DIY legal companies sell basic forms that apply to many, but not all, circumstances. The problem with using fill-in-the-blank forms when starting a business is that every situation is unique. What may be a simple filing for most businesses may not be for yours.
Startup lawyers typically function as general counsel for their startup clients because early-stage companies rarely have in-house legal resources.
