What is CyberlawStudio?
We are a legal boutique specializing in offering general counsel or à la carte legal services to startups, emerging businesses and entrepreneurs in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles in the fields of technology, digital media and entertainment.
Who are the attorneys at CyberlawStudio?
Our attorneys are driven specialists in their fields. Each of us has practiced for more than 10 years in firms large and small, and in companies as in-house counsel. We strive to deliver legal solutions to clients that make sense, as legal advice should be a tool, not a luxury.
How do CyberlawStudio lawyers work with me or my company?
We treat our clients the way we would like to be treated. There will be no radio silence. We return phone calls and respond to emails promptly. When asked a legal question, we break the legalese down into digestible bits and propose workable solutions.
What are the typical fee arrangements with CyberlawStudio?
We provide clients with a flat fee quote on legal matters whenever we can. To get an idea of our rates, incorporation typically costs $600-700 in legal fees (excludes filing fees), an NDA $350-$600 and a startup package costs around $4500-5000 (excludes filing fees). Other matters, such as those requiring negotiations with third parties, we bill on an hourly basis, but we will always provide our clients with time estimates. For clients who retain our general counsel services, we often agree on a negotiated monthly rate, which, if translated into an hourly rate, is at least 30% less than the rates charged by traditional law firms for experienced lawyers.
Why should we engage CyberlawStudio?
We offer cost-efficient, tailored and quality legal services to clients. We are able to do this because unlike large firms, we do not have the pressure of billing hours to support a huge overhead. Every client we take on, we believe in their business and give them our full attention as we do not employ junior associates to churn out form documents for 100 startup clients hoping that 1 of them will turn into Facebook. We aim for 99% of our clients’ businesses to be sustainable. One size DOES NOT fit all. For example, our startup clients raise capital utilizing various methods including venture capital, crowdfunding, friends & family or their own clients. As experienced attorneys we provide clients with advice that is practical for the present, with an eye toward building the future.
