Hello There!

KICKSTART LAW

PROVIDING LEGAL SERVICES TO

BUSINESSES OPERATING IN

BRITISH COLUMBIA, ALBERTA and WASHINGTON STATE.

We are a cross border business law firm with an office located in Surrey, BC, and licensed to provide legal advice in British Columbia, Alberta and Washington State.


We are here to help our business clients make decisions about the legal issues that business owners face from start up and throughout the business life cycle, and into business succession planning, whether your business is a cross border business or firmly planted on one side of the 49th parallel.

What We Do

BUSINESS STRUCTURE & ENTITY SELECTION

Getting proper advice at the start up of your business is critical to avoiding costly mistakes. We give our start up clients practical legal information for setting up a new business that considers not only today's concerns but  also future business planning.

TRADEMARK & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION

Your brand is the building block of your business making it one of your business' most valuable assets. We can assist you with protectingyour trademarks through federal registration in the US and Canada. We also provide practical advice on licensing agreements, non-disclosure agreements, franchise agreement, and protecting other knowledge based assets. 

BUSINESS SALE & PURCHASE

We work to reduce your risks associated with a purchase or sale of a business. We prepare purchase agreements to protect your interests and we help with the closing procedures to ensure that each side fulfills their obligations in the transition of the business to the new operator. 

ESTATE & PROBATE SERVICES

We work with executors of estates to obtain a timely grant of probate for estates located in BC or Alberta by striving to take the confusion and frustraton out of you having to deal with the complicated probate forms and procedures required by the courts. 


Intellectual Property

CROSS BORDER BUSINESS ADVICE

Before you expand your business across the border, it is important to get proper advice on the best structure for your particular circumstances. We are able to provide you with legal advice for both the US and Canadian side of operating your cross border business to minimize risk and maximize opportunity.

BUSINESS AGREEMENTS

Whether its a shareholder agreement or contract with a supplier or customer, if you need a business agreement prepared we will work with you to draft a contract that protects your interests and specific concerns.



MEDIATION & ARBITRATION 

Mediation and Arbitration are two types of alternative dispute resolutions that can help your business avoid costly and time consuming litigation. Whether contractually bound to seek mediation/arbitration, or voluntarily doing so, we provide alternative dispute resolution services in a timely manner so that you can get on with running your business without distraction.

CLIENT-FOCUSED LEGAL SERVICES

Why
Choose Us?

WE UNDERSTAND THAT BUSINESS IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING.

To provide legal services of the highest quality, we strive to always be "one step ahead" in our profession and to be a law firm that can offer something really valuable to our clients.


In doing so, we hope to earn the respect and loyalty of our clients.

We are driven for your success. This means that we want to understand your business needs and to provide legal services that meet those needs.


One way we do this for our start up business clients is to find ways to make our legal services work within your budget through limited scope arrangements and flat fee legal services when appropriate. 


We also appreciate our well established business clients, and look for ways to provide value to them through exceptional client service, high accessiblity and quick response times. 


We look forward to working with you to help make your business as successful as it can be.

Let's Talk.

Whether you are a new client or an existing loyal client you can schedule a time to talk with your lawyer here.

WHY DON'T WE OFFER FREE CONSULTATIONS?: In some types of legal matters like family law and personal injury cases, a free consultation is appropriate because your lawyer needs to assess whether you have a viable claim or legal matter before you hire him or her to represent you. 


In business law, our first consultation is different. When we meet with clients for the first time we get right to it and begin to give legal advice and business strategy early on in our conversation. As such, a free consultation isn't the right solution for this situation. But, we understand that sometimes a new client is unsure of whether they just need some basic legal information or if they need legal services performed by a lawyer. WIth this in mind we will apply the legal fees paid for the initial consultation towards any legal services rendered in relation to the same matter if you hire us within 7 days of your initial consultation.


In those rare circumstances when a new potential client is just looking for a lawyer and does not need legal advice just yet, we will consider meeting for a brief meet and greet for you to get to know us and so we can learn more about your business legal needs. If you fall into this category please feel free to send us an email and we may explore this option with you.
