Venus Liles
Startup Lawyer Raleigh Headshot
Founder & Managing Attorney
Hello and welcome!
As an entrepreneur myself, I juggle competing demands for my limited time, energy, and cashflow. And after practicing business law for over a decade, I have seen the unfortunate consequences of not engaging a lawyer early enough in the process.
So how do you balance your limited resources with the need to address your legal risks? 
By partnering with an attorney you trust to help determine what legal services you actually need versus those you can do without.
I founded Liles Law to make that a reality. 
Explore our website to learn more about our offerings, flat-rate pricing, and stellar client reviews. Then schedule a consultation to chat about how we can help you sleep better at night.

We used Liles Law to get an operating agreement done between multiple parties. Her and her co-counsel were very attentive, supportive, and offered excellent work arounds when we needed to pivot. Their legal advice was excellent, and even though I have no legal background, I feel like I truly understand everything in the document. Liles Law earned our business in the future, and we look forward to working with them.

I have worked with Liles Law on 2 separate occasions for contract review and cannot emphasize enough how happy I have been with my investment. Venus’ attention to detail and desire to truly inform and advise her clients to ensure the best possible outcomes is invaluable. I appreciate all Venus has done for me and would recommend Liles Law without hesitation.

We hired Liles Law to create our contracts and corporate bylaws, and we’ve been very pleased with their work. Venus is professional and responsive. We’re also very happy to work with a local, woman-owned business that gives back to the community by donating 5% of revenue to charity. Highly recommended!

I have hired Liles Law several times over the last couple of years to help with our contracts. They are smart, responsive, and have a keen sense of detail. Best of all, their pricing is transparent, and I love that they donate 5% of all revenue to a different local nonprofit each month. I highly recommend Liles Law to any tech company that needs legal assistance.

Jessica Slaughter

Extremely thorough, professional and helpful review of an employment contract. Explained things clearly and broke it down line by line for me. Would definitely recommend!

Brant Elliot

As a small business owner in technology, I had no idea where to start looking during a recent client request for a professional services agreement. I heard from a colleague that Liles Law was the go-to law firm for these very specific documents. Venus accomplished more in a 30-minute phone call than I could have done in a weeks worth of time and effort. She spent the necessary time up-front to understand exactly what I needed and delivered exactly what I asked for. She even guided me through the negotiating process as my client pushed back – leading me with her vast experience in the field.

Venus and her associates are awesome! They take care of you with urgency and thoughtfulness. 5 stars!

Liles Law has been integral to our success as a tech start-up company. From the founding of our start-up through multiple contract negotiations, Venus has demonstrated her tremendous knowledge and expertise as she has helped us navigate each opportunity. She has guided us every step of the way, including connecting us to other professionals in her network when we needed assistance in other areas of our business. We would recommend her, without hesitation, to any new business looking for business and tech legal services.

Venus and her team have been wonderful to work with! As an early stage start up that just moved to the area, it has been great to find a law firm that understands tech but also is approachable and easy to work with!

My experience with Liles Law was excellent! The service and knowledge provided to me saved me time and helped me start my business.

Virginia George

Venus was a joy to work with and so helpful while I was looking for a place to lease for my bar. She was great at taking the legal jargon of the leases I was looking at and putting them in layman’s terms, which I desperately needed. She also was great at finding ‘red flags’ in the lease that I was then able to take back and negotiate adjustments for with the owner. All in all, you won’t find a better lawyer for reviewing contracts than Venus. Highly recommend!

Emily Crookston
Emily Crookston

Venus is an awesome small business attorney! I asked her to review my contract and she turned it around quickly offering lots of insightful questions and comments. Besides being great at what she does, she also donates a percentage of her profits to a charity each month. I highly recommend Liles Law.

Katie Vie

Liles Law guided me through the process of having my first legal contract drafted with expertise and professionalism. When I first approached Venus, I was brand new to legal contracts. She kindly oriented me to the process, designed a beautiful contract that fit my needs perfectly, and took the time to walk me through it. With the help of Liles Law, I now feel confident and protected as my business grows. Thank you, Venus!

I recently worked with Venus to ensure I had all of the appropriate legal Terms of Use and Privacy Policy on my website. Venus is an absolute pleasure to work with–very professional but still easy going and very easy to work with (very different than what I expected working with a lawyer). I would definitely recommend Venus, especially to small business owners/solopreneurs.

Hannah Cole
Hannah Cole

I run an online business, and I needed a lawyer who is not a dinosaur, but would “get” my online processes and draft the contracts and language to protect me. Venus was (and continues to be) extremely responsive, professional and excellent. Her contracts were easy to use, with care taken to show me the places where things might change and tailor them to my business in a shifting environment. Her pricing structure is clear, and she communicated clearly what I could expect at all times. She listens. I highly recommend her services.

