ABOUT ME

Hi, I am Bryan Yusuf and I am passionate about startups. I advise startups and entrepreneurs with over 7 years’ experience as a corporate and commercial lawyer.

Many startups and entrepreneurs do not have access to affordable and accessible legal services. This has contributed to the high rate of startup failure. Startups often start with brilliant ideas which later run into a world of legal complexities that lead to them being shut down if not properly addressed. This worried me a lot as an entrepreneur who has experienced both failure and success in several of my business ventures and therefore decided to provide information to startup entrepreneurs through this blog. My mission is reach out to many startups and entrepreneurs who need legal and business advice. I have interacted with and represented startups in various phases of their growth with clients located throughout the world including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, China, South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe. I look forward to interacting with and meeting more entrepreneurs from all over the world.

BOOK

As a lawyer and entrepreneur, I believe that one of the reasons why startups and small businesses fail is because entrepreneurs do not use the legal tools available to protect their interests in a business.

I have written a book to educate entrepreneurs on the benefits of having a shareholders’ agreement in their startups and the key provisions they should incorporate in the agreement.
