Startup Legal Services

Start your business with confidence

Entrepreneurs usually have a business plan and a budget. All our packages come with a transparent flat-fee pricing so you can plan ahead. We combine market best practices and efficient processes with personal advice to make legal a worry of the past for new founders.

How we work

Best-in-class standard, efficient processes, personal support

We’ve created a high-quality standard for legal templates to ensure best-in-class outputs for our customers. Combined with tailored personal support by our experts, we deliver legal services that make a difference.

Christian MeisserCEO & Legal Counsel at LEXR
Best-in-class standard

For our best-in-class standard templates, we take existing documents from at least 5 different sources and create a derived version with modular options.

The draft standard is then reviewed by 5+ legal professionals and first tested with beta clients.

After launch, the standard is continuously improved and adjusted to changes in law.

Efficient processes

To help you solve legal challenges fast, we leverage technology and optimise processes. In addition, we create supporting material in form of guides and FAQs for you to have all information you need easily accessible.

Personal, tailored support

While we believe in the power of technology and high quality document standards, dedicated personal contact and tailoring to your specific needs is equally important for all our projects.
