Representing The Start-Up Venture (2014)

 

7.0 TOTAL CREDITS: 4.0 Professional Practice, 2.5 Skills, 0.5 Ethics

Technically, any new business is a “start-up,” regardless of what it does. But there are significant differences between a “small business” that is engaged in a basic retail or service business operated by its founders, and a “venture start-up” backed by outside investors that is engaged in a manufacturing, high technology or media business. One of the most common mistakes business attorneys make is to confuse the two, assuming that what works for an antiques store will also work for an e-commerce website.

This program focuses on representing the venture startup and dealing with the often complicated legal, tax, financial and ethical issues involved in working with fast-growing enterprises run by time-challenged entrepreneurs and backed by professional investors
