A Kansas City-area law firm will provide additional small business services with a new acquisition.
Rouse Frets Gentile Rhodes LLC, which has offices in Leawood and Kansas City, Mo., acquired StartMeUp KC, a group created to provide accessible legal services for startup companies and small businesses.
Rouse Frets has about 45 attorneys and works with individuals, small businesses and large companies in the Kansas City area and nationwide.
StartMeUp KC founders Sarah Meyer and Analisa Cox will work in the firm’s new contract review, license agreements and vendor management group. Meyer and Cox will help clients create business entities and review, draft and negotiate contracts and legal documents, including commercial leases, service agreements, vendor contracts, employment contracts, nondisclosure agreements, privacy policies and more.
“StartMeUp successfully served entrepreneurs and growing businesses in Kansas City, and Rouse Frets is thrilled to bring experienced attorneys Sarah and Analisa into the fold, using their expertise to propel our new group,” partner Philip C. Rouse said in a news release.
