Morrison & Foerster offers a free eight-part series for startup founders, executives, and investors on the legal side of founding a startup. This weekly seminar in our Palo Alto office will arm you with the knowledge needed to manage the legal aspects of launching, funding, and growing a startup, with insights to avoid common mistakes that can have serious consequences down the road. Topics covered by this one hour session include:

  • Choosing the right form of legal entity (e.g. corporation or LLC?)
  • Incorporation process and key documents
  • Organizational matters (including founder stock issuances and assignment of IP)
  • Post-incorporation concerns (including aggregation of IP and creating equity incentives)

Lunch will be available starting at 11:30 am. The program begins promptly at noon.

Admission is free, space is limited and registration is required to gain admission.
