STARTUPS AND SEED FUNDING
Beginning a startup is exciting and consuming. There are also many legal perils that startups face. Entrepreneurs need to be focused on building their businesses, not learning how to practice law. Accordingly, Jason Putnam Gordon can assist startups with areas as diverse as the following. First, what is the best business formation for a startup. The law firm can help startup entrepreneurs choose between California, Delaware, and other states for incorporation as well as the formation of the company itself, as for example an LLC or a ‘C’ corporation. Second, the law firm can help startups understand and create founders’ agreements and stock for key employees. Next, as is indicated by this upcoming webinar, the law firm can advise on funding strategies such as IPO’s, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Seed Funding issues (which are not, of course, mutually exclusive). Indeed, on the issue of mergers and acquisitions, see http://www.putnamgordon.com/practice-areas/top-san-francisco-mergers-and-acquisitions-attorneys/.
Finally, the law firm can advise on intellectual property – issues such as trade secrets, copyright, and patent issues. No two startups are alike, so interested parties are urged to participate in the upcoming webinar and/or reach out for a consultation with a firm attorney. (Startups need not be based in Silicon Valley or the San Francisco Bay Area).