Vesal Bizieff

I’ve been freelancing for years but never took the steps I needed to protect myself and my business – until recently. Working with Liles Law has been SO helpful. Now I have the confidence to take on more clients knowing that I’m legally protected. It was also refreshing to work with somebody who took the time to understand my concerns and wasn’t just a suit at a big law firm. I wish I had worked with them sooner and am so thankful for their services!

Mark Saad

Venus and her team have been great to work with. Their advice has helped our company tremendously and the responsiveness of the team has been really impressive.

Andrew Fisher

Working with Venus was a pleasure! She provided exemplary service and was easy to reach, whether it was via phone-call, text or email. Our sessions felt jam-packed with information in the best way possible (great value for the time spent together discussing the process of launching my business). I would recommend Liles Law’s services and Venus to all interested in launching their first business. Venus is approachable, enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. Launching a business is stressful and overwhelming but having an experienced attorney and consultant like Venus makes the process that much more streamlined and enjoyable. 5 star review 🙂

Carlota Sage

Venus was so helpful in helping me set up my LLC consulting firm that I’ve recommended her to some of my technology clients. She responds quickly but with very thoughtful answers. Her depth of knowledge around technology in general, and security and compliance in particular, make her an amazing resource for small technology companies that can’t afford the Deloitte/PWC/Accenture bill but need someone with that level of understanding. I cannot recommend Venus enough – she has been an amazing partner for my company, and for my clients.

Raili Throndson

Venus recently reviewed our technology services contracts, as well as website terms and data privacy policy. She is a pleasure to work with. I found her professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and able to clearly articulate legal requirements and streamline complex contract language. I highly recommend her and hope for the opportunity to work with her again in the future.

Venus helped me establish my media production business as an LLC, as well as draft my client contracts and website user agreement. Not only did she make the process quick and painless, but she made everything so easy for a new business owner like me to understand. Liles Law elevated the legitimacy of my business and as a result I have been consistently landing more serious, high-paying clients. I would recommend Liles Law to anyone looking to take the next step in protecting their business. Easily the most formative decision I’ve made as a freelancer.

Carissa Egan

Liles Law (specifically Venus) is a true pleasure to work with. She was able to very quickly come up to speed on the detailed intricacies of the software as a service business serving a very niche market and make both contractual and process improvement suggestions. The end product of her engagement has been in use for over six months and has resulted in greater efficiencies and a more clear legal framework. I can’t thank her enough for her attention to detail, professionalism, and passion for helping my organization, a small non-profit, better serve its mission.

Ellen Gowdy

Venus Liles is a pleasure to work with. She helped me put together incorporation documents and a contractor agreement for growing my team. I found her to be professional, experienced, and empathetic to my business concerns. I think she will be an outstanding strategic partner for my business moving forward. I highly recommend Venus for your business’ legal needs!

Working with the Liles Law firm and with Venus Liles was easy, informative, instructive. Ms Liles was able walk me through the protection I needed and why I needed it, tell e how and where to apply it and create the artifacts to implement. I am confident my business is protected now in the near future.
In addition to great legal advise I value the strategic discussions about new business and position myself for new markets and opportunities.

Sam Baker

I hired Venus to to help me with all of my important legal assets. I really appreciated that she helped me first by developing a Legal Roadmap for my business. She helped me understand what I needed, and was really patient as she worked with me to make sure everything turned out exactly the way I pictured it. I also love that she does flat rate pricing!! I’ve needed her advice on a few ad hoc things, and I never had to worry if a quick email would result in a huge legal bill.S

Sam Weaver

Liles Law is fantastic! I’d recommend Venus to anyone who needs any legal work done for their business! I’m a student, and I don’t have a massive budget, but Venus was able to work with me to find a legal solution that fit my budget and really helped my business!

Aside from great service and fair pricing, Venus is genuinely such a nice & smart person! I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have on my side when sorting out legal issues for my business 🙂

I can’t speak highly enough of Venus Liles and her team at Liles Law. Venus consulted with me through an employment contract negotiation, helping me understand in laymen’s terms the various points at issue in the contract and advising me on the legal implications of various options and employment arrangements. She was efficient and clear, and her pricing was quite reasonable. I look forward to working with the Liles Law team again for legal support through other entrepreneurial ventures.

Please do yourself a favor and book with Venus! She is AMAZING! So personable and she makes sure you’re completely covered from head to toe regarding anything that could potentially harm you or your business. She explains everything so that someone who isn’t a lawyer would understand and is incredibly quick to reply to any correspondence, will schedule a meeting with you if you need one, and just really takes her time!! 10/10 would recommend, 100% worth the investment, took so much work off my plate and I feel confident in moving forward with my business because I know I’ve done everything legally right. Very proud to say this is the attorney I work with and will turn to her and nobody else in the future regarding my business!

Kristin Williams

Venus is the attorney every small business owner needs in their corner. She helped me understand and prioritize my legal needs, allowing me to make the best decisions for my business and minimize potential risks. She made an intimidating process easy to navigate and follow by ditching the jargon and being completely transparent. I’ve already recommended her services to other smalls in my network and will continue to do so!
