PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE EVENT DESCRIPTION. This event is organized by Action Spot. Our meetup group is collaborating by promoting this event. There is a cover charge for this event. In order to attend, please register and pay here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/morrison-foerster-speaker-series-most-common-legal-mistakes-of-startup-entrepreneurs-tickets-50410908384?discount=IDEA-TO-IPO Our meetup members get 25% OFF! Use promo code: IDEA-TO-IPO DO NOT RSVP ON OUR MEETUP SITE. When legal issues rear their ugly head, many entrepreneurs put them off and hope that they'll be resolved somewhere down the road. Entrepreneurs have enough things to worry about, from developing a proof of concept to hiring the first employees; the life of a startup is incredibly busy. Moreover, with all of these demands on an entrepreneur's time, legal matters can slip through the cracks. In a misguided effort to save on expenses, many entrepreneurs hire inexperienced legal counsel or rely on the advice of friends, relatives, and co-workers. In doing so, the entrepreneur denies themselves the experience and legal expertise that can help them avoid many legal problems now and later on. Consider attending this session to learn more on what are most common pitfalls such as: - Not Defining a Founder Agreement - Not Forming the Business under a Legal Structure - Not Having Good Standard Form Contracts In Your Favor - Not Protecting Intellectual Property - Not Having the Right Legal Counsel In this session delivered by Morrison&Foerster we will cover this topic and much more.

The firm also represented SoftBank, a longtime client, in Alibaba's U.S. IPO—the largest IPO in history—and in the carve-out and restructuring of Alibaba's financial services businesses in preparation for the IPO Mofo is working with emerging companies and startups and speaking engagement at ActionSpot is great representation of such effort.
