Legal Services for Start-Ups

Sentient Law is not just another business or start-up focused law firm. Bringing in the right attorney in the start-up process is one of the best things you can do for your new business. We believe in forming a long-term strategic partnership for your venture so your business can expand. Attorney Matt Rossetti has helped construct the right agreements, customized for thousands of companies. 

While most business law firms are thinking about their bottom-line and billable hours, we believe in creating value for your start-up business. At Sentient, we’re conscious of how crucial start-up legal services can be to the success, or quite frankly the failure, of any business. We’re sensitive to how precious capital can be to early-stage companies, and we don’t bill for simple phone calls and correspondence. Sentient Law is the perfect solution for companies of all stages. Our affordable fee-structures include contingency, hourly, flat-fee, equity, and any combination thereof.

There are no surprises with Sentient Law.

Flat-Fee / Project Based

Instead, we take a collaborative approach with our clients. We craft a legal plan in flat-fee, project-based steps to ensure that you only pay when we contribute value to your venture. Contact us now to inquire about our affordable startup packages today.
