Startup Law Talk Workshop: The Essential Legal Documents for Startups

Last minute change from H1b and the Startup

Save the date! November 12, 2012, 5:30-8pm.

Due do unexpected circumstances beyond her control, Tahmina Watson postponed her presentation on the H1b Visa to December 10, 2012.  Instead, Carter Mackley presented on The Essential Legal Documents for Startups.  One can quickly form a company under state law but a properly documented startup needs a number of standard legal documents to establish rights and protocols with respect to ownership and management of the company.  Besides the articles of incorporation or organization filed with the state, there are shareholder agreements, stock certificates and ledgers, founder agreements, stock option plan documents, IP assignments, non-disclosure agreements, and contracts with suppliers and service providers, among other documents.   Carter reviewed the purpose and function of all of the essential documents. 

You can access Carter’s slide deck on the Resource Page.

    Great topic. Do you plan to cover PERM cases as well (Current large employer filed for PERM, want to quit to join a startup)?
