Experience Level: Intermediate
I am seeking a US-based start-up lawyer to assist with a social media venture. The venture will involve a multi-state telemarketing operation, with an initial 'proof of concept'/'market testing' exercise across a single state or metropolitan area.

The lawyer must be a qualified attorney, must be admitted in California and be in good standing with the State Bar.

I am a UK citizen and so I am not familiar with local laws and commerce regulations. I need basic advice on:-

- forum issues;
- contract issues - engaging telemarketers, web and ICT professionals;
- business visa/entry matters - i.e. 'sales' visits to the US;
- how to protect IPR;
- laws and regulations around e-commerce and distance selling;
- appropriate corporate structures;
- preparation for VC/external funding.

I will also need to have certain documents drafted:-

- NDA for use with suppliers and potential investors;
- consultancy and partnership agreements;
- website disclaimer and compliance statements, etc.;
- terms and conditions for clients and users;
- investment proposal.

Ideally, I would like to engage an attorney who is interested in building long-term business relationships, is willing to align his/her interests with mine and who can also act as a gateway to other trustworthy service providers in the local market. A bonus would be if you are accessible on skype as well as e-mail.
