Ask Saul Ewing Investor in Residence Revital Hirsch for her first piece of advice to entrepreneurs and she’ll say: get a good lawyer.
From incorporating a company to securing the intellectual property, companies of all stages would do well to have a legal consigliere guiding their every move. (Think we’re wrong? Just ask those who had startup godfather Steve Goodman in their corner, or one of the 14 startup attorneys following in Goodman’s footsteps.)
And on July 11, two startup lawyers are sitting down for a free chat on all things intellectual property and business entities at MakeOffices. Attorney Ku Yoo, from Chang & Yoo LLP; and Vadim Chersakov, from McCarter & English LLP will headline the event titled “How to Protect Your Business: Primer on Business Entity Choice & Intellectual Property Protection,” the first in a series of startup talks giving legal advice to those trekking down the entrepreneurial path.
