Chattanooga Legal Startup Expands Nationally

Monday, January 6, 2014

PUSHTOSTART, a Chattanooga-based legal brand for startups, announces its expansion into several national legal markets. Locations are being launched in Atlanta; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Southern California, and Columbus, Oh. PUSHTOSTART also announced that its product will soon be available in more than a dozen states, including, California, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, New York, and New Jersey.  

PUSHTOSTART was launched in 2013 by Chattanooga attorney Scott Maucere to provide a first-of-its-kind legal product for startups and entrepreneurs. 

PUSHTOSTART provides curated legal representation with for startups using "revolutionary approaches." There are no hourly rates for any of the services in the PUSHTOSTART Program. Instead, clients pay one price for an entire year of representation, which covers the comprehensive needs of startups and early-growth companies. Pricing is predictable, fair, and better than current options, said officials. 

In addition, the elite PUSHTOSTART attorneys focus on crafting legal solutions for startups that optimize their chances to raise funds from venture capital firms or angel investors. 

“So many times startups aren’t prepared for what investors are looking for in making an investment,” says founder and CEO Mr. Maucere. “PUSHTOSTART is able to structure and position the startup to look attractive to the investors and to help close capital raises. PUSHTOSTART focuses on making the startup investor-friendly from day one. Expanding nationally is a logical extension of this. Our increased presence will provide better service to clients as well as a better collection of knowledge and connections.”

PUSHTOSTART’s goal is to become the premiere name in startup law. “We want to be the go-to brand for startups in the U.S.,” says Mr. Maucere. “We think the market opportunity is there. When an entrepreneur looks for an attorney to work with, we want them to automatically think of PUSHTOSTART.” 

Mr. Maucere says PUSHTOSTART plans to be available in every state within the year.  

While not a law firm, PUSHTOSTART legal services are provided by a collective of entrepreneurial, independent attorneys across the country. 

PUSHTOSTART may be found on the Internet at www.pushtostart.it, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
