Attorneys at the Margarian Law Firm work with a variety of companies. We do our best to accommodate the unique needs of  all our clients. To provide you with some insight of companies that we work with we have provided the non -exhaustive list of companies that may need our services below.

 

Early Stage Startups

It is very important to have a competent business attorney or team of attorneys to handle your legal matters starting from the early stage of organizing your business. In fact legal questions arise before the incorporation – such as, where to incorporate, which entity form to choose, etc. Our attorneys will help entrepreneurs to choose the best form of business according to their needs, prospective growth, tax consequences and liability issues. 

 

In addition to providing unique services to early stage startups we offer special discounted flat rates for early stage start-ups. We also accept non traditional forms of payment, such as equity in exchange for services. Notwithstanding the payment options we always offer discounted rates for early stage startups. For more information visit here.  

 

There are 2 main reasons why we offer these discounted rates: 1. As an innovative law firm that works with startups we want to promote growth in the startup industry. Los Angeles is one of the largest startup hubs in the world, and it’s one of the fastest growing startup markets. We understand that its usually hard to settle in Los Angeles as opposed to the Silicon Valley as a startup and we want to help the growth of startups in Los Angeles. 2. When an early stage company succeeds and becomes a midstage company it usually needs more legal services, thus we prefer to offer exceptional discounted services to our clients for long term, during the whole life of your company.
