Avoiding Legal Landmines – Part 1
(This is one of two workshops presented by WilmerHale on legal issues for startups. Each workshop stands alone and covers different topics. Feel free to attend either or both as your schedule permits!)
Starting a new company is hard, but putting in place the right legal framework for your business doesn’t have to be.
In this class, you will learn from experts on start-up law from WilmerHale how to choose between different corporate structures, where is the best jurisdiction to incorporate, how to properly allocate founder equity and how to avoid the most common costly mistakes when starting your company. If you misstep early, it could cost you BIG later, making it more challenging or even impossible to build a successful business.
The class will end with an open Q&A come get the answers to your burning startup legal questions! Don’t make your life harder than it has to be - come learn the fundamentals and save yourself headaches, money and wasted effort down the line.
