In true ‘lean start-up’ fashion I read through lots of other T&C’s, of somewhat related organisations, and had a good mash up and tinker. I’ve had a chuckle or two reading T&C’s, obviously prepared in similar fashion, noting that whoever prepared them didn’t properly delete the bits that really don’t apply to their company. I took my lawyery efforts along to a pro bono clinic run by The Centre for Commercial Law Studies in Lincoln’s Inn Field. This is my second appointment with the student advisors at Queen Mary’s University of London who offer pro bono advice via their Legal Advice Centre in Mile End as well as in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Previously, City law firm ‘Debevoise and Plimpton’ also helped me understand the pros and cons of the various legal structures I could chose for BuddyHub via a pro bono legal clinic organised by my grant giver UnLtd.
A huge big fat thank you to everyone who offers pro bono legal help to start ups: had I had to pay for the legal advice I’ve received it would have eaten into a good chunk of the small grant I’m operating on. Instead I’m able to spend it on other things that I need to pay for. This start up wouldn’t get off the ground without pro bono help and there are already many more people to thank in that respect another day.
