The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: How to sort your startup legals

Wednesday 5 July 2023 - 11.00-13.00


An ON Helix Fringe event


So you’ve nailed the pitch deck, recruited an epic team, built your brand and have perhaps even started to sell but somehow, you haven’t got your head around exactly what legal documents you need, or why. Or perhaps you’ve started to think about it but have become unstuck with endless legal jargon. Join this One Nucleus Innovation Seminar with Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP to hear form expert speakers Lindsay Chadwick and Dominique Sabatini from the corporate team of the hosts on:

  • What’s the A grade legal document trajectory for a start-up and why? What can you expect to see from incorporation to signing your first angel up or generating the first cash in the bank?
  • Articles of association, founders agreements, consultancy agreements, accelerator programme contracts – why might these be needed (or not?) When do they go to the point of value?
  • What’s happening externally to make bright founders sign legal documents that work against their brilliant business plans
  • Negotiating term sheets, key points to stand firm on in your investment and shareholder agreements and the nuts and bolts of revising Articles of Association.

This will give you a grounding in the basics and get you started on asking the right questions and thinking the right way, before signing any legal documents or speaking to lawyers.
