JSA has a dedicated team of lawyers that have been providing quality, strategic and timely legal advice to startups and motivated entrepreneurs. The team has been involved in hand holding and advising promoters in setting up their companies and businesses while simultaneously identifying and advising on legal risks. The experienced team recognises and understands the intricacies of entrepreneurial growth and provides for the right stimuli and an environment for accelerating their business.
The firm has a Starter Kit, which begins with involved engagement, discussions and providing clarifications to the client. Additionally, our team makes available to any start-up through a simple registration process, a document kit that can be customised according to the kind of start-up, and which necessarily includes incorporation documents, agreement inter-se the promoters, documents protecting IP and agreements on their relationship with third parties.
The Project Team relating to the practice is partner-led and supported by a dedicated team of attorneys. JSA also leverages its existing relationship with K&S Partners, a leading IP firm, for specialist advice.
Much of the initial support provided by the firm to start-ups is a combination of free, discounted cost and deferred fee arrangements.
