General Overview of Services

The ELC is a transactional and counseling clinic, which means that we do not represent clients in litigation, arbitration, mediation, or any other active dispute.  Instead our services center on providing your business with a comprehensive “legal and business audit” that will help you identify issues before they become serious problems.  We will provide you with a confidential report, generally at the end of the academic quarter in which you or your business became a client.  This report will also give you guidance on how to proceed to remedy potential problems and/or establish systems to limit or prevent standard business formation and growth pitfalls.  Our standard representation includes a commitment only to this audit process.

Upon mutual written agreement between you and ELC, we may extend our representation to assist you in basic entrepreneurship-focused legal service, such as:

  • Forming a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or other legal business entity as appropriate
  • Filing simple intellectual property (IP) documents such as provisional patent applications, copyright registrations, and trademark registration applications
  • Reviewing, negotiating, and/or drafting contracts such as commercial leases and loans, vendor agreements, services agreements, or employment agreements
  • Assisting in compliance with state and local business licenses and taxes
  • Drafting and execution of trademark and copyright registrations, provisional patent applications, and licensing or assignment agreements
  • IP counseling regarding branding, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, freedom to operate, unfair competition, antitrust, publicity rights, and privacy rights
