CW Legal Briefing – Part 1: Essential Legal Issues to Consider for your Business

1 July 2015

Time: 12:00 - 2:30pm
Venue: Campus London, 4-5 Bonhill St, Shoreditch, 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. Led by CW Legal Special Interest Group (SIG) Champion organisation qLegal, Queen Mary University of London, this dynamic event taking place at Campus London, will expand upon these topics to teach entrepreneurs and start-ups about core legal issues that affect small businesses.

This event will explore fundamental legal issues to consider for your business and offer actionable insights into:

  • 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?


Join us to hear forward thinking approaches, gain incremental insight from industry experts and experience a unique two part event designed for increased discussion and networking. Please note that to attend Part 2 you will need to register separately for that event.

The Legal SIG is championed by Professor Ian Walden of qLegal, Phil David of ARM, Tracey Sheehan of Taylor Wessing and Anthony Waller of Olswang.
