COMPANY SET UP


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.

STANDARD CONTRACTS & SERVICES


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.

CAPITAL RAISING


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.
