The Next Phase of Accessibility: The Trellis Template Library
For years, Trellis has served businesses that are budding, growing, or transitioning. We’re extremely proud of this niche and it makes us feel more connected to our community. We see the business challenges firsthand, and we know just how hard it is to squeeze legal fees from an already tight budget.
However, just because legal services aren’t in the budget, doesn’t mean your legal needs go away. Our goal has always been to meet your business where it is, so we spent a lot of time brainstorming how to help you tackle those early legal needs without breaking your bank.
There are lots of downloadable legal template options online, but where do you begin? How do you know which one is right for you? Does the contract protect your business or the other party? What do all those crazy terms mean? Is the download even valid in Pennsylvania? Who can you turn to when you’re utterly frustrated and confused?
On September 1st, we launched the Trellis Template Library™, our own innovative way of providing accessible legal services. Over and over again we have helped clients triage their legal needs, but there was never a truly reliable option for clients to shoulder some of the workload. That’s exactly what the Template Library is here to solve.
The Trellis Template Library includes basic business contracts, but unlike larger online legal services, these templates were written by an attorney whose name you know. Our templates were born from real-life client experiences. We know legalese induces migraines for most, which is why we include detailed comment boxes to break it down, so you know what your contract contains and how to complete it.
Then, once your business revenue grows, we’re here for those legal needs that aren’t easy to tackle yourself or to craft more custom documents for you (if you are a Pennsylvania resident or business and become a signed client with us subject to an intake process). And we can both rest assured you started your legal journey on a more secure footing. We’ll already be hitting the ground running.
We’re so excited to share this opportunity with you and watch your business grow. If you don’t see a contract in our Template Library that fits your current need, don’t worry, we’ll be releasing more contracts in the future - including templates specifically for creative businesses as well as agricultural legal needs.
