Start Up Attorney Gets It Right from the Start

…I am a serial entrepreneur.

One very important thing is to get your capital structure right from the beginning. Much time can be spent undoing bad deals with investors or co-founders. I think having the right attorney from the beginning is important. The right person will also help with general business advice for the first time entrepreneur.

Young startups can’t afford the big firms and I haven’t heard about much “flexibility” on fees lately. I have found a good small firm that I can 100% recommend–I’ve used twice. I asked the lead guy whether I could put his name up here and he said ok. He’s been with large and middle sized law firms as well as the SEC. 100% ethical…

…email him at

—Richard P

“Having worked with several corporate attorneys and large firms, I was more than a bit skeptical. However, working with Mike is unlike working with any of the big firms. Specifically, he answers email, likes his job, and structures his business so that you can actually afford to ask him a question. In spite of working for a small firm, I actually felt more secure than when we previosly hired a top global firm. Mike has been in the trenches, is familar with startups and seems to actually like working with them. Mike set up our corporate entity, created our funding documents and handled contracts and agreements. Obviously, I unreservedly recommend Mike Prozan.”

—Brad, Internet company representative

“I am not a litigation kind of guy, and don’t run my business that way. But my company was unfairly sued by a large overnight shipping company and Mike handled the defense excellently and won. He is now leading a malicious prosecution case against them. Mike helped me deal with my situation with excellent advice. He was able to quickly delve into the legal details of these cases and keep me informed. He also dealt well with a stubborn opposition that issued more motions than a go-go dancer to try and discourage us from proceeding.

I have also used Mike’s services for general business legal advice with agreements and contracts. He has a great deal of experience with venture-backed startup clients. I highly recommend him for any kind of business law needs.”

—Steve, a Business client

“I’ve had nothing but great experiences with Mike. He handled a significant acquisition flawlessly for us and has been involved in numerous projects since. I highly recommend Mike.”

—Jack, a mergers and acquisitions client
