Andrea help and support has gone beyond her call of duty and I will be forever grateful for Andrea and her staff at Henry Business Law.

We work best with entrepreneurs who are… 

Ambitious

Your business might be small but it’s growing, and you have big goals for it

Committed

You’re willing to invest in your business to get it to the heights you know it can achieve

Innovative

You do business differently and you need a lawyer who understands tech and the new economy

The Secure Startup is probably not for you if… 

  • Your “business” is really just a hobby that makes some money
  • You’re not interested in an ongoing relationship with your lawyer, you’d rather call a random attorney when you get sued
  • Your business is not your baby- the thing that gives you the freedom and finances to live the life of your dreams

As an accountant I often need to work closely with a lawyer to complete business transactions. Andrea always treats my clients with patience and answers all their questions. Her knowledge of issues for small business is unparalleled. highly recommend for all your small business needs.

Your growing business needs a legal team…

and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get it.

Got Questions?

While we’re happy to answer questions unique to your situation during our Free
Consultation, here are a few answers to some of the initial questions people have when
considering this type of service.

Will there be any extra costs?
The Secure Startup has a ton of inclusions but they are some things that aren’t covered namely: courier fees, registration fees for incorporations outside of Ontario, trademark application fees beyond the first class. We don’t handle litigation but will happily refer you to a litigation lawyer in which case their fees will be separate from the Secure Startup program.
Can I change my plan?
Because the plans include set services, downgrades aren’t possible. You can upgrade at any time- just drop us a line and pay the difference between the two levels.
Can I cancel my plan?
Our retainer agreements require a minimum commitment of one year. However, we understand that life happens. If you need to cancel, we’ll charge you for the services already provided at our stated prices and then let you go (sniff, sniff)
How much access do I have to a lawyer?
It depends on the level you choose. At all levels you will have consultations as needed for the specific services included in the plan. For Levels 2 and 3, you also have access to your lawyer as matters come up. We block time for our retainer clients so you will normally be able to book a consultation within a week of your request.
