Hey folks,

I am currently working on my software startup but instead of going the VC/angel route, I decided to land clients for software development to generate cash flow, reinvest it in my startup and live off of it too.

I find myself needing to produce a variety of legal documents and I'm not sure how to go about it. These include NDAs, SOWs (statement of work, for software dev services/projects), consumer-facing terms of service, etc.

Any advice on how to get started with these?

Many thanks,

Many thanks,
At least in the US business attornies can provide those services and many will offer a free short consultation so you can get a price, or idea of price, and get to know them a little bit. The free, or low cost, online legal templates may or may not be good for your partcular situation. Law can be very complex.

Personally I would first see if I could get some business that I know I could deliver on and then buy the legal services before I contracted. I know one person who put thousands of dollars into a startup, including legal costs, They had plenty of potential orders but could not finance their product. So they lost a lot of money they didn't have to it. It was a very expensive lesson and I'm not sure if they ever learned it!
