Firm Event | November.11.2023 - November.12.2023

Orrick Düsseldorf or Remote via Zoom

This is the fourth edition of Orrick’s Founder Legal Boot Camp – again together with RWTH Innovation, WHU Entrepreneurship Center and TUM Venture Labs.

We share lessons learned from working with countless start-ups and make aware of some of the most relevant legal pitfalls that can trip over founders in the first years. Legal topics include:

  • Setting-up the Company – early pitfalls and preparing the company for scaling
  • Start-up Financing and Term Sheet Deep Dive – convertible loans, equity financing and latest deal trends based on our European 2022 and YTD 2023 data samples
  • Employee Participation Programs – VSOP, ESOP and growth shares
  • Data Privacy Must Haves
  • IP Must Haves – protecting your IP and IP transfers from the university
  • Employment Law Must Haves
  • Tax Pitfalls in the Early Stages
  • U.S./German Holding Structures – setting it up from scratch and the famous "flips"

The program of the FLBC#4 will be augmented by a Fireside Chat – more soon.
