1) Goodwin proctor is super respected and they're not going to put together some shitty docs. I've used shitty docs and it's a nightmare.
2) As a previous poster said, these won't answer the whys, just the hows. That said, if you plan on creating a venture- or angel-backed company, you're going to want a Delaware C-Corp.
3) Damn, I wish these had been released three months ago. I love my atty, but I'd still rather not pay him for ginning up docs. This is MUCH better.
Also these forms deal with low level technical questions but not the real questions a lawyer should be able to help you with: when and why should you incorporate? What is the real deal between you and your co-founders? How is that deal expressed? What are the traps to be wary of?
Using legal documents you don't understand the implications of could lead to to the legal equivalent of software put together by a non-programmer based on google searches of examples of VB code.
(IANAUSL - I am not a US lawyer :)
Most important among them for (larger) corporations: judges decide cases, not juries, making less of a "wildcard" for litigation.
Some states have laws that are really company-friendly, and other states have laws that are really shareholder-friendly. Delaware's laws are, in general, quite company-friendly -- so when you're starting your company, it makes a lot of sense to do so there (because your company will get the most legal protection).
In addition, "basically everyone else does it". Which isn't good motivation for jumping off a bridge, but it is a good motivation here, and here's why: case law.
Lots of companies (and thus lots of Delaware companies) have done crazy things and have had lawsuits over them. So it's better-understood how to interpret portions of Delaware corporate law, because they've been tested before in court. Whereas in some other random state, that's less likely to be the case. As a consequence, I think basically every corporate lawyer in the US is familiar with both their own state's corporate law, as well as Delaware's.
And finally, a disclaimer: I'm not intimately familiar with the corporate law of even just one state, let alone all 50, so take this with a grain of salt -- but this is a sketch of the motivations for incorporating in Delaware that I've heard.
Of course, as with anything like this, nothing you read online is going to be a complete substitute for a lawyer. But brushing up on the requirements beforehand will at least make your eventual lawyer conversations more productive, because you can just cut to the chase.
I would wonder more if there are issues here that matter state to state.
But this seems like a fantastic resource, and I'm not aware of many free ones like it.
I still like the idea though, free legal forms
