Lessons Learned: How to Dodge Legal Landmines

Thursday, November 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By Husch Blackwell
300 E 39th St, Room 1B, Kansas City, MO 64111


Common missteps taken by start-up and early stage companies and how to avoid them. “When is a founder also considered an employee?” or “I shared my vision with a guy over coffee, and now he’s selling the same concept using my strategy and passing it off as his own! What can I do?” or “A founder sitting next to me at my co-working space said she formed a Delaware C-corp online and it was really easy, so I did the same. Why was that not a good decision?”

Start-up and early stage companies rarely have time or resources to think about potential pitfalls or legal landmines that could arise on their journey to launch or growth. Hear from some seasoned professionals including several who have “been there, done that” about what they wish they’d known when they were where you are now.

Aside from these questions, we want to know what you are most concerned about when it comes to your idea, your business, your company, your growth. So, please take a minute to submit your questions online now.
