Protect Your Startup: Avoiding Costly Disputes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

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 growing companies.
In this third of three startup law sessions, we will cover common issues encountered by growing companies, including labor issues for those hiring and firing employees, and dispute resolution issues for those who find themselves at odds with their competitors, government regulators, or their own partners. We'll also cover classic pitfalls of startups, key areas of business that should not be underestimated, and when to seek outside counsel.
Presented by Gardere Wynne Sewell, LLC
