Startup Law: Cover your (Legal) bases

September 21, 2021
12 pm – 1:30 pm

Starting a business, while exciting, can also be very overwhelming. Making sure you have ‘all your bases covered’ can be daunting. Ensuring you have the right legal systems in place is paramount to your venture’s success. Join Robert Graham from Miller Thomson at this month’s Toolkit Tuesday as he discusses subjects such as the importance of incorporation, founders (shareholders) agreements, IP ownership and protection, employment agreements and option plans, and the risks of leaving the legal framework of your business “until later on, once the business is up and running.”
