Legal For Start-ups:

From the point of choosing the appropriate business structure to the scope and extent of necessary contracts, there are numerous legal issues to address when starting a company. While certain legal issues may even bring a start-up to a grinding halt if neglected, there are many others that are possible to be handled with ease, provided you have the right information to make timely decisions. Given their importance across sectors, the following issues and details will be covered in “Legal For Startups”.

Legal Aspects for Starting Up: What are the basic forms of doing business and their relative benefits? Essential procedures and prerequisites of each form of business.

Contractual safeguards: How do we limit contractual liability? Relevant stakeholders (promoters/co-founders; employees; consultants; clients and vendors) and the respective contract liability mitigating strategies.

Employees and workplace regulations: When are we subject to employee benefits? With increasing international focus on workplace regulations, employees have many legal rights that must not be neglected. Basic criteria for applicability of such regulations and their implications shall be discussed.

Data Protection: How do we protect the competitive value of data in our business? Data protection is distinct from IPRs, and therefore, we must understand the legal framework of protecting data and the relevant international trends in this regard.
