Stop sifting through legal jargon on the internet or poking around Google for things like, “What to do if a client sues me,” and just grab the Legally Locked In Toolkit.

And since we’re updating it with the most current information on website cookies, GDPR compliance and copyright implications with ChatGPT, you can save $500 for a limited time!

Get started for as little as $124.45 when you pick one of our flexible payment options.

On the flipside, if you continue on as is, you’ll stress, worry, look over your shoulder, and hope and pray that nothing goes wrong. This is not a boss move.


Inside the Legally Locked In Toolkit, you’ll learn:


Your Business Structure: Get in Formation

What type of entity will save you the most money on your taxes? How can you legally separate your business assets from your personal ones and protect those personal assets if your business fails or loses in a lawsuit and can’t pay its debts?

Learn the pros and cons of each type of entity, discover what documents you need in hand when forming an entity, and discover the biggest mistakes people make when registering a DBA (Doing Business As) or a trade name.

"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.

"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!"

— Meagan S.


Your Website: Is Your Website Legal?

Does your website have a privacy policy? (It better or you could end up with a huge fine and banned from Google and Facebook.) Do you need a cookies policy? What about GDPR compliance? Isn’t that just for the European Union?

Learn whether GDPR compliance is something you need to not. Learn what the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) is and whether you need to worry about it or not. Find out how to protect the IP on your site and how to stay out of trouble with the FTC. Also, discover what images you can freely use and what you have to be mindful of when selecting your fonts.

"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.”

— Elina R

"Nakia is a gem. She knows her stuff and she knows what she’s doing. And for me, I love that she’s a Black, female small business owner herself. She was able to help me out of a jam AND still make me feel confident about my brand and the business I was creating. She’s awesome and is my go-to attorney in times of need."

— Elina R


Your Contracts: Protecting Yourself with Contracts

Do you know which contracts you need for your business and which you don’t? Most people think they only need to worry about having their clients sign a contract, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

What about your employees or independent contractors? What about that graphic designer you hired or the photographer that’s doing your photoshoot? What about your mentor who just invited you to be a guest on their podcast? What about when you’re bartering with someone? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Every business relationship requires a written agreement. But not just any old agreement will work. Learn the must-have terms and clauses you need to include in your contracts and which contracts you need.

Luckily, I’ve done all the legwork for you and when you grab this toolkit, you get access to 15 of my most popular, lawyer-drafted, fill-in-the-blank contract templates that you can customize and fire off whenever you need.

“If you are looking to grow your business, to have someone who you can share your thoughts and ideas with who has the business sense and also the legal background, who knows what needs to be done and can advise you on the best way to do it, then Nakia is for you. And the way she packages things, makes it affordable for a person to get the level of expertise they need.”

— Dr. Fredrica

“For me, having good contracts and legal peace of mind is more important than a fancy website or anything else.”

— Christine H.


Your Copyrights

You found the perfect image on Pinterest for the book you’re self-publishing. The image works great with your message, the colors match your brand, it’s good to go. So, you use it. Then you get a cease and desist letter telling you the image belongs to someone else and you must stop using it or face legal action.

$X!#&@*! Can they really do that?! You bet.

Learn what’s involved with copyrights, what you need to do to protect your content and what can happen if you use somebody else’s.

We’ll also cover copyright implications and ChatGPT, the thin line between fair use and copyright infringement AND what action you can take if you find out that someone has stolen your content.

“Nakia knows her stuff. She’s accessible, professional, knowledgeable and down to earth. She has a wealth of information and her team is on point. They’re always available and everyone keeps you in the loop. Working with Nakia has been great, and as a small business owner, it’s so important to build a team of trusted professionals.”

— Jody D.


Your Trademarks

Is your brand ready for a trademark? How do you know? What’s the difference between a copyright and a trademark?

Maybe you’ve landed on the perfect name for your business. So, you hire a designer to create a logo, buy the domain name, and create a Facebook group. Then a few months later, you get an email telling you need to change your name because the name you’re using is already trademarked?! (Yep, it happens all the time and ends up costing entrepreneurs thousands of dollars in the long run.)

