About Chris Brown

Kansas City Startup Lawyer Chris Brown

Part-time Kansas City startup lawyer, full-time entrepreneur.

Startups, freelancers, and small businesses enjoy working with Venture Legal because we understand your unique needs and how you run your business. Unlike many traditional law firms, we use cloud-based technology, digital file-sharing, electronic signatures, and online billing, and we like to practice what Google calls Horseback Law. You’ll find that we always supply practical advice using “yes if” answers rather than a typical lawyer’s “no.”
