Entrepreneurs with limited access to legal advice make many common mistakes that can result in disastrous consequences but can be avoided with minimal cost. This talk will explore practical legal issues surrounding the choice of legal entity for a startup, corporate recordkeeping, stock option issues, founder tax issues, securities law compliance, critical intellectual property concerns and fundamental employment law issues. This talk will illuminate real life examples of the mistakes (and their consequences), suggested alternatives and market customs and best practices.