Instead of getting stuck in a nightmare situation like that, learn how to easily conduct a thorough trademark search so that you can feel confident that the name you picked is available.

Learn my best tips for filing your trademark application, a list of the trademark FAQs I get asked all the time and my take on how to use trademarks to your advantage.

“When I signed up for Nakia’s trademark course, I had my doubts. I thought it would be hard to understand without a law degree, and I worried that the material would be more “general” information rather than actual “this is how you do it.” Fortunately, I was wrong about both.”

— Ta Neil Adams

“Nakia is simply the best. Her passion for Trademarking in the RIGHT way shines through in.  She is concise but informative; friendly but firm; and she delivers this information in a way that sinks into your brain.  To see how her brain works and to see all the industry knowledge she possesses, the best decision for me was to hire her!”

— Wendy M.

BONUS: Hiring a Team Member

You’re ready to hire – woohoo! – but do you know what types of clauses and disclosures you need in your contracts to protect your business?

Misclassifying an independent contractor or an employee can land you you in an IRS nightmare (with a hefty fine).

Get the best tips for hiring and learn the legal implications that go along with it.


“Nakia cares about her clients and about making sure that business owners are up-to-date and aware of all the legal things they need to have in place to run a successful business.

Not only that, but Nakia makes sure that business owners get the biggest and best bang for their buck, and is committed to doing things right the first time so that her clients can go off and prosper. That’s Nakia in a nutshell. So, it’s no surprise that this course over-delivers on all levels.”

"Nakia is an innovative, insightful, and creative thinker. Her motivated spirit is infectious. It's no wonder that her guidance has led many--including myself--to find great success doing the work we love! I highly recommend her programs.”

— Sabrina T.

“Nakia treats your business with care as if it were her own. She is very personable and makes you feel validated and important. Other lawyers can be pretentious, unavailable, and treat you like just another file. This Firm is honest and they care about the success of your business and filings. The price of not hiring this team is much greater than the financial investment.”

— Tatum A.

Meet the Creator of the Legally Locked In Toolkit

I’m Nakia Gray, Esq,

an intellectual property attorney, business coach, podcast host of Build Your Own Table, published author, and founder of Locked & Lawyered®, a modern law firm that helps digital entrepreneurs build profitable and protected brands that create generational wealth.

And let me level with you. I have worked with tens of thousands of entrepreneurs over the last 10 years and I’ve made most of my money because people didn’t know the stuff that is in the Legally Locked In Toolkit.

Most of the time, my clients are paying me 3 or 4 times what they would have paid me in the beginning and I don’t want that to be you.

See, for most people when they start out, they don’t know the legal ins and outs that go with starting a business … and I’m guessing you’re the same.

You might not know that using any old image off Google or Pinterest is a no-no and could lead to copyright infringement. You might not know why GDPR compliance matters and how much it could cost you if you’re not compliant. You might not know that when you hire someone to create something for your business that that person owns the rights to their creation until they sign a Work for Hire Agreement. And the list goes on.

You don’t know what you don’t know...

and that's why I've made the Legally Locked In Toolkit so that you will know these things.

And with all the changes to copyright law recently with ChatGPT, I’m updating the entire toolkit, so for a limited time, you can save $500 on it.

"Do it!!! Sign up now. You will not be disappointed. The information, support, and encouragement you will receive is priceless.”

— M. Lockard

I haven’t been in business that long. Isn’t it too soon for me to need all of this protection?

Not at all. If you’re just starting out, there is no more perfect time for you to lay a proper foundation for business than right now! Investing time and money into doing things the right way from the beginning will save you so much time and money in the long run. Trust me, I’ve made a whole lot of money from clients who have to hire me to fix things they didn’t do right from the very beginning.

Will this cover all of my legal needs or will I need a lawyer?

This toolkit really has everything you need to give yourself a strong foundation, and get the majority of your legal affairs in order.

We will gladly steer you in the right direction.

Can these templates be used in any state or country?
