Orrick’s startup toolkit helps with company formation and is a good place to start. It doesn’t replace having a good attorney, but it should give you an idea of what’s involved in setting up typical Silicon Valley startup.

How can I look up legal codes myself?

QUESTION:

As a startup, we try hard to minimize our lawyer’s time to save money.  We usually spend time reviewing the legal docs in advance, so we don’t have to ask too many  questions.  My problem is when I come across a phrase like: “pursuant to section 141(f) of the Delaware General Corporation Law”.   Where can I find out what this is about?
