Lean Startup Lawyers for Emerging Growth Companies
Introduction
Pragmatic, efficient counsel “for the rest of us”

Bottom Line Law Group provides business-critical legal services to lean startups and growth companies in a wide range of corporate, commercial, Internet and intellectual property law matters.  We offer the industry knowledge, accessibility and business acumen of seasoned in-house counsel, coupled with the subject matter expertise of top-tier international firms, all delivered with the personal touch and flexible pricing of a small law office.

BLLG is a new and different kind of firm, built from the ground up and optimized to serve lean startups and other high-growth, IP-intensive companies in the technology and digital media sectors.  Having represented pioneers and leaders in the broadband Internet access, new media content, online advertising, community, Web search, e-commerce, social networking and online dating categories since 1998, we have developed unparalleled breadth and depth of experience in legal and business issues that are unique to social media/Web 2.0, digital media convergence, social gaming, location-based services and similar innovation-driven enterprises.  As a result, although we represent clients in a variety of industries, we have the distinction of being the nation’s first true social media law firm.

Our firm itself is a startup.  Like our clients, we are focused on innovation, speed to market, and value.  As startups seek partners to help them launch, cultural fit and a shared vision for success is imperative.  Our goal is to provide high value to businesses who require that a small investment in legal services generate a large return — from incorporation through angel and venture capital financing rounds and beyond.  We invite you to learn more about us; explore the resources for entrepreneurs on our site; connect with us using social media; meet in person at an upcoming event; and call or email us for a free initial consultation.
