In today’s business environment when it seems like everyone is an entrepreneur seeking to start up a business or strike out on their own, it is more important than ever to get proper business and legal advice. While a small company may be flexible and able to quickly respond to trends and customer demands, as companies begin to grow, proper legal advice and oversight become more and more essential to their long term viability.

Our panel of experts will discuss many of the key issues attorneys need to know about when asked to advise a startup, including:

  • Immigration issues for startup companies
  • Trends in IP-related transactions, including IP related deal structure between venture capital and startup companies
  • Corporate formation for the startup company
