Customer Story

Ableto launched in 5 countries simultaneously with Canny’s help.

Discover how Canny’s innovative approach to legal tech can help you efficiently handle contracts, minimize risks, and foster strong business relationships.

Starting a new business venture is thrilling, but it also comes with substantial legal vulnerabilities that entrepreneurs often overlook in their excitement. As nimble startups race to capitalize on opportunities, the looming threat of litigation can bring promising progress to a grinding halt.

This is where Canny's legal expertise shines through. Canny works closely with emerging companies to identify potential blind spots and implement preventative measures well before legal trouble comes calling. Consider Canny your startup's first line of defense—detecting risks early and safeguarding your company's vision at every stage of growth.

A New Approach

The prospect of building innovative products and disrupting established industries is undeniably alluring for entrepreneurs. However, the same qualities that allow startups to be fast-moving and bold—small teams, limited resources, moving quickly to market—also expose them to increased litigation risks, including:

  • Patent infringement allegations from competitors
  • Breaches of contracts signed during rapid scaling periods
  • Employee complaints stemming from lack of HR infrastructure
  • Unvetted partnerships formed in growth "test it" mindset

Balancing disruptive thinking with sound legal protections is a tricky but mandatory tightrope for startups to walk. This is why it pays to have guidance from specialists like Canny who can pinpoint gaps and reduce exposure proactively.

Mapping Out Prevention Plans

Rather than scrambling to handle legal emergencies reactively, smart founders work preventatively with Canny to safeguard their startups on the front end. Some key areas where Canny layers in litigation buffers include:

  1. Vetting deals and contracts thoroughly before signing: No more skimming terms and hastily agreeing just to keep momentum going. Canny reviews all partnerships and licensing contracts with a fine-toothed comb to catch any clauses that may leave you vulnerable.
  2. Developing legally sound HR infrastructure and policies: Even tiny startups need formalized systems for hiring, firing, harassment claims, etc. if they want to avoid damaging lawsuits. Canny makes sure you have the right foundations in place as you scale.
  3. Guiding patent and trademark filings to protect intellectual property: You need air-tight IP protection locked down or all your innovations become prime targets. Let Canny's experts pave the way for bulletproof patent and trademark claims.
“Startups often prioritize explosive growth over defensive legal strategies. But you need to have protective precautions baked into your DNA from day one.”

By proactively bulking up defenses rather than scrambling last-minute during legal attacks, savvy founders set their startups up for sustained success rather than nasty litigation roadblocks. Lean on Canny’s battle-tested attorneys to provide the protective foundation you need to stay legally sound from launch and beyond. They’ll work closely with your leadership team to neutralize threats before they become sinkholes swallowing your resources, energy and vision for the future. With Canny vigilantly monitoring the startup landscape and guarding your flank, you can keep confidently moving full steam ahead with your industry-disrupting plans.
