스타트업 및 VC


분야 소개

When D’LIGHT Law Group was founded, we located ourselves at D.CAMP, known to be the “holy land” of Korean startups, with the aim of building a healthy and sustainable startup ecosystem. We provide three levels of legal services customized according to the growth stage of each startup. For the first stage early startups, we provide free legal lectures and mentoring. For the second stage startups that received angel or seed investments, we provide legal advice focused on further stabilizing their business. For third stage startups that have received series investments, we provide general corporate, M&A, and exit strategy counsel to further facilitate their growth. Startup companies experience similar legal issues to those of mid-sized or large-sized companies. To address these legal issues, startup companies must have access to reliable legal advice during all their stages: from their establishment, protection of intellectual property rights, labor issues during operation, through to legal issues during investment negotiations. Based on our experience in dealing with legal issues for companies of various sizes, we provide customized advice for startup companies. By leveraging our understanding and experience in each startup’s specific industry, we aim to provide cost-effective legal advice from the perspective of investors and the startup. Finally, we work with organizations like D.CAMP, Korea Angel Investment Association, Wadiz, MYSC, Fast Five, and Dream Plus to ensure a healthy ecosystem for startups.
