One of the many services we offer startups is assisting with the business formation. Our startup lawyers will guide you through the process of incorporating and organizing your corporate structure.
Incorporate and Prepare Corporate Records
We can help you incorporate federally or provincially, with named or numbered corporations. We will then prepare your corporate records to elect your directors, appoint officers and issue shares.
Structure Your Startup
If necessary, we can plan for future equity investment in a cap table and help you incentivize founders and employees with share vesting or stock options.
Do you need to set up governing rules for your company? We can help you draft your shareholder agreements with co-founders.
We will help you transfer IP after you’ve been incorporated.
If your company has more than one shareholder, you might consider entering into a shareholders’ agreement. A shareholders’ agreement is an agreement between the shareholders of a company. Its purpose is to protect the shareholder’s investment in the company, to establish a fair relationship between the shareholders and govern how the company is run.
We can help all those who come together with the common goal of growing a business with a shareholders’ agreement.
