Seeking an experience creative attorney to help me decide on the legal structure for my company. We have been calling ourselves a social enterprise and are also interested in being a B corp. We are a for profit but have a strong social impact so we may want to create a foundation, not sure yet. We will be seeking sponsorships from corporations to scholarship underserved students,which we require 25% of all our classes to be underserved students, that's our inclusive model. So we aren't sure of whether to just be an LLC or to create a foundation or non profit arm for those scholarships, or just a scholarship foundations fund. Looking for legal guidance with that and an attorney who can help us incorporate, trademark our company and create contracts when needed on an ongoing basis for a small monthly retainer.
Here are the deliverables:
1. Legal Advisement on Legal Structure to fit our complex company needs
2. File Trademark to protect brand and intellectual property
Seeking to keep attorney on a small $100 per month retainer at $50-$75 per hour until our company grows bigger in our on season.
