Building a new business is tricky. Whether it’s a conflict with your partner, an ex-intern badmouthing your company on Twitter, or a letter from a multinational corporation demanding you shut down your website—legal battles for startups and entrepreneurs are more common than you think.

Join us for a roundtable discussion of the best things you can do to protect your company from litigation land mines. We’ll explore best practices and hot beds for conflict, including:

  • Litigation insurance
  • Conflicts with partners, consultants, vendors, interns and employees
  • Copyright and trademark infringement
  • Customer and client protections
  • Lawsuits and letters from competitors and government regulators
