SOLD OUT: This event is sold out, but the attorneys at Arnold Sai LLP are more than happy to schedule a free consultation with anyone interested in talking to a startup lawyer by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time on an individual basis.
A brief presentation and Q&A session by Sai Pidatala and Justin Arnold, founding Partners of law firm Arnold Sai LLP (www.arnoldsai.com). OPEN TO TEN ATTENDEES ONLY. FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED. Come and hear seasoned startup-focused lawyers discuss some of the basic nuts-and-bolts legal issues that many startups and entrepreneurs often ignore when founding a venture. Hear what matters when it comes to legitimizing your venture and taking it from a mere idea to a more sophisticated, financed operation. Arnold Sai's attorneys will also outline issues related to financing one's venture and the legal hurdles involved in gaining audience with venture capital firms/angel investors AND going one step further to actually obtain financing from these parties. What should be in a proper Founders Agreement? What about crucial provisions in an Finance Agreement? Investor Rights Agreements? Intellectual property management? How will VC firms and angels want to change my equity structure? How do I minimize liability and maximize profitability? Come for an open discussion with lawyers that understand the sensitivities and motivations (and budgets!) of entrepreneurs. Arnold Sai LLP is a full-service corporate law firm based in Washington DC. The firm has a core practice area, however, dealing with startups and entrepreneurs. Its website: www.arnoldsai.com
