Sledgehammer: When does a startup need to call a lawyer?
And when can a startup get by without one? The members of PIE invite you to join them for a great session on understanding better when and when you don't need a lawyer.
We have invited one of the tech startup industry's best law firms to come and talk to the entreprenuers in Portland's startup scene. Neil Nathanson from the Portland office of the leading startup law firm Perkins Coie, will talk about the critical points in a startup's lifecycle where having your own legal sledgehammer is essential. Also joining him will be Jeff Bock, addressing licensing and intellectual property issues and Neil addressing corporate and finance issues. He will also cover what sort of services and counsel you can expect from a law firm and then be open for a Q&A session.
The event will start at 6pm, but the doors will open around 5:30 with pizza available.
There is no fee to attend - but please only register if you intend to come so we can have enough food.
