Starting a business?

Selling something

Online or offline, you probably have legal problems that you aren't even aware of.

Your simple customer agreement, handshake deal with subcontractors or lack of terms and conditions for your website may be (majorly) exposing you to (major) liability.



By anyone who visits
your website — a real

tens of
in taxes.
and more than you
ever should.

Being in a legally binding partnership.

without even knowing it.

Getting stiffed by a new client.

Because they only paid the deposit, right?

Losing all

Because you
accidentally didn't keep
the proper records.
And ending up owing
(a lot) of money,
ruining your
reputation, having
your intellectual
property ripped off,
and being put straight
out of business.

Actually, let's not
think about it.

Let's get to the point.

Trying to figure out exactly what your business' legal needs are on your own is scary.

(And, let's face it--sometimes you don't know what you don't know.) Hiring an attorney is also really expensive. These two facts are the reason why many online entrepreneurs ignore their business' legal needs altogether
(Cue: Jaws theme song).

But at the same time, you don't want to spend your time learning how to be a lawyer. You just want to get the information you need, to take care of the legal stuff correctly and quickly, so you can get back to doing the work you love.

“Signed up for Small Business Bodyguard emails. Cause I’ll be mad as hell if someone tries to screw me over on the interwebs.”

DISCLAIMER: We think it goes without saying (but we're gonna say it anyway because, ya know, covering our ass and all that), this legal clinic is a resource for educational and informational purposes only and should not take the place of hiring an attorney. Participating in this email clinic does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and the creators of Small Business Bodyguard™ Legal Clinic (that's us!). Customized legal advice is not provided in this clinic (because that is pretty much impossible to do without knowing the delightful details of your specific situation). Instead, this clinic is an educational workshop design to make you aware of some of the key legal needs of your business. If you have a specific legal issue you need help with, you should hire an attorney or purchase Small Business Bodyguard™ when it comes out ... or, probably, both.
