We make tech law easy for startups staking out their next stage of growth.
Our job at Stake is to provide the legal counsel & support on the areas of tech law every startup needs to be aware of.
We can partner with you to build out your IP portfolio to protect things like your inventions, brands, and content.
We can provide the legal support you need thorough the legal side of entrepreneurship, ranging from formation to brand defense.
Get contracts (like NDAs) you receive reviewed and find out if they’re OK to sign. We can also negotiate them for you if they’re not ready to sign or even build new ones for you.
Whether you’re licensing your intellectual property or getting acquired, we are able to provide the IP & tech legal support needed.
When it comes time to defend your turf, we’re here to fight hard for you.
We work in most industries, but Stake’s sweet spots are in space and tech. Stake is a great fit if you’re creating in areas like rocket parts, satellite software, quantum computing, automotive, new ways for people to use technology to communicate and share life together, and more.
Stake was founded in 2021 by Joshua Mertzlufft, a patent attorney with a background in applied physics and entrepreneurship who left big law to work with the best kind of clients: startups.
