Description: This course focuses upon the legal needs of entrepreneurs and their startups. While successful startups may require help with complex legal drafting and transactions—to obtain financing, issue shares, go public, or sell the company—entrepreneurs and lawyers that represent them require general knowledge of many areas of the law. The course will consider some of the expertise that a lawyer must acquire to counsel startups, explore ways that attorneys can better understand these unique clients and develop a practice to serve them, and introduce entrepreneurs, or those who may want to become entrepreneurs, to legal issues common to creating and running a startup.
