Entrepreneurship & Startup Law Practice Group Proud to be the Legal Resource of StartLouis

Lewis Rice has a wealth of knowledge for advising new and growing businesses on matters such as intellectual property, trademark, copyright, entity formation, information technology, and technology licensing. That's why last year, we created the Entrepreneurship & Startup Law Practice Group to bring together a variety of disciplines and cater to the unique needs of the growing startup effort in St. Louis and beyond, and we recognize that StartLouis is a leader in that effort.

StartLouis is a grassroots community of bootstrappers, solopreneurs, and startup enthusiasts whose mission is to bring St. Louis entrepreneurs together for learning and collaboration. The organization provides monthly meet-up events with presentations, Q&A sessions with accomplished, local CEOs (and mayors), and opportunities to network and hear from other members of the startup community. As a Champion Sponsor of StartLouis, Lewis Rice attends the monthly meet-up and provides a legal perspective to individuals interested in beginning new businesses or growing their young companies.

Our firm has represented startups in industries ranging from medical devices to video games to big data mining and analytics, to which we provide cost-effective representation to lay the foundation for growth and success. In addition to involvement in StartLouis, several Lewis Rice attorneys donate their time and talent to a variety of organizations active within the St. Louis startup community, serving as mentors and board members. At Lewis Rice, we understand that an investment in our home is an investment in our future.

Throughout our Firm's history, Lewis Rice attorneys have made excellence the foundation of our practice. Founded in 1909, more than a century of service has given us the experience, resources and tools to serve our clients' dynamic needs. Our diverse team of more than 150 attorneys provides counsel and solutions for the challenges facing local, regional and national businesses, as well as individuals and families. Lewis Rice maintains offices in downtown St. Louis, suburban Town & Country, Washington and Jefferson City, Missouri and Edwardsville, Illinois. We also have offices in downtown Kansas City, Missouri and suburban Overland Park, Kansas.
