Paxis Management’s legal team can assist emerging growth companies and small businesses with contracts, drafting templates, reviewing existing contracts, crafting employee handbooks and policies, addressing employment-related issues, implementing corporate structure, protecting your intellectual property, preparing for fundraising and investment, and helping you navigate the legal ins and outs of your business.
