As an entrepreneur I have a billion fires to put out. With General Counsel, legal is one I don’t have to deal with.
A lot of bigger firms don’t take the time to invest in explaining and educating you. Westaway met me at my comfort level.

We’ve been working with founders for over a decade. From our experience, General Counsel covers about 90% of a startup’s legal needs. Although issues like regulation, taxation, international structuring and M&A are not included within the scope of General Counsel, everything listed above is included. When projects are out of scope, we often work with our General Counsel clients on a per project basis.
Our cost savings are based on the price to get the services on a per-project basis here at Westaway. If numbers excite you, check out this Google Sheet that gives an itemized breakdown for each General Counsel Plan. All calculations are based on our publicly available transparent pricing list averaged over 12 months. Of course, keep in mind that our prices tend to be 20-40% less than most startup law firms, so the cost savings compared to those firms will be significantly greater.
Contract review includes reviewing, editing and negotiating any contract that is 20 pages or less with any counterparty.
