Legal Briefing – Part 1: Essential Legal Issues to Consider for your Business

Brought to you by The Legal Group

Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers, and may not know the full extent of how the law can help or hurt them. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in relation to intellectual property.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

Led by CW Legal SIG Champion organisation qLegal, Queen Mary University of London, this dynamic event taking place at Campus London, will expand upon these topics to teach entrepreneurs and start-ups about key legal issues relating to intellectual property that affect small businesses.
