THE online destination for making sure your business is legal, legit, and overflowing with money.

Our membership program is designed to give you legal resources, on-demand workshops, customizable legal docs, and legal advice whenever you need it.

It’s like having all your legal prayers answered with the click of a button.

(psst … try it, click the button)

every business has legal needs whether they’re knocking at your door now or lurking somewhere waiting to catch you off guard.

As lawyers, we know how stressful legal issues can get. We also know that when they come out of nowhere they can send you into a downward spiral fast and cost you a lot of unnecessary time, energy and money.

That’s why we’ve created a space that doesn’t just give you information and send you on your way.

With Locked & Lawyered, you get the 411 on things like solid contracts, trademarks, and how best to grow and protect your brand.

But more so than that, you have access to us, which is a game-changer if you … 

  • have a question on trademarks and copyrights
  • have a client who is refusing to pay
  • have a problem with someone stealing your content
  • have a cease and desist letter unexpectedly land in your inbox
  • have a client naming and shaming you on social media 

You could say it’s like having a lawyer in your back pocket for those moments when you need it most – and you’d be right, it is.

Locked & Lawyered

membership you’ll learn…

  • the difference between a sole proprietorship, an LLC, and an S Corp, the tax implications of each, AND which one is best for your business
  • how to vet your business/program name, how to register your business with your State, AND how to obtain all required licenses and permits
  • which contracts to use when
  • which disclaimers, terms of use, and policies you need on your website
  • how to trademark your business name/signature program/logos
  • how to copyright your intellectual property so you’re protected from copy cats stealing your work and selling it as their own
  • the best ways to leverage your intellectual property so the business can run without you

Wouldn’t it feel great knowing that you don’t have to rely on legal advice from Facebook or Google anymore?

If this is our first time meeting, welcome. 

I’m Nakia Gray, an Intellectual Property Lawyer who specializes in giving online entrepreneurs the tools they need to experience profit, protection, and peace of mind while they build the brand of their dreams.

Back in 2013, I took a step back from courtrooms and litigation, and realized that I was sick of wearing suits and going to a traditional law office every day.

I wanted time freedom, I wanted to work from anywhere in the world (in my PJs if I chose), but more than anything, I wanted to help others succeed as entrepreneurs.

It was then that I became an entrepreneur myself and launched an online law practice devoted to serving creative business owners … and honestly, not that much has changed. 

We’ve grown and expanded our offerings, sure, but our mission is still to give entrepreneurs the tools and strategies they need to build a profitable, legally sound business.

So if you’re a business owner thinking, “I need to stop neglecting the legal side of things because one day it’s going to catch up with me,” Locked & Lawyered is here to help.

What Others are

“Nakia told me from A-Z what I needed to do to protect my business and myself. She’s so down to earth, easy to talk with, very knowledgeable, and gets the job done. I trust her completely and would say that any entrepreneur looking to work with her can rest assured, she knows her stuff and she’s got your back!”

– Debby S., E-commerce store owner

“Before I started working with Nakia I used to think, “Oh I can wait to get my legal stuff set up. Nothing bad will happen to me.” She showed me how important it is to situate your business, helped me set up the terms of my website, and made the whole process really easy, and headache-free. She’s so easy to talk to, AND she doesn’t speak to you in “legalese.” I highly recommend her!”

– Megan S., Copywriter

“I can’t even imagine where I would be without Nakia’s legal advice and help with figuring out what kind of business I should be starting. I was all over the place before we started and now I have a legit business and a waiting list of clients and it’s only been six months. She’s the real deal and worth every penny.”

– Kim W., Branding Coach

“It’s great to have an attorney who is not only familiar with the ins and outs of an online business but who knows about the relevant pitfalls and requirements entrepreneurs face.”

– Eleni R
