5 Common Legal Mistakes Most Business Owners Make & How To Avoid Them!

Who We Are

At Nupur Shah Law, P.C., we work with start-ups and businesses to create customized legal solutions. We develop business agreements and help setup a legal structure for your company so that you are fully protected. We also advise and assist clients in securing their brands, designs and inventions with trademarks, copyrights and patents.

We personally take the time to understand your business and tailor legal arrangements specifically suited for your company. As the daughter of two entrepreneurs, I know how difficult running a company can be. I am here to support you through the process.

The biggest mistake I see among business owners is that they avoid building a relationship with an attorney early on. This often leads to them losing time and money in the long run. For example, one of my clients failed to register her brand as a trademark that she had spent four years working on. She loved the brand and had put in her fair share of blood, sweat and tears. One day someone started using her brand and registered it as a trademark. My client tried to assert her rights in the brand and fight them, but ran out of resources. In the end, she just had to change her brand. I don’t want this to happen to you or anyone else!

I invite you to set up a conversation with me now so that we can begin to build your company on the right legal footing together.

I am passionate about helping small businesses succeed. Coming from a family of designers and business owners, I love being and supporting entrepreneurs. I grew up watching the day to day lives of entrepreneurs and I know how important it is to have a supportive and reliable team of experts.

Business owners often wear many hats and tend to resolve legal and corporate issues without the assistance of a lawyer. Not getting proper legal assistance can lead to unnecessary crisis down the road when legal issues come up.

We worked with her initially when we needed some legal advise for some contracts that we need placed between us and company that was hiring our  services. Nupur helped us go through the contracts and prepare drafts that will work in our interest as well will keep  the needs of  business in mind. She helped us go through various legal requirements for the business and we have found Nupur very thorough, responsive and helpful. She understands the different segments of startups as well as has great  understanding of corporate law. She helps us through our legal requirements for any new business ventures we have. We always feel she works in our best interest, we highly recommend her.”

  • “We were investing in a startup in India and were looking for an attorney to draft an investor agreement with knowledge of Indian and US laws. When we retained Nupur, we explained to her that we were facing a deadline and needed the contract in three days. Nupur understood our time constraints and delivered the contract to us well before our deadline. We found that Nupur was invaluable in helping us understand the important terms required in the agreement and what we needed to make the best of our investment. Not only did she provide exceptional legal counsel, she went beyond to help brainstorm and share advice based on her experience. We were blown away with Nupur’s ability to always be available, and respond promptly to emails and text messages. Nupur not only represented us as clients, she stood by us and supported us as a friend. I highly recommend Nupur as a lawyer you can trust.”
