Are you starting a business or non-profit?

No matter what kind of creator you are – business person, artist, social entrepreneur, you name it — there are many legal issues you’ll need to consider. We understand that it’s hard to find extra money to develop your corporate structure, protect your brand, review contracts or deal with human resources questions when you’re trying to launch an enterprise.  We operate a free advice service and legal clinic that may be able to help.
