With over a decade of experience serving as trusted in-house legal counsel for both small and large software companies, we bring a unique and business-centric perspective to legal services for small business, start-ups, and more established companies.

Our subscription plans are designed to provide your business with affordable access to seasoned legal professionals, allowing you to allocate resources more efficiently and benefit from an in-house approach to legal services that emphasizes practical and business-friendly solutions.

Traditional Law firms usually charge an hourly rate and often times do not have experience working in-house. This can result in expensive invoices and work that focuses more on billing than on helping your business succeed. While hourly fees and law firm assistance can be necessary for specialized matters, our model is more affordable for day to day legal advice and transactional assistance.


Also, we have a business-friendly approach to legal services. Our focus is on guiding you through compliant and business-first solutions. We never charge on an hourly basis, and we focus on providing practical solutions in non-legalese language so that you can make business decisions quickly.


Finally, there are other providers that offer unlimited consultation for just a few dollars a month, but in many cases, you don't know what attorney you will get or if they have any background information about your business. at At LegalNow, you will be assigned a dedicated attorney if you sign up for any of our plans and they will work to understand the ins and outs of your business to provide tailored solutions that are aligned with your business objectives.

While we focus on companies in the software and cloud services industry, we are available to serve businesses of all sizes and industries, from early-stage startups to companies experiencing hyper-growth and established enterprises.


We can even help local small businesses (think landscaping, construction, and more). 

Our subscription options are designed to adapt to the different stages of business growth. Whether you're a startup or an established company, we provide tailored legal services to meet your evolving needs.


We have seen the consequences of not having legal assistance negotiating contracts in early stages, including agreeing to terms that are unreasonable and unfair. We can help you prevent those mistakes as you grow to a size that it makes sense to hire in-house counsel. 

Although we are experts in the software and cloud services industry,  our services extend beyond the technology sector.


Whether you're a solo entrepreneur or part of a small team, we offer affordable, high-quality legal counsel to meet your specific requirements.
