Resources for startup and growing companies are limited, and often the last thing any young company wants to hassle with is lawyers. However, legal issues can cripple a company in a heartbeat. This session aims to introduce entrepreneurs to the most common legal issues faced by startup companies.
In this second in a series of three startup law sessions, we will cover the basics of intellectual property law and protecting of your idea through patents, copyright, trademark, and other tools. We'll also cover classic pitfalls of startups, key areas of business that should not be underestimated, and when to seek outside counsel.
