We want to help turn your great idea into a great business, and a key part of Advancing Innovation at Renner Otto is providing start ups and early stage companies with counseling and legal services.

We have not only worked with start ups, but some of our attorneys have founded start ups and have faced many of the same challenges and issues that you might face.  These include:

  • Selecting and forming a business entity
  • Planning for funding rounds and having non-founding investors
  • Key legal agreements with contractors and others
  • Deciding when to pursue IP protection and the right mix of patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets

Resources are tight early on—we know that—which is why we are flexible…but the clock is already running.  The failure to plan and act early can ruin the value of your intellectual property, allow others to copy, and make you less valuable and appealing to investors.
