The updated 4th Edition of THE ENTREPRENEUR'S GUIDE TO BUSINESS LAW takes you through the various stages of starting a business—from start-up and growth to an initial public offering—while highlighting the legal preparations and pitfalls that go along with them. Packed with practical strategies for managing legal issues, the text presents the essentials on leaving your job, competing with a former employer, contract law, and bankruptcy, as well as on the most current issues like clean energy, e-commerce, and the effects of the recent recession on entrepreneurship.
Covering the main legal aspects of starting a business in the United States, Bagley (business administration, Harvard Business School) and Dauchy (managing partner, Cooley Godward LLP) proceed from inception to sale or initial public offering. Each chapter examines legal constraints and opportunities, offering advice on business strategy. Topics include incorporation, ownership structure, board formation, contracts and leases, e-commerce, human resources, operational liabilities and insurance, creditors' rights, venture capital, intellectual property and cyberlaw, and global operation.
