Legal Issues for Startups - The Top Tips
Many companies are not prepared for the legal issues that come with starting up a new business. Knowing the legalities and being properly equipped will help you grow and succeed in the long term and help to avoid some pitfalls that can arise when you don’t protect yourself or your company from the start.
Please join us for an evening seminar with experienced lawyer and Managing Director of Interpret Contracts, Evyenia Walton, as she answers some of the most common legal questions when starting a business.
From tech startups needing confidentiality agreements and intellectual property advice, to retail or product based startups looking for workspace, employees and capital, Evyenia will cover a broad range of issues and concerns, including the importance of doing your research, trademark protection, the benefits of incorporation and getting the right structure for your company.
