Founders do everything at the beginning. They need counsel that does everything, too. Few matters are more important than getting things right at the outset. Global Capital creates the initial legal agreements and business processes necessary—from the corporate formation documents and filings to the basic employment and independent contractor agreements, NDAs, term sheets and commercial agreements and the business processes to manage early growth.
