Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
I was a Primary Emissions Broker with one of the major houses. I am now starting a Carbon Emissions Brokerage and an Electronic Trading Platform to facilitate the trading of forward contracts in Emission Offset Credits. These are assets such as CER’s, ERU’s and VER’s, but in their primary form.

I have listed the legal work I need below. If you feel that you can complete some of it, but not all, please just bid for the parts that you feel would suit your experience. I am happy to use multiple providers.

1. I need to ensure the business isn’t going to break any regulations or any laws in what it actually does and the relationships it has with regulated entities. I am pretty sure I am not covered by FSMA 2000, but I might be covered on something like Mifid and need to be sure.
2. I need to get a shareholder agreement drawn up.
3. I need some help in adjusting the existing brokerage contracts I have from other firms, for use within my firm, plus NDA's and Non Circ's.
4. I am going to need some help in drafting terms and conditions for the electronic platform we are currently building.
5. I need some advice on applying for patents and trademarks with regard to the platform and subsequently need assistance in applying for the patents and trade marks.
6. I am going to need some help standardising ERPA Agreements (Emission Reduction Purchase Agreements) into four standard categories.

This work will more than likely lead to further opportunities within the business.

I have defined my policy on payment in the early stage of the business as “frugal, but fair with considerably upside”. I should be able to achieve this because there is a considerable amount of legal work involved in transacting credits and as such, the role or work has the potential to move from development to transactory, where of course there is a lot more money.

As such, both the scope and scale of the work and earnings available are likely to increase substantially. Some equity participation could also be an option.

Please bid on per hour rates. You might also want to “hazard” a guess as to how long the constituent parts or the whole may take in billable hours, though I appreciate this is difficult.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Nick
