qLegal event: Essential Legal Issues to Consider for your Business

4 December 2014

Time: 12:00pm Venue: Google Campus, 4-5 Bonhill St, London EC2A 4BX

Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers, and may not know the full extent of how the law can help or hurt them. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in the areas of business formation and structuring, employment and intellectual property protection. This fireside chat will touch on these topics and more, and teach students about the core legal issues that affect small businesses.

In this free event, qLegal advisers will teach you about:

  • Setting up your company: Do I need to set up a company? When and how should I organise my business?
  • Intellectual Property: What is IP and what should I consider protecting?
  • Employment and Interacting with third Parties: Do I need employment contracts or consultancy arrangements?

This event is free but prior booking is required. Please register via the qLegal Eventbrite page.

Whatever your role in research, there will be something for you at the workshop. The focus of the workshop will be on digital assets such as software, data and models.

The workshop will discuss IP issues and how they relate to academic research and collaborative projects. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask experts your questions, and to get advice about your concerns or areas of confusion.

The workshop will also be the ideal opportunity for IP professionals from innovation departments in academia to meet a broad range of researchers and  gain an understanding of the issues that concern them – and the solutions they have found.
