Legal advice is something entrepreneurs don’t always account for. Legal plays a crucial role in the success of businesses, but many small business owners avoid seeking assistance until issues begin to arise and it’s already too late.

A lawyer can help you understand the risks your business could face in the down the line, as well as help set you up for future growth. Although helpful, their advice definitely isn’t easy on your wallet. 

Luckily for you, our new partner in the Entrepreneurs Club, Law Scout, makes accessing legal services fast, convenient, and budget-friendly to all our members. With upfront fixed pricing, they connect entrepreneurs to experienced lawyers who will answer their questions, ensure their corporation aligns with their long-term goals, and maximize the tax benefits of incorporating. 

Here’s why it’s so important to set your business up right:Law Scout Logo

1. You’ll be one step ahead 

Law Scout can help you with:

  • Incorporating a business
  • Trademarks
  • Employment contracts and non-disclosure agreements
  • Shareholder and partnership agreements
  • Terms of Use and Privacy policy for a website

2. You’ll mitigate risk

No matter the size of your business, you invest your life into making it work. Things happen – make sure you’re protecting yourself. Larger businesses might keep a lawyer on retainer for incidentals, but this isn’t necessarily the best solution for small businesses. Paying per project ends up saving you a lot of time and money.

3. You’ll save yourself the headache of dealing with legal jargon 

Getting legal advice is important because there are a lot of bases to cover and it leads to confusion if you aren’t trained on what you’re looking at. Law Scout can help you understand your options and help you work through the process to make the best decision. Get peace of mind knowing you did it right with proper and affordable legal assistance.

4. You’ll save valuable time 

Think of the long-term value your business will gain by having access to legal advice when you need it. Give Law Scout a heads up of what’s going on in your business and they will give you the confidence needed to take your business to the next level.

Law Scout has access to a team of small business lawyers across Ontario, Alberta and BC. You’ll no longer have to stress about going back and forth between the lawyer’s office and having long discussions billed by the hour. Enjoy this easy, fast, and affordable small business legal solution.
