WE KNOW STARTUPS.
General Standards is an international law firm specialising in Company Setup, Capital Raising Advice and Standard Contracts & Services for early stage startups. We have worked with over 1,500 startups since 2012.
We specialise in setting up new ventures to be ready for business partners, investors, and future team members with a modern approach to shareholder documentation and founder structuring, with Australia’s best pricing and fastest turnaround.
Based on the years of learnings from producing tens of thousands of legal documents for startups, we’ve developed a suite of startup-specific contracts and services, at affordable fixed-prices, that our lawyers tailor for clients in just a few hours.
We have advised on 125+ early stage capital raisings, from seed and angel rounds, accelerator investments, multi-million dollar Series A and B venture capital financings, Crowd Sourced Funding, and everything in between.
General Standards has incorporated dozens of Founder Institute startups since 2014. I recommend that any startup founder speak with General Standards to get setup the right way, the first time.
