After all the blood, sweat and tears you put into building your business, why fall into unnecessary legal issues and risk losing it all?
Don’t work 18-hours a day, give up your weekends and sacrifice your sleep just for someone to come along and take what you’ve built away from you.
Avoid the stress.
Guard your assets with an investment that will safeguard you for years to come!
You need the cover. Otherwise you could lose it all – just because you didn’t take the time to put in the appropriate legal protection.
Startup life is exciting, but it can also be cruel.
You have an idea that you believe will change the world. You spend months devoting your time, money and energy at the expense of your sleep, social life, and sanity.
If you have a family, you probably haven’t spent time with them for a while.
You tell yourself that it’s all worth it.
And it could be.
You need to legally protect your business.
If you’re like most new businesses, you might be unaware of your legal obligations.
We get it. You’re busy building.
Sales, marketing, product offering, recruitment, premises, delivery, development, management, customer service, networking, PR and finance is enough work for 10 people… ooops. There’s just you.
So if someone was to say: ‘You need to get your legal contracts sorted’, we can understand why you’d feel overwhelmed and move into procrastination mode.
After all, you might think:
“No-one will even bother taking me to court till I’m crazy successful!”
– and then of course… you’ll be rich enough to afford Facebook’s legal team.
Bad idea. Very bad idea.
Just look at the creation of Facebook. You’ve probably seen “The Social Network”.
Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss accused Zuckerberg of stealing their idea for a social network while the three of them were students at Harvard University. We all know Zuckerberg, but it took a film for us to know of the Winklevoss twins.
What followed was a series of accusations, investigations and lawsuits.
Protect your startup and ensure it gets famous – not nameless.
That’s not enough to persuade you?
Let’s look at Twitter. Do you know how many Founders there were?
Most people say 3….Jack, Ev and Biz.
Of course there was Noah Glass.
He was an original co-founder and key to the early development of Twitter.
What happened to Noah Glass? Well….he got kicked out on his arse. Harsh we know.
When Twitter went through its IPO, some relayed that his stake was almost that of a secretary’s. He was not honoured as part of the story.
I think it’s fair to say, and I think he would say, that he was a part of Twitter at the early stages.
In an exclusive interview with Business Insider, Noah Glass is quoted as saying he felt “betrayed” by his “friends”.
We think he needed a Shareholders’ Agreement.
DON’T LEAVE ANYTHING TO CHANCE.
GET LEGALLY PROTECTED TO SECURE YOUR PLACE IN
YOUR STARTUP. IT’S YOUR VISION AND YOUR FUTURE.
And you may say, well these are huge companies, but what about little old me?
You don’t have to look far to see the impact on SME’s and family run businesses, up and down the country, when they don’t have contracts in place. Lost money, shareholder disputes, hostile takeovers, clients not paying and employment tribunals.
That’s not why you got into business, so don’t let it do your head in.
Make your life easier now and get those legal foundations set in stone.
Secure your startup’s future.
BUT… you may be wondering:
With all the responsibilities you’re already juggling, we understand that the time, money or support to get all your legal documents in order just isn’t there!
Seriously – who has weeks to find the right lawyer, get the documents drafted and then pay up to £8,000?
“The need for money dwarfs everything else.”
We know that in the beginning of your startup journey you’re gonna be strapped for cash. You’re hoping for the best, thinking how to bootstrap and focused on growth. But if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. You may be tempted to copy and paste something from Google, and let that be your ‘legal department.’ Youch!
Hear us loud and clear when we say:
“Just don’t do it!”
The Law Society says 66% of people who need legal support don’t seek it.
Cost is a major obstacle for businesses getting legal work done.
Finding a good lawyer who does quality work is challenging.
Can you relate to this?
Forget costly, intimidating and elusive lawyers. With Linkilaw, swerve expensive legal disputes, headaches and stress.

get my legal work sorted?”
“As a founder of my own startup, it was refreshing to work with people who truly understood my business’ needs. I didn’t go to law school. But after the Startup Legal Session I now understand my business’ legal needs more! It’s only been 6 months since we launched, but already I know that I’m so happy I got Linkilaw to do my contracts. ”
– Jane Smith, Customer
WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
Why Can’t I Just Use Legal Documents I Found On Google?
What’s “free” now could cost you your entire business later down the line!
Copying and pasting from Google gives you about as much protection as jumping out of a plane with a bin bag over your head.
Don’t take that leap of faith!
You need robust contracts, you need to be sure that you’re legally compliant and you need documentation that’s written with your business’ needs in mind.
These Documents Are Way Less Expensive Than What ALL Law Firms Charge. Are They Really Up To Scratch?
By all means it would be easy for us to charge you lots more if you’d like us to, but we think it’s time we helped you grow and spend the appropriate amount of money.
After all our big idea is to disrupt the legal industry and get out the way, so you can grow your business.
Our lawyers used to charge extortionate fees before they left their city firms to enjoy a better lifestyle. They’re experienced in working with smaller startups through to representing Facebook. This lifestyle change allowed them to focus on lowering their costs whilst maintaining their high standards.
You need to ensure that you have the most cost-effective, experienced and relatable lawyer to support you and your needs.
How Is It Personalised And Is There A Limit On The Changes Made?
Customisation is included in the price! Gone are the days where you’re left wondering how much the legal work will cost, because your lawyer’s fees are piling up by the hour!
All the work you need is completed in 3 working days, as we make it our mission to understand your business in order to draft the right documents for it.
There will be exceptions if you want us to write the equivalent of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, keep changing your mind backwards and forwards, or if your requests are wildly above the allotted time.
OUR PRICES COMPARED WITH STANDARD LAW FIRMS
We needed to know. So we rang up lawyers and law firms in the U.K.
People didn’t like to give fixed prices. And the prices to meet with them ranged from £150 – £1,500 an hour. That’s an expensive cup of coffee if you go to their offices for a meeting.
After searching far and wide for answers, to nail down firms on their prices and to negotiate like badasses, we were able to find the average U.K. fixed price options.
Sadly, we were shocked by the result.
That was one of the reasons we swore to protect our customers from the lack of transparency and spiraling legal costs that comes from hourly rates. This is why we provide a quality service for a fixed price.
|A Lawyer’s Price||The Linkilaw Price|
|Web Pack||£750 – £1,500||£447|
|Founder’s Pack||£2,500 – £5,000||£997|
|Employer’s Pack||£3,000 – £8,000||£997|
WHAT DO WE GUARANTEE YOU?
We can’t always guarantee that we will keep our prices at this level. But we’re working hard to continue to streamline our service, to keep prices low without compromising quality. We know you want a great service, competitive pricing and a fast turnaround. And we’re proud that our reputation precedes us.
