DLA Piper offers free guidance pack for high-growth start-ups

DLA Piper’s technology sector team has produced a pack of free legal guidance and documents aimed at high-growth start-ups that have ambitions for high-growth and international expansion.

The legal start-up pack contains downloadable legal documents, guidance notes and checklists with respect to intellectual property, corporate, employment and tax matters. It includes:

  • Guidance notes and checklists to demystify the key legal issues that are most likely to be relevant to start-ups at the early stages of their development; and
  • Key legal documentation that can be used by a start-up to foster a positive legal starting point. This includes a subscription and shareholders’ agreement, an employment contract, an intellectual property assignment agreement and a non-disclosure agreement.
