As a small to mid-sized business, your growth is always on watch. Whether it be your yearly sales, the size of your network, or your rising client base, you don’t miss a beat. However, the same can’t often be said about the legal side of things. Unless you hold some sort of legal education yourself, it can be difficult to keep up with evolving operating agreements, employee handbooks, and the necessary policies to stay compliant with state and federal regulations. 

Basecamp Legal is your local partner in Colorado for the legal steps that will keep you compliant, while clearing the path for the exploration of new opportunities for your business.  

Basecamp Legal provides white glove legal services to new companies looking to make the next step, and those which need help getting over certain legal hurdles. Adrienne Fischer, a Denver-based lawyer and mediator with Basecamp Legal, says, “(We are) a team of approachable attorneys, who provide solutions to growing companies.” Overall, their mission is to ensure that clients have their legal ducks in a row when revisiting contracts, trying to sell their business, or if they require assistance while raising funds from new investors. The company is primarily focused on supporting outdoor and growing companies, and caters to a handful of technology companies, as well. 

Adrienne says Basecamp’s attorneys are legal guides who navigate their clients through difficult processes, especially fundraising, which a large number of companies find daunting. This is why Basecamp Legal walks clients through each step of the legal process, such as keeping you educated on appropriate fundraising mechanisms and making sure your agreements match your operations for regulatory purposes. The bottom line being: when growing businesses come to Adrienne and her Basecamp team to explore new opportunities, they know precisely what’s happening every step of the way.

On the topic of exploring new opportunities, the firm also enjoys assisting with investor relations, not to mention branding projects and trademarks. Adrienne and her team have helped countless growing organizations make sure they have the proper foundation documents in place, protect their brands, and will help you mitigate risk while you run your business. These are ways to protect your income generation as well. It’s a mix of protecting the blood, sweat, and tears that went into forming your pride and joy, while staying open to the exploration of new business opportunities and bringing on talent. Either way, Basecamp Legal is committed to mitigating risk and protecting your assets at all costs. 

One last-yet-crucial note from Adrienne is that this is a great time of the year for a legal health check-up if you own a business. This is to make sure that you have the basic foundation documents in place to take your organization to the next level, and to do it legally. She uses the example of operating agreements, which should be updated as the business grows like most documents created for your business.

Operating agreements, employment agreements, and others are essentially “living and breathing documents” according to Adrienne, as they tend to change with gradual growth. Basecamp Legal can help with keeping those important documents up-to-date as your business sees steady growth, along with helping out with areas of compliance. Many growing companies also forget to draft employee handbooks and set regulatory policies to comply with state and federal laws, and don’t see the little legal hiccups they’ve made along the way. If this sounds familiar, Basecamp Legal can ensure that your operating agreements are in order, that you’re maintaining the correct HR files, and establishing a trademark if you’re launching a new branding effort. Maybe you signed an operating agreement years ago, and it was never updated - all of this, according to Adrienne, is included in their legal health check-up. 

If you’re a small to mid-sized business owner in or around Denver, Colorado, don’t hesitate to reach out to Adrienne at Basecamp Legal for the legal expertise to explore new avenues of growth. Her team can also lend a hand if you require outside counsel for M&A transactions, trademarks, real estate financing and agreement, business formation, or technology law expertise.
