The Perfect Solution for Startups

Startup legal needs are super spikey–that means, sometimes you need it, and the rest of the time, you’re in build mode; having a full time general counsel can therefore be hard to justify.

So how do you work with a lawyer who is not incentivized to charge by the hour; who is positioned to be an entrenched and systems-minded player; who can engage in a more flexible way?

Legal and Ops answers this question with its fixed price, turnaround-time guaranteed a la carte & unlimited menu of everyday startup legal needs.

Who we are

At Legal and Ops, we provide the kinds of generalized legal support that serve as a startup’s go-to: From corporate governance, to contracts and redlines, to legal operations, we’re your first stop for the day to day stuff, and for sourcing the best specialist solution for everything else. With our operational focus, we prioritize your experience as a consumer, by employing sensible processes, modern tools, and specialized providers, all to give you predictable pricing and turnaround times.

For recurring tasks, including high volumes of contract negotiation, we source and/or manage the right stack of tools and providers to minimize the costs and time investments of contract closing.

How We’re Different From Traditional Law Firms

Most law firms only bill by the hour, and make no promises about when you’ll get work back; let alone use modern technology to create a customer-centric experience.

Try an alternative to BigLaw, or to self-servicing, with our structured and operations-oriented approach to startup law.

Why Choose Us?

An Alternative to Big Law: We offer more than just legal services – we provide a partnership that’s built for B2B SaaS companies that want a new way to work with lawyers. While BigLaw firms often don’t have time for earlier companies that don’t make them money, and no incentive to improve their efficiency or customer experience, self-service can, on the other hand, be painful and scary. Legal and Ops offers the perfect sweet spot that focuses on your profile, leverages modern tools, and offers the kinds of promises you’d expect from any other business. Here's why we stand out from the rest:

If you’re in a rush, enjoy expedited 1-day turnaround time. Plus, our transparent pricing ensures that you know exactly what to expect, with no surprises along the way.

Expertise and Access: With a team of post-BigLaw attorneys, we offer top-notch legal expertise at competitive rates. Plus, if there's something we're not experts in, we'll connect you with someone who is – free of charge. With Legal and Ops, you can trust that you're in good hands every step of the way.

When you choose Legal and Ops, you're not just getting legal services – you're getting a trusted partner committed to delivering you a great experience consuming legal.

Get started by contacting us today

James at CommandBar called us a human API into legal.  Joe at Office Hours said our experience as attorneys and operators was exactly what they needed for compliance and legal operations issues. 

As lawyers who are also builders, we understand you need risk-weighted, practical advice; and as a small shop, every client experience matters just as much to us as it does to you.
