Our mission is to make it easier to start and run startups and small businesses. By matching startups and small businesses with professionals, including lawyers, accountants, financial advisers, insurance brokers and others, and by allowing all parties to communicate and collaborate as one team, we provide customers with a flexible, cost-effective way to address business challenges and manage risk.
Founded in 2016 and headquartered in New York City, CommonCounsel was founded by people who have experience owning and running small businesses and experience providing professional services to small businesses. We understand how difficult and time consuming it can be to find the right professional adviser at the right price to meet the specific needs of a startup or small business. We have at times wished we could get all of our lawyers and accountants and other advisers “in the same room” so they can listen to one another, understand the big picture and provide us with holistic advice so we could make fully informed decisions on behalf of our businesses. We wanted a better way for startups, small businesses and professionals to find each other and work together-so we built it. Welcome to CommonCounsel.
