founder-friendly legal solutions
IFK Law is a law firm for early-stage startups, small businesses, and creative professionals. Whether you're just starting out or looking to grow, we can help you navigate the legal side of your industry so you can focus on running your business.
We take a modern, client-centered approach to legal service that prioritizes flexibility, agility, and personal interaction.
We work the way you work. A lawyer should be a contributing member of your team, not a roadblock or a bottleneck. We've put in years at tech firms, startups, and cultural organizations, so we know how our clients work. Our operating model is inspired by principles underlying agile software development and the lean startup movement, and prioritizes practical, cost-conscious solutions developed in collaboration and communication with clients.
We know you're unique. If you need a cookie-cutter document template, there are plenty of sites that will gladly sell you one. If you want expertise-backed solutions that take into account your particular industry, circumstances, and personal goals, we're here to help. Our clients span industries from digital video and graphic design to IT consulting and financial software development. We'll learn everything we need to know about your business, and we'll give you as much personal attention as you need.
We're not afraid of technology. We've worked at firms where ninety-year-old lawyers typed out memos on typewriters (seriously). That's not us. We fully embrace technology to offer a better client experience. Our office is virtual, which lets us keep our rates low. And we're on every communications platform and social network, so you can always reach us by phone, email, Twitter, and Facebook, text, or Google chat.
We're a lot like you. We got into the business of helping independent entrepreneurs and early-stage businesses in part because we're genuinely into the sorts of things our clients do. We like tech. We read blogs. We go to meetups, hackathons, talks, galleries, museums, and shows. So when you tell us what you do, instead of a blank look you'll get knowledgeable and enthusiastic service.
Ultimately, our philosophy is simple: to empower independent, entrepreneurial people to build and create things by providing affordable, accessible, and knowledgeable legal advice and solutions.
