Common Legal Mistakes Startups Make


Common Mistakes Startups Make from a Legal Perspective

Sponsored by Drexel University Sacramento

DCourse Description:

Please join Tim Harris of Morrison & Foerster LLP for a lively discussion of the most common mistakes that startups make from a legal perspective. This session will explore the choice of legal entity for a startup, corporate record keeping, stock option plans, founder tax issues, securities law compliance, critical intellectual property concerns and fundamental employment law issues.  Harris will give examples of the mistakes, suggest alternatives and discuss market customs and practices.  Audiences that have heard his talk in the past have avoided countless headaches and thousands of dollars in remediation costs. Tim’s presentation will be followed by a panel of startup founders who will share their personal stories about these mistakes.
