Providing legal services to entrepreneur clients is the heart of the mission for the IJ Clinic. Instead of being a walk-in service or help center, we forge meaningful, long-term relationships with a small group of clients and focus our resources on helping them achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.
Learn more about the entrepreneurs we help.
Some of the legal services we provide include:
- Set up a business organization.
- Structure the relationships among founders and investors.
- Apply for licenses and permits.
- Negotiate a lease.
- Draft and negotiate contracts.
- Understand and comply with regulations.
- Hire employees.
- Protect intellectual property.
If you would like to become a long-term client, please apply here. While we are only able to accept a very small number of clients, we are happy to refer you to other resources for entrepreneurs in the Chicago area. Please note that the IJ Clinic does not accept walk-in appointments.
If you have hit a legal roadblock because licensing or permitting rules are foolish, outdated or impossible, we want to hear about it. We want to know what issues are causing real problems in the real world, so we can work for reform.
