite being in a unique industry, Adnan demonstrated his expertise time and time again by supporting us through difficult negotiations, ensuring our interest were protected at all times, and ensuring the deals were completed in a cordial and timely manner. On top of all of that, we needed regular support with various internal corporate matters, all of which Adnan handled with comfort and ease. Adnan is also very well connected in the industry and was readily able to link us with the necessary experts we needed to handle the various legal matters. Most of all, what impressed me the most, is Adnan’s commitment and dedication and the late hours he spent ensuring he was always available at the critical times to address any issues that came up. - S.K.

I am certainly grateful for Jill McCartney and Madeline McKinnon for all the time they spent on the class action for my and many others issue. People like me do not understand all the legal procedures and get impatient but the team was there to answer any questions or concerns no matter how many times I called or e-mailed and encouraged me to do so . In the end Jill made sure I totally understood the decisions.  Thank you so much for caring. Would recommend this firm anytime. - F.A.

I am sincerely grateful to Leanne Kuchynski for representing my wife and I in what we considered to be an unprecedented situation. Leanne's compassion, practical advice, openness to feedback, brilliant strategic thinking and outstanding work ethic led to the most optimal outcome while maintaining a superior human experience. Despite the harsh realities of the situation, I felt extremely comfortable that our best interest was Leanne's utmost priority and was confident in her demonstrated ability. She was professional and exceptionally thorough, yet remained remarkably caring.

I use to have a somewhat cautious disposition towards lawyers based on past experiences; however, Leanne completely restored my faith in the profession and earned my unquestionable loyalty for all future legal needs. - S.M.
