We are proud to be partnering up with Nixon Peabody LLP to bring you a FREE SEMINAR for our small business owners and startups. Hosted by and at Nixon Peabody’s offices at 1300 Clinton Square.
This will be an informal panel-like discussion with some of the talented females from Nixon Peabody LLP, giving us a brief overview of the most common legal pitfalls for startups and small businesses. This is a free event but you will need to RSVP to secure your spot due to limited seating (sign-ups available soon). Light refreshments will also be provided.
Discussion will include (but not limited to) issues in:
– Employment Law (whether you can leverage unpaid internships, when to engage independent contractors vs. hire employees, when employees can be considered exempt from minimum wage and/or overtime requirements under state/federal law)
– Corporate Law (when to form an entity vs. using a d/b/a, which type of entity to form, how to follow legal formalities and maintain proper records, considerations for raising funds)
– Intellectual Property Law (how to protect, enforce, and monetize your trademarks, copyrights, and other IP, how to manage your brand from the legal perspective)
