Description

It seems that everyone is working in start-ups today. And while some take off beyond anyone’s wildest dream, more fail or never take off at all. Startup clients, even those who have unique expertise in the product they are creating, often lack experience in setting up and running a business. Lawyers can help fill the gap and help position companies for future success. This CLE presentation will highlight issues in corporate, intellectual property, commercial and employment law that startups need to address.

Lecturer Bio

Dror Futter, Esq.

Dror Futter focuses his practice on startup companies and their investors, and has worked with a wide range of technology companies. His fifteen years’ experience as in-house counsel includes positions with Vidyo, Inc., a venture-backed videoconferencing company, and New Venture Partners, a venture fund focused on corporate spinouts. Prior to that, Mr. Futter was Counsel to the CIO of Lucent Technologies, as well as supporting parts of its sourcing organization.

As a former General Counsel and the sole attorney at a venture that went from 80 to 300 employees during his tenure, Mr. Futter has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by fast-growing companies and the type of business-focused legal counsel they require. In addition, his background allows him to counsel clients on a broad range of subjects without the need to involve other subject-matter experts. As a result, he is exceptionally well suited to serve as an external general counsel for growing companies with sophisticated legal needs that do not have internal counsel.

Prior to joining Rimon, Mr. Futter was a partner at the Newark, NJ-based McCarter & English, law firm where he was part of the Corporate Department and Venture Capital Practice Group.

Mr. Futter is a 1986 magna cum laude graduate of Princeton University and 1989 graduate of Columbia University School of Law. He also earned an Executive MBA in 1999 from the American Electronics Association Executive Institute of Stanford University.

Further to his academic and legal career accomplishments, Mr. Futter is a recognized thought leader in the areas of venture capital and technology transactions. Among other things, he serves on the Model Forms Drafting Group of the National Venture Capital Association, the legal advisory board of the Angel Capital Association and Legal Working Group of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance. He is also a frequent speaker on venture-related topics for area Meetups and conferences.

In addition, Mr. Futter is an Entrepreneur in Residence at the Stevens Venture Center of the Stevens Institute of Technology and a Mentor at Princeton University’s Keller Center.
