PLSG's Life Sciences B2B Speakers Series:

“Start-ups: Why and when to hire a lawyer?”

For start-ups, it’s challenging to know when legal help is vital to ultimate success. Sure, outside legal counsel can be expensive, but sometimes getting it right at the start can save time, money, and headaches in the future.

Babst Calland, Attorneys at Law, can give you guidance. Founded  in Pittsburgh and named one of the ‘Best Law Firms’ in 2018 by U.S. News & World Report, Babst Calland’s corporate and commercial law practice is comprised of business attorneys who have worked as entrepreneurs and corporate executives, as well as in-house counsel.

Come join Alana Fortna and Ben Milleville from Babst Calland for a constructive and practical discussion that will include such topics as:

  • The pitfalls of going it alone with corporate governance documents  
  • When do you need a legal review of agreements? 
  • What are the basics for forming an entity and key agreements?  
  • What are key employment issues and associated agreements? 
  • How to protect your IP; NDA’s and other protections
