Entrepreneur Support Program

As small and mid-sized businesses strive to reach their next phases of growth, entrepreneurs are often too busy meeting critical deadlines and too focused on overcoming technology hurdles to be bothered with development of a competent set of procedures and best practices.

Every entrepreneur worries when starting a new business that an oversight could cripple the business at an early stage. Often the entrepreneur worries about missing opportunities to protect IP rights or generate IP assets for the company that would otherwise form a significant part or perhaps even most of the company’s value down the road. It may not be until the entrepreneur attempts to implement an exit strategy or the next phase of development that these lost opportunities are realized. At that point, precious available resources are then squandered on attorney’s fees defending an action or correcting some error. Hiring a business attorney with no intellectual property experience will not prevent these problems.

For these reasons, the entrepreneur needs the support of an attorney who thoroughly understands the interplay between intellectual property and business, and can add value to the company by protecting and optimizing the corporation’s assets at every phase.

At BainwoodHuang, we understand the challenges faced by small and mid-sized businesses. Our Entrepreneur Support Program was developed by our entrepreneurial attorneys for our entrepreneurial clients. We know that there is a need for competent and professional legal services when you are starting your business. We also know that capital is tight in the beginning and mid-level stages, and that you have to keep costs under control.

The Entrepreneur Support Program meets your need for experienced legal counsel while keeping costs under control. By working with you in the context of the Entrepreneur Support Program we expect to win your confidence and trust and establish a basis for a long term, mutually beneficial relationship. We want to be your partner in success.
