  • Have you ever thought about whether your operations are truly protecting you legally?
  • Do you know if your contracts are rock solid and can protect you if things go haywire with a client, vendor, or contractor?
  • Do you wonder if you need to trademark or copyright aspects of your business or if you even can?

You shouldn’t avoid the legal aspects of your business just because they feel daunting or they’re not your forte. And you definitely don’t need to spend a fortune to meet up with a suit in a fancy high rise who will bill you $400 an hour.

Why do I care so much that you get access to this? Aren’t I a lawyer who charges clients for supporting their businesses?

Hi. I’m Keren de Zwart, founder of Not Your Father’s Lawyer. 

My entire business model is based on shirking that old-school law firm mentality and making sure entrepreneurs and small business have access to the legal information they need to start and grow their business.

So what do I know? I was that suit in a fancy high rise. (Though, honestly, I’ve always been more of a jeans and t-shirt sort of gal.) 

For the first half of my career, I worked in a traditional corporate law firm, working with big and small companies alike, helping businesses purchase and sell, raising millions of dollars, and taking companies public.

But the whole time I worked in that firm, I kept asking myself:

  • Why can’t we offer these services for cheaper or on a flat-fee basis?
  • Why do we nickel and dime clients for every minute of our time?
  • Why aren’t we more generous with information and resources to give small businesses a better shot at succeeding?

And that’s how, in 2014, Not Your Father’s Lawyer was born. And for the past 6 years, I have helped hundreds of creative businesses like yours get and stay #legallylegit.

Hi. I'm Keren.

The same information that thousands of clients have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last 11 years to get is here in this guide for a limited time for just $97.

The Creative’s Guide to a #LegallyLegit Business is fantastic! Beautiful, easy to understand and apply, and so valuable!
