Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#start#tips Questions about the legal requirements surrounding the establishment, incorporation or funding of a startup may be among the most common and most challenging that entrepreneurs face. There’s the general distrust of lawyers, alongside the sense – true or not – that legal advice will be too costly.LawPivot tackles this problem by providing a place where companies, but especially startups, can ask legal questions and get crowdsourced answers from qualified lawyers. LawPivot aims to ease some of the obstacles – financial, but also logistical – that make finding a lawyer so difficult.The co-founders, Jay Mandal and Nitin Gupta, are both lawyers. Mandal was the lead of Apple’s mergers and acquisitions team, and Gupta was an IP attorney at a several national firms. They bring to the table, then, an understanding of the needs of entrepreneurs and lawyers, the latter of whom are finding their own profession changing and are needing new ways to develop their businesses.How It WorksUnlike other Q&A sites, the questions you pose to LawPivot are confidential. You tag your questions with relevant keywords, which helps the site’s recommendation engine identify the best lawyers for the job. It’s the addition of recommendations and algorithms to this sort of online inquiry that LawPivot’s Gupta describes as “the next direction of Q&A.”You can ask questions about a variety of legal topics that concern your startup: contracts, stock issues, employment, licensing, patents, trademarks, real estate, just to name a few. But when you tag your question and request a lawyer, you needn’t only do so based on subject matter expertise. You can indicate, for example, that you need someone who’s quick to respond.You can then choose to send your question to the lawyers you choose or the ones LawPivot recommends, and you’ll get an email when a lawyer responds to your question.Through the end of the month, LawPivot is free. And it’s restricted to questions that address California law (so, California companies and California lawyers.) The company, which just received a round of funding from Google Ventures, does plan to expand beyond California eventually (and if you’re a company outside of California who has a question about a California legal matter, you’re still welcome to sign up). Following its free trial period, LawPivot will charge companies on either a per question or per monthly basis. audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts
Posters declaring Union Minister and BJP MP from Nawada in Bihar, Giriraj Singh, as “missing” sprung up on the walls in his constituency on Wednesday. The posters also announced a reward of ₹11,000 to those who would provide information about him.“Union Minister and MP from Nawada Giriraj Singh has been missing for last several years…the people of Rajauli are desperately searching him…whoever sees him or gets him are kindly requested to inform the people of Rajauli…those who will inform about him will be rewarded with ₹11,000,” said the poster donning a large-size picture of Mr. Singh, who is Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the Narendra Modi Cabinet. Hindutva standRajauli is a subdivision of Nawada district, the parliamentary constituency of Mr. Singh. Mr. Singh has been often hitting headlines for his hard Hindutva stand and statements. In 2016 too a “missing” poster was pasted for Mr. Singh in Barbigha town of his constituency for non-development of the area. Soon the Minister visited Barbigha and held a meeting with the locals. Mr. Singh, though, has been visiting his constituency every now and then while holding meetings with the locals, say many in his constituency.“The poster has been pasted by some anti-social elements belonging to Opposition parties to defame our MP… everyone knows that our MP visits different parts of his constituency every month,” said Ranjit Kumar, local BJP leader in Rajauli. The local BJP workers and leaders have removed the posters. “Only recently our MP had visited several villages in the Meskaur block of Rajauli…people must be aware of such rumour-mongers and mischief makers,” said district BJP president Sashi Bhushan Kumar ‘Bablu’. Locals said the MP had promised them renovation work on National Highway-31 but it had not been started yet despite several reminders to him.
