Legal labs


Small-by-design, Legal Labs is a boutique network of highly experienced legal and other professionals providing holistic solutions – legal, business and other services – to startups, new ventures and emerging companies as well as to mature midsize to public companies. Given the typical budget constraints and practices of larger company legal departments, this work is typically one-off but more complex, involving more specialized, novel and unusual issues of law and/or requiring a level of technical competence (and sometimes a bit of creative technical investigation) or temporary “surge workload” coverage.

That said, like the original Bay Area local law firms who played founding roles creating the startup machine called Silicon Valley – much of our outlook, rooted in our training as junior lawyers at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, one of the surviving members of those firms and to this day the one firm still essentially synonymous with startups – our identity and practice is grounded on startups, new ventures, and emerging companies – it’s deep in our DNA – and each of us at Legal Labs has more than once worked with startups from the garage (literally, not just metaphorically) to that final validating “liquidation event” — a successful IPO or acquisition — and beyond.
