Women entrepreneurs need to protect their business and ideas, particularly at the crucial moments from pre-startup to launch. It's important to understand critical issues such as choosing the appropriate legal structure, protecting intellectual property, and knowing how to hold a patent.
At our first-ever WE Legal Clinic in partnership with the Cardozo-Google Patent Diversity Project, you'll learn the essential legal requirements to start your business and protect your ideas. At this event, you will enjoy:
- A keynote on intellectual property and patents, provided by the Director of the Cardozo-Google Patent Diversity Project, Professor Jeanne C. Curtis
- A workshop taught by Jason George, a partner at Washington Law PLLC, will review the business legal structures available in New York, their costs and benefits, and how entrepreneurs can select the right one for their business.
- In parallel we will offer 1-on-1 credit consultations and a legal clinic in partnership with the Neighborhood Entrepreneur Law Project*.
*Appointments will be given on a first-come, first-served basis at check-in, only to those holding a General Admission + Legal/Credit ticket.
