Description

For early startups, there are a lot of things that can go wrong before they go right.

Having a good understanding of certain legal basics will help you navigate common legal pitfalls and position your business for success.

Legal questions and issues that most startups and entrepreneurs routinely encounter:

  • Have I selected the correct business structure for my company? How am I exposed legally if it’s set up incorrectly?

  • What types of legal documents are needed to properly form my startup? Should I use online legal templates?

  • Do I need a shareholders’ agreement? What issues are important to consider in a shareholders’ agreement?

  • How do I protect my intellectual property rights? Should I be registering a trademark for my company name, logo or product/service name before incorporating?

  • Is registering a corporate name the same as registering a trademark?

  • Do I need to work with a business lawyer?

We answer these questions and discuss other legal issues you may have in mind. But you can only ask them if you attend!
