On August 24, Goodwin partner Bill Growney joined Scott Orn on his Founders and Friends podcast to discuss Growney’s move to Goodwin last October and to provide guidance on fundamental legal issues startups and founders should be aware of.
In the podcast episode, Growney gave a few tips for founders and investors, including:
- Consider the effects of your early decisions on future financings and exit opportunities
- File your 83B quickly and correctly; this is often a misstep new companies make
- Verify that every employee and consultant signs intellectual property agreements
- Focus on what needs to be done first and do the rest only as it becomes necessary
A partner in the Technology & Life Sciences Group, Growney advises technology and other start-up companies through their full corporate life-cycle.
