Startup Lawyer Toronto

Let a lawyer take care of the legal structure of your startup while you focus on your business growth, which is crucial at this stage.

Get an experienced Toronto Startup Lawyer to review the following:

  • Business Formations
  • Contracts
  • Technology and Privacy
  • Private Equity and Finance

Your startup lawyer will prepare your incorporation and corporate records.  We can help you incorporate Federally or Provincially by filing articles of incorporation. We will then prepare your corporate records and elect your directors, appoint officers and issue shares. The founders of your startup must agree to a shareholders agreement outlining the governance of your Company and other rights and restrictions.

Depending on your wishes, it is also important to transfer ownership of the intellectual property from the persons who worked on any intellectual property matters to your Company after it has been incorporated.

Book an appointment with a startup lawyer in Toronto now to consult on the benefits on incorporating and other options relating to the legal structure of your business. There is more than one option. Let’s get creative. With an incorporation, you could limit liability, grow, raise funds, separate legal entities and possibly benefit from tax advantages.  Contact law@ranacharif.ca or call +1 438 350 4236 to speak with a Toronto startup lawyer.

Hiring staff or outsourcing work to contractors will require you to ensure that your legal agreements with these parties protect your rights in case any issues arise throughout the performance of your contract (which is more common than you may think). I can also prepare Employee Stock Option Plans (ESOP) to incentivize potential early employees and contractors. As an experienced Toronto business lawyer, I will identify for you and customize any standard business contracts for your business. I will also review any contract that you are presented with to ensure that you are on the safe side, on the long term.

A few examples of the startup business law agreements that we draft:

  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Partnership Agreements
  • Joint Venture Agreements
  • Employee Compensation Plans
  • Vesting Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Licensing Agreements
  • Distribution Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Website and App Terms of Use
  • Privacy Policies
  • Website Development Agreements
  • Anti-Spam Compliance
  • Private Equity and Subscriptions
  • Share Purchases and Sales
  • Asset Purchases and Sales
  • Lending and Financing

As you define your image and your brand, it is equally important to protect your business’s identity by registering copyright of trademarks as you become noticed in the market, which incentivizes competitors to copy your style. You want to be able claim authority over a particular style, logo, brand and identity. Your uniqueness and hard work deserves this security.
