Navigating your way through the legal side of running a business can be complex, there will be a whole host of legal areas you never even thought of, and trying to understand them can be a distraction from developing your technology and winning much needed sales. Nevertheless, it is essential that you get the legal side right from the outset.
When you are developing game-changing technology, you need innovative lawyers that understand the way you work and give you the flexibility to concentrate on getting your products and services to market. But equally important is that the advice you are given is affordable and cost effective.
At Mills & Reeve, we take the time to understand your business, your sector but most importantly, your culture. We recognise there may be certain cash flow restrictions which might stop early stage technology companies or scale-ups from seeking legal advice at the outset and with that in mind, we have developed our LaunchPad and LaunchPad Pro offerings.
By signing up to LaunchPad you will have free access to our 'Need to Know' guides covering key legal topics which are important to early-stage technology companies and scale-ups. These guides include information on: commercial contracts, directors duties and setting up your company, e-commerce, employees, IP, raising finance and tax considerations.
LaunchPad will also give you:
- a news feed with legal updates relevant to the technology sector;
- details of our upcoming events which are available to you for free;
- opportunities to attend regular networking sessions with other businesses, peers and investors via our LaunchPad Community.
All of the above is made available to you via our specifically designed app, available to download from the AppStore/Google Play. You can also register here.
