In the start-up world, legal issues are frequently identified but practical solutions are hard to come by. However, with a little bit of knowledge better decisions can be made early and there are more ways to succeed and fewer ways to fail.

There are many “checklists” for startup legal but most importantly a company must identify:

1) Ownership among founders / employees / investors

2) Entity selection

3) IP protection

4) Employee / Independent Contractor relationships

5) Tax planning

6) What to do when things go wrong

This month Leigh Gill of Immix Law will join YESpdx to present on the fundamentals of start-up law. Leigh started his career in finance and then spent a decade in software development before becoming an attorney. For more information on Leigh, visit 

As usual, there will be beer and snacks! Event co-sponsored by NedSpace and the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN).

    Leigh was very knowledgeable and well spoken. I enjoyed the presentation a great deal. The space was not big enough for all the people though.
