Seattle Business Lawyer
Serving Seattle businesses, startups, freelancers, and others on a range of legal issues including trademark, contracts, business formation, contracts, employment, and more.
Welcome To Tyson Law
I’m Mark, the attorney you see in the photo. I help businesses and startups with their legal needs, from contracts to trademarks to employment. Now, look at the photo again. But this time think about what you don’t see. Law books, for instance. None of those. No glass-walled conference rooms with Seattle water views either. No paralegals or printers or post-it notes. Just me.
I started Tyson Law to serve the Seattle small businesses, startups, freelancers, and others who need a lawyer but don’t want to subsidize law firm overhead. When you work with me, you pay for my knowledge, training, and experience—not overhead bloat.
Tyson Law provides a range of different services, including help with starting your business, entering into contracts, protecting your trademarks, copyrights, and other forms of intellectual property, handling employment issues, and more. That way you can get the peace of mind you need to help your business make smart decisions about a variety of legal issues it may face.
Starting a Washington business? Get the help you need to form an LLC, corporation, or other business entity the right way.
Stuck with a contract you don’t understand? Whether you need to draft, review, or negotiate a contract, Mark can help.
Need to protect your brand? Get help from a trademark attorney to clear your mark for use and then apply for trademark registration.
Get the legal help you need to take control of how your business hires and works with employees and contractors in Washington.
You deserve peace of mind when it comes to not only your legal issues, but also your legal fees. That’s why predictable pricing is one of Tyson Law’s core values. Mark offers flat fees, rather than only billing by the hour like most Seattle law firms, because you deserve to know how much you’ll pay up front—no surprises. Here’s how it works.

What others are saying about Tyson Law
I was a bit apprehensive to work with a lawyer. However, when I came across Tyson Law’s website I was glad to see he focused on creative, small-startups just like my own. He knew my industry and the concerns I may have in reviewing my creative contract. From our first call, Mark was approachable and friendly. He had all his systems in place to make working with him seamless. He was very knowledgeable, kind and listened to me. A professional but also a human-being. I’d highly recommend working with him in Seattle or via phone.
Tyson is the man! He helped me convert my foreign LLC when I moved to Washington and everything went so smoothly. He attended to every detail, communicated clearly through each step, and was super professional and personable. Don't let his extremely affordable pricing fool you - the quality of the work and services he provides is outstanding. I will definitely continue to use Tyson Law for all of my business's legal needs.
I've had the opportunity to work with many attorneys over the years and Mark Tyson is one of the best. He is thorough, a clear communicator, and he has a great sense of humor. From contracts to intellectual property, I trust Mark to help me run my business.
Mark helped me review some important legal documents all on short notice. Prompt response. Competitive pricing. Professional. And provides clarity on the often confusing world of contracts. Highly recommended!
Mark went the extra mile listening to me, reviewing my situation and spending extra time with me as needed.
I am an independent contractor that offers design services and content creation and needed help with drafting my proposal and contract. Mark helped me articulate necessary agreements in a language that speaks clearly to my clientele (architects, design firms). He has a fresh approach to business law that made me feel comfortable with the process of defining my contract and confident in my presenting my proposal. I would highly recommend Mark to other creative professionals who have their own business or are thinking about starting one.
As our real estate development and owner's representative business was forming there were more questions than answers. Mark helped clarify the nuances of contractual risk associated with the various approaches we take to service our clients. Mark responds very quickly, and is able to provide a high level of clarity on both legal issues and pricing structures for expected legal costs.
Mark is a great lawyer. Easy to talk to and straightforward. Was able to review several documents for a deal I was working on in under 24hrs with no prior notice. Very impressive!
Mark helped me to go through a contract. He explained things in plain English that I could understand, which made me feel much more comfortable with the process. I highly recommend Mark.
My organization hired Mark, based on a personal recommendation, to advise us on a subset of provisions in an important contract. We are absolutely thrilled to have been able to work with Mark. He struck the perfect balance between advising us on the potential legal risks and the practical ramifications of any given provision. Mark also went out of his way to ensure that we, as a nonprofit organization, could afford to work with him. He was also willing to be available on short notice, and responded extremely quickly and thoroughly in every instance to our various requests and questions. I would recommend Mark without reservation.
Sharp, super willing to always help. Very flexible and understanding for startups and all situations, budget conscious. Recommended for sure
