Legal Services

Choosing the right attorney can help you get even more out of our platform, so we’ve partnered with attorneys who have adopted Shoobx as part of their practice to bring our customers Legal Services on Shoobx.

For early stage companies on Shoobx, we now offer two legal services offerings: the Year One Package and the Corporate Package. If you’re a company that is thinking about incorporating on Shoobx or recently incorporated your company on our platform, read on!

The Year One Package

Newly incorporated companies on Shoobx can apply for the Year One package, which includes fixed fee corporate legal representation for all actions executed in the Shoobx platform for up to twelve months, or up until your first equity financing (whichever comes sooner) and capped equity financing counsel fees* for your Series Seed or Series A fundraise.

An equity financing is a huge milestone for your company, and when it’s time for your fundraise your attorney will help you leverage the Shoobx equity financing workflow to get your financing done in an efficient and cost-effective way.

The Corporate Package

For companies that have already incorporated and have 20 or fewer workers, the Corporate Package provides ongoing fixed fee legal representation for any actions taken using a Shoobx workflow*. The Corporate Package renews annually for companies that remain eligible.

*Some exclusions apply, see FAQ section below for details.
