Legal Week at TechHub

After the success of TechHub Finance Week in September and our Marketing Day on 5th October we're bringing you a week of legal events designed to help protect your startup (and your customers) and strengthen its commercial potential.

We kick off on Wednesday 26th Oct, 2pm, with a workshop presented and sponsored by Dorsey & Whitney Solicitors: Privacy & Liability Online, protecting you and your customers. Focusing on new privacy and data protection laws and the implications of user generated content for your startup the session will help identify where you need to comply with the law, how to avoid litigation and where there may also be opportunities for creative minds.

Cloud Busting! Keeping it legal in remote environments � Monday 31st Oct, 2pm. With big guns like Apple setting out their stall it seems that cloud computing is here to stay. If your business or product operates in or makes use of a cloud environment there are a host (no pun intended!) of considerations. Taking a business development perspective John Haggis from Sheridans Solicitors will introduce those considerations and let you know how to avoid potential pitfalls.

On Tuesday 1st Nov (6.30pm) TechHub sponsors Orrick Solicitors will be hosting Pulling Power � Stock Incentives for Startups & Tech Companies @TechHub. Focusing discussion on current trends in the use of stock incentives by growing companies this event will emphasise practical rather than technical aspects, and brings together a number of experts in the field.

Rounding off Legal Week on Wednesday 2nd Nov, 2pm, we have Protecting Ideas & Innovation an Intellectual Property (IP) workshop hosted and sponsored by with Pillsbury Solicitors. Ideas are the bedrock of business. Whatever you are producing if it involves an element of Intellectual Property (IP) you need to protect it first so you can commercialise it later. Split into two sections (on IP and Non-Disclosure Agreements), this workshop aims to help you identify when your product needs to be protected and how.
