Is there anything wrong (legally not ethically) with leveraging the terms and conditions of another business that has substantially the same business model and, thus business risk, that you have? It’s a large company so I know they have good counsel who wrote it, but could said counsel sue my a$$?

lol, counsel probably can’t sue you since T&C aren’t generally protected by copyright (and also very very rare and nearly unheard of that an attorney tries to assert copyright over terms written in a contract). and FWIW, you approach is what YC recommends.
