Event Details

Legal Issues


 You and the other founders have conceived of the next game-changing start-up.  Now it’s time to get to the legal nitty-gritty – set up the company, build the team with equity incentives, get the contracts in order, and everything else you’re not thinking of (but a good lawyer will tell you).  Get the step-by-step legal guide to launching your start-up the right way at TCVN’s March workshop:  Legal Issues for Start-ups. 

Attorneys and TCVN Executive Committee Members, Jim Shnell and Shaheen Sheik-Sadhal, will be there to answer all sorts of legal questions like: Should I form an S Corporation or an LLC? How do I protect the great new name we have for the start-up?

Avoid the legal landmines many young companies endure.  Come to TCVN’s March Workshop and let the experts walk you through the most pressing legal issues startups face.  


This workshop will cover:

  • Choice of entity for your start-up, and related tax issues.
  • Organization of your start-up.
  • Founders’ agreements and buy-sell agreements.
  • Employees and independent contractors.
  • Equity incentives for directors, employees and independent contractors.
  • Protecting trademarks and trade secrets and other intellectual property.

And any questions you have for your start-up!
