The life of building a start-up business is intense. You’ve come up with a concept and an idea and invested in developing it into a marketable opportunity. The relationships you develop with your staff and external parties both in the early stages, and then once the business is up and running, are vital to its success.
Tammy and Paula look at how you can build safeguards into those relationships covering arrangements between shareholders and contractual arrangements with third parties and also look at the options for contracting with employees.
With a focus on the legal position in the United Kingdom, this presentation highlights the options available to you to obtain protection, the typical agreements that can be present and how certain contractual clauses can manage relationships effectively, as well as some commercial pointers on how to handle early stage disputes.
The talk also considers the best route for engaging your workforce, be that on an employment or independent contractor basis. Tammy and Paula will take you through the main issues you need to consider in deciding the ways in which you can engage individuals to suit the needs of your organisation and your working practices.
