A Few Words
About Us

KICKSTART LAW IS A CROSS BORDER BUSINESS LAW FIRM SERVING BUSINESS CLIENTS IN WASHINGTON STATE, BRITISH COLUMBIA AND ALBERTA, CANADA

Kickstart Law provides legal services to businesses in Washington State, British Columbia, and Alberta Canada. We have two offices, one in Bellingham, WA and another in South Surrey, BC (serving lower mainland BC, including Vancouver, White Rock, Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford and everywhere in between).  


Our clients are a mix of businesses, some doing business only in the US, some doing business only in Canada, and others doing business across the border.

.

We offer a wide range of legal services for businesses including legal advice on business start ups, business entity selection, and the business agreements that owners should have in place such as shareholder agreements or operating agreements.


We also advise on contract law, whether you need a contract reviewed or written for your business transaction. Our contract law services include pretty much anything a business might need, such as non-compete agreements, buy and sale agreements, consulting contracts, employment agreements,  and pretty much anything else that the business owner might face while running a business.


If your business doesn't have the budget for full legal representation in dealing with its contracts, we also offer a limited scope "DIY" service where you can complete an online questionnaire and generate your own business agreement for a lower fee than it would cost to have direct legal representation. 


Our intellectual property law services include assisting with branding strategies including copyright and trademark registrations, intellectual property protection, and licensing agreements.


As a cross border law firm, we advise business clients on doing business across the USA - Canada border. We offer advice on the types of legal issues that might arise when expanding your business operations across the border, whether through an online store or a physical presence in another country. We work with a team of trusted advisors to assist you with every aspect of expanding your business into the US or Canada.


We would be happy to meet with you to discuss your business and how we can help to kickstart it onto the road to success. Please contact us to schedule a time to meet.

OUR MAIN PRIORITIES:


CLIENT SERVICE

We care about our clients and their businesses. We strive to provide legal services that our clients feel help them reach their business goals.

FIXED FEE LEGAL SERVICES

We do not strive to grab the legal market at any price, offering low prices and giving sky-high promises. Instead we aim to provide transparency to our legal fees by offering flat fee quotes whenever possible prior to commencing work. In that way we hope to build a long lasting business relationship with our clients that is built on trust.

KNOWLEDGE

We do our best to make it easy to work with us and to provide you with legal information that is presented in a way that helps you make informed business decisions.
