“Legalities for Founders” is an interactive workshop that highlights the key legal issues faced by every early-stage start-up and its founders. The legal underpinnings of your firm provide the foundation for future growth, for raising capital, for decision-making, and for your exit strategy. Mistakes made early on can cost companies thousands of dollars and hours of valuable time.
The “Start-up Legal Essentials”; agenda will focus on:
* Choice of legal entity.
* Corporate formation.
* Issuance of founders stock.
* Employment agreements.
* Option and restricted stock plans.
* Friends and family/angel financings.
The morning workshop (from 8 am to noon at the Davis Wright offices) will provide practical do’s and don’ts, as well as ample opportunities for attendee Q&A. Participants will also receive a notebook of handouts that will assist them in navigating their legal choices.
