How to find a lawyer to review an Options Agreement?

by poems_4_you. Posted on Sep 11, 2020    1    1

I'm the CTO of a small startup. Our startup is getting close to selling and I've just been sent my options agreement that lays out all of my equity and their value. I'd like to get a lawyer experienced in the tech acquisition space to review my agreement to make sure its airtight etc. Can anyone recommend resources for how to find such a lawyer? For context I'm located in NYC.

If googling is not ideal for your circumstance then I'd start by contacting local tech business accelerators for lawyers they recommend - they usually have 1 or 2 firms that they engage with on a regular basis and refer their startup cohorts to.

I'm over in London and have taken a previous startup through 2 such accelerators - both had preferred law firms at the ready who understood the needs of SMEs and startups.

My experience is from across the ocean and I'm pretty sure the same can be done in NYC
