"Melissa has been indispensable in the setup of our 2 Shopify stores. She knowledgeably explained all unfamiliar legal terminology & concepts during the incorporation of our businesses. She informed us of best practices for different scenarios that could arise when setting up our articles of incorporation. She helped us to clarify some Assignment of rights issues with our international seller as well as an Addendum to a Purchase Agreement. Melissa has always been accessible for quick questions via phone/email/text. She also stays on top of new regulation & keeps you updated so that relevant issues don't get missed. Melissa is a definite asset to our team."

"Melissa helped my company to incorporate, draft our MOU, and to design our Restricted Shareholder Agreement. However, Melissa's added value came in her consult. She discussed with me my options, the pros and cons around them, and worked hard to made me feel confident about the decisions I made for my company. When I recommend her to others - which I do - I say that she is awesome and knows everything!"
