From the start-up by the recent college graduate to the experienced industry veteran who is deciding to “open up shop” for the first time, understanding the ways in which to properly start and protect your business is crucial. This seminar will provide an explanation on business-formation procedures, the different types of business forms, protecting proprietary information and trade secrets, and other ways in which to protect your business during its infancy, as well as after future success. The seminar will provide an introduction to several legal principles that will be expanded upon in later seminars.
