Venture startups have the ability to make a huge impact on society and the economy by becoming the basis of innovation. By utilizing business models and products & services that have never been seen before, such companies face a number of unknown legal risks in areas that may not even have a legal or administrative regime. On one hand, this provides opportunity for innovation; but, on the other hand, the uncertainty creates risks for both the company and investors.
ZeLo has advised over 100 venture startups in various areas and has provided legal advice during each phase of the company’s development beginning from the idea phase. Each phase of development has different legal issues to deal with and we work closely with the business side and provide expedient communication so that the business can grow at the speed it desires.
