BLIP provides routine and first-impression legal support and business guidance to startups, including incorporations, contract drafting, web documentation, intellectual property protection, government and other policy advocacy and litigation support. Over the past two years, BLIP has served more than 100 clients who are advancing technology, the social good and environmentally-friendly ventures in Brooklyn. BLIP grew out of the recognition that the Internet and digital technology are forcing law and policy beyond traditional legal structures and strictures, and that we need to train a new generation of lawyers equipped to confront the changing needs of tech-oriented clients and a tech-oriented world. There is a profound need for a new generation of advocates who understand the nature of political and regulatory processes but also appreciate the needs of entrepreneurs whose ideas might be stifled by existing law and policy. Jonathan provides that training and support to Brooklyn.
