We feature a panel of attorneys with extensive experience in the legal issues faced by technology companies and their founders. These include incorporation and choice of entity decisions; promises of equity participation in the early stages; protection and licensing of intellectual property; and day-to-day issues such as employment, sales, and collection matters.

The distinguished legal experts on this panel -- selected from the prominent area law firms of Foley Hoag, Gesmer Updegrove, Wolf Greenfield, and J Scott Southworth -- have provided counsel on such issues in a wide variety of practical situations. They will share the benefits of this experience while providing insight into how to work with a business attorney in a productive and cost effective manner.

The objective of this meeting is to provide a forum for discussion of the critical legal issues facing the founders, investors, and managers of technology companies. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session where you will be invited to present your own legal questions and seek guidance from the panel. While not intended as a substitute for securing your own legal counsel, previous attendees have found this forum to be particularly valuable for seeking initial understanding of the issues that confront start-up companies.
