You don’t get excited about the legal mumbo-jumbo. But you know that dealing with the law is a necessary evil of running a creative business.
Having an attorney as a trusted member of your team can allow you to focus on what you do best—creating. You can pass those pesky legal tasks off to your attorney and know that she is watching your back. She’ll make sure that all your legal ducks are in a row and that you are making progress towards your big goals.
Because you don’t like surprises, I offer my services on a flat-fee basis. Below, I’ve noted some of the most common services that creative businesses like to pass off to me.
- Contract Review. I know that you don’t dream about reading, writing, and negotiating contracts, but I do. I’ll look over your contract and break down what is out of the ordinary, where issues could arise, and steps that can be taken to reduce your risks. I’ll also edit the contract so that it meets your needs. By the end, you’ll be able to determine if signing the contract will help you achieve your goals. This service is $315 for the first page and $225 for each additional page.
- Contract Drafting. Running a creative business involves lots of contracts and having a contract that you know and understand and can present to clients can be a huge asset. I draft contracts for clients starting at $900.
- Trademark Applications and Renewals. Having an attorney help you draft your trademark application can make the difference between having an enforceable trademark and an expensive piece of paper. I submit client’s USPTO trademark applications starting at $1500. Have a trademark that you need to renew? I can help with that process starting at $950.
- Business Formation. Many creative businesses choose to make the switch from sole proprietorships/partnerships into LLCs/corporations. I can help advise you on the right entity type for your business and help you with forming your corporation or LLC starting at $1700.
