About this Event

SapiegosSeries invites you all to a meet-up for startups and other businesses interested in entering the United States market or already doing business with the US.

The lecture will be presented by Ivars Slokenbergs (linkedin.com/in/slokenbergs), a Latvian-American lawyer based in New York, who advises Baltic companies doing business in the US (www.slokspllc.com).

Ivars will provide an overview of key aspects of the US legal system, which have to be considered by businesses entering the US market – from both the legal and the practical perspective. He will focus on issues such as how to choose a legal entity type in the US and how to choose a state in which to incorporate, as well as the key taxation issues to be considered when operating in the US. He will also discuss other key issues relevant to startups, such as protection of intellectual property, employing a team in the US and providing employees equity incentives, such as stock options.

After serving many years at a large New York law firm, Ivars Slokenbergs moved to Riga and for more than a decade worked at one of the leading law firms in the Baltic States, advising investors on some of the most sophisticated transactions in the region. For Lithuanian companies operating in the US or seeking to enter the market, Ivars Slokenbergs offers a unique combination of an advisor who, on the one hand, is deeply versed in the legal and business culture of the Baltics, and, on the other hand, is an experienced US lawyer.
