When we start or run a business, there are often may legal requirements that we may need help with. Often, if the structures are not set up properly, the potential for challenging situations later can cost us significant losses in financial terms or brand equity.
This session is a chance to understand some basics AND to have any basic legal queries you have, answered!

Topics covered:  
1. Basic legal requirements of starting a business –Choosing a business structure
2. Pros & Cons of a sole proprietor vs partnership vs company
3. Importance of written contracts with suppliers / Vendors & what goes into it?
4. Written contracts with customers – what needs to be in it?
5. Employment contracts – what should I include?

After the basic sharing, Mumpreneurs can seek basic advice on some legal challenges that they are facing.
