Total Credits: 15.5 (Professional Practice 14.5, Ethics 1.0)
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. This cutting edge Institute program focuses on representing the venture start-up 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.

Topics Covered Include:
• Choosing the Right Legal Entity for a Start-Up Business
• Corporate Shareholders’ Agreements and LLC Operating Agreements
• Basic Tax Issues for the Start-Up Venture
• Capitalizing the Start-Up Business
• Employment Law Issues
• Representing the Web-Based or e-Commerce Startup
• Tax and Immigration Issues Involving Overseas Partners
• Financing the Start-Up Venture
• Ethical Considerations
… and much more!
