So you're about to start a business...or maybe you're running one already. Good for you!

But do you know exactly how your company needs to be structured in order to avoid potential legal and financial headaches down the road?

Sadly, many entrepreneurs do not. And those who've fallen into the trap in the past, know that the consequences can be costly.

Fortunately, part 2 of our legal workshop series will explore the nuts and bolts of properly structuring (or restructuring) a business so as to avoid any unpleasant surprises in the future.

What's more? You can talk to an experienced business lawyer for free!

Here are the topics being covered:

  • How to start or incorporate a company - the pros and cons between sole proprietorship, partnership and corporation, and their differences 
  • Do I need all those corporate documents? - discussion of shareholder agreements and stock option plans, and how these documents along with some planning can guide operational concerns like responsibilities of management and decision-making authority
  • Employment matters - minimum standards under Employment Standards Act, confidentiality issues, non-compete issues, collaborative arrangements to enable synergies amongst employees and outside parties
