Why We Do It:

Startups need lawyers that understand how founders think, scale and operate. Founders live at the intersection of risk, revenue & operations, all while facing the constant threat of failure. For this reason, law for startups needs to be done differently. Startups need an agile and experienced legal team that can put the company on solid foundations that allow strategic and economical growth.   

Fallone SV is a law firm built by founders for founders. Our team includes founders of venture-backed companies (including one backed by Y Combinator), venture capital firms, and, of course, a law firm for founders. We have worked in a multitude of industries – from ideas on a napkin to large, multi-national corporations. Our staff is uniquely situated to understand the startup journey and flex with founders at each stage of the business.

Cade Netscher, CEO

They have gone the extra mile when building my company's legal infrastructure. They research any relevant topic in its entirety and thoroughly explain to me the legal implications, both short term, and long term, of any decision that needs to be made. Working with these two along the journey has given me the security and confidence to run a successful company.

After being my own ‘lawyer’ for too long, I’m proud to say that hiring them was the best decision I could have made. Working with people who understand what it is like to be a founder is PRICELESS.
