Recommendations for a startup friendly law firm?

Specifically, looking to form a Delaware Corp, currently utilizing the grunt fund but about to take a small investment (accelerator) in return for equity. So while I would normally self incorporate, create the necessary agreements etc. I could use some help. There is quite a bit of interest in what we are building so I'd really like to get started with the right law firm that can share and support our vision and act as an advisor. Deferred or 'creative' payment would be great. Our model is B2B (commerce).

http://www.mod4llp.com/ is a great group to work with as well, if you are in California. They can setup Delaware Corps, but often startups don't need that right away. Its better not to give equity for a startup unless you have funding IMHO.

Hi Kate, I sent you a separate note as well. As someone who combines 16 years of business roles in startups with an extensive legal career, I, and my virtual law firm, Advocates Law Group, in the Seattle area, might be a good fit for what you are seeking.

My attorney in SF Bay area is David P. Horne. He does not do creative payment arrangements. He does, however, work primarily with start-ups in B2B.
