A startup can be an exciting undertaking. However, whilst the benefits may be great, the initial outlays and work necessary to get the business running profitably is usually quite involved.
Many startups get going without comprehensive legal documents in place because of the upfront legal costs involved. Others actually download free precedents from the internet in the hope that these documents will be valid or achieve something. Unfortunately, this is a decision which might cost founders more money in the long run than they can save on legal set up costs.
Downloading free legal precedents is probably going to create more risks than the documents might actually serve. It’s like installing parts into your car which have not been safety tested, or which are for a different model car altogether.
