How do I become a client?

Instead of being a walk-in service and providing legal assistance on individual legal matters, the IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship forges meaningful, long-term relationships with a rotating group of entrepreneurial clients and focuses on helping them achieve their dreams.

Some of the legal services we provide to for-profit entities include:

  • Set up a business organization.
  • Structure relationships among founders and investors.
  • Negotiate a lease.
  • Draft and negotiate contracts.
  • Advise on employees and independent contractors.
  • Protect intellectual property.
  • Apply for licenses and permits.
  • Understand and comply with regulations.

To be considered a client or if you hit a legal roadblock because of licensing or permitting, contact us at [email protected] or at (773) 834-3129. Please be aware the IJ Clinic does not offer walk-in appointments and is not a drop-in clinic during normal business hours.

While we represent a limited number of clients at a time, we are happy to refer you to other legal services and share additional resources for entrepreneurs in the Chicago area.
