Can any business use the startup legal services?


For early-stage startups or those just embarking on their startup journey, Allens Accelerate offers the A-Suite package. This is a free set of essential legal documents drafted specifically for startups. They contain user-friendly guidance notes and optional text for startups to customise themselves. They are the perfect tool to get your startup underway.

For those startups that have progressed further in their journey (eg those with a minimum viable product or those seeking their first major funding round), Allens Accelerate offers fixed and flexibly-priced services and advice. Once at this stage, startups are generally in need of more complex and specialised advice.

If this is what you need, please reach out to us. We'll carry out a quick screening process to ensure we are the right firm for you and that we can build a long-term relationship. Then we can get to work.

I am looking for a startup lawyer to help with something not listed here?


Allens Accelerate can provide fixed and flexibly-priced services for established startups on all areas of corporate law, fundraising, intellectual property, data protection, employment, tax and other issues that affect emerging companies.

Does Allens have a startup school or startup accelerator?


Allens has recently launched Auctus, an eight-week accelerator program specifically for legaltech and regtech startups. It addresses two challenges for the legal industry:

  • contract creation and management; and
  • risk assessment, management and compliance.

Whilst we don't have a general accelerator program for startups in other industries, the Allens Accelerate practice is dedicated to supporting the Australian startup community by providing legal assistance.

We have partnered with many of Australia's successful startups that are responding to disruption, and with investors and corporates who are investing in innovation. We are able to use our extensive network to connect our Allens Accelerate clients with potential customers, investors and policymakers.

Will you contact me after I download the A-suite package of legal document templates?

It depends.

Our Allens Accelerate A-Suite package of legal documents is available for any startup. They provide the necessary legal foundation to establish your enterprise, and you can customise the documents yourself using the detailed, user-friendly guidance notes and optional text.

If you give us your consent and your details, we may contact you from time to time to share news and opportunities or invite you to networking events. For later-stage startups or scaleups, we may also contact you to discuss how we can assist with more complex or specialised legal services, such as strategic advice on commercial arrangements, capital raising or data governance and privacy compliance.

You can unsubscribe at any time, and if you do not give us your consent, we will not contact you.
