In a legal industry plagued by archaic processes, we continuously seek innovative solutions to better address our clients’ needs.
Tech and Start Ups
Success of startups is absolutely contingent on having the proper legal guidance as soon as possible. The ideal is to have legal advice from the very beginning – but it’s never too late to obtain legal assistance in helping your new company. At GLC, our goal is to work with start-ups every step of the way, and will ensure that all the legal provisions in and safeguards are in place, so that the founders can focus on one thing – growing their company. Whether an entrepreneur needs to get incorporated and organized, have the organizational agreements prepared, or help facilitate funding to make sure their rights and interests are protected, we at GLC can help.
These days, the world ‘tech’ is synonymous to an industry focused solely on invention and innovation. As such, the expectation is that in order to succeed in this fast-spaced, demanding, and ever-changing world, tech companies need to be bold and strive to take new risks. The law, however, is much more slow to adapt to this rapid world, and the law keeps constantly evolving. A tech company could find itself liable under certain regulations that it had no idea even applied to it. At GLC, we make a point to stay aware of the current laws and determine how to apply them to your advantage. This means that your technology, and your company, not only don’t have to worry about infringing the law, but can harness it to your advantage. In the dymanic world of tech, GLC can not just have you comply with the law, but can have the law comply with you.
Without the proper legal organization and governance practices, managers and executives may find themselves spending needless hours trying to resolve issues that could have been easily avoided with the proper organizational framework. That’s precisely where GLC lawyers come in. We at GLC are able to identify the deficiencies and legal risks from an organizational perspective, and remedy them to make sure that the best organizational framework is put in place, and all the necessary contracts are instituted. Whether this ranges from making sure the articles of incorporation are properly drafted and practices comply with the articles, to making sure minute books are fully updated, to drafting the necessary agreements with internal and external stakeholders, GLC lawyers are able to assist as your business guardians.
Disputes and Litigation
There are legal risks with running a business, and sometimes things do not always go in the right direction. Disputes can arise in various ways, whether between shareholders, the board of directors, or executive management. Disputes can also be transactional or contractual in nature, whether involving suppliers, customers, or other third parties. Unfortunately, these issues are often a reality for businesses. We can help you navigate complex legal questions pertaining to your business dispute to help you determine what your rights and obligations are, so that you are armed with the right information to act decisively to secure your business and financial interests. GLC lawyers are also equipped to handle a broad range of disputes, including defamation/libel, conflicts involving property and new housing developments, construction liens, debt collections, insurance defence claims, personal injury matters, and professional negligence against lawyers, accountants, medical practitioners, brokers, and other professionals. The best way to determine if GLC is able to assist you in your legal dispute is to schedule a meeting.
