Custom Strategic Plan

In 2 sessions together (virtually, of course), I’ll deep-dive with you into your business and help you create a plan to cover your business with the legal protections you need now—and identify what can wait till later—plus, give you the confidence to take on what you can do yourself and delegate what you’d like support on.

Get 12 weeks of strategic & practical legal support to move your business forward—from a lawyer who gets you and your business.

Legal stuff can be daunting

I’m here to make business & law feel like strolling along Stanley Park in sweater weather

Hi there, I’m Czarina Pacaide,
business lawyer and founder of Anahaw Law.

After doing “all the right, legal things” and still finding my copyrighted works stolen, I set out to do what  law school didn’t teach me: make my legal training practical
for creators, makers and innovators.

Since starting Anahaw Law in 2019, I’ve used my almost 15 years experience developing nonprofits and social enterprises to give small business owners custom contracts, trademark filings,  corporations, and strategic legal plans designed to grow with them.

Working with large brands, personal brands and everything in between has made me sure of one thing:

I LOVE working with amazingly wonderful creative business owners like you—the ones ready to use business + legal strategies to start strong, scale fast, and build more freedom in their entrepreneurial journey.

Picture it:

You’re laser-focused in your studio designing the next awesome thing you’ll be producing for your favourite people—no more spending hours avoiding copycats, dealing with unmet expectations, and keeping track of all the government regulations.

It’s time for you to be the leader of your business and do the things you do best…

… instead of getting exhausted wearing all the hats, doing all the things and worrying about not knowing what you don’t know—leaving you less time to polish your craft, make more sales, and build a life you can’t wait to wake up to every single day.
