Common Legal Issues for Startups

14 November 2017

Time: 6:00 - 6:45pm
Venue: Career and Enterprise InQubate students, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS

Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers (in fact these entrepreneurs will be students), and may not know the full extent of the law. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in the areas of business formation and structuring, employment and intellectual property protection.

  • Setting up a company: Is it required? When and how should an individual organise and structure their business?
  • Intellectual Property: What is IP? How is protected? IP as an asset.
  • Employment and interacting with third Parties: Brief overview of employment contracts (linking to ownership of IP).
