Legal Workshop for Startups and Young Entrepreneurs

Legal Workshop for Startups and Young Entrepreneurs melchers-law.com

When it comes to legal aspects, Startups will often experience Corporate, IP and Employment Law as highly relevant when setting up their business. The legal workshop will provide an overview of crucial questions entrepreneurs and founders should be aware of.

The workshop will be held by Dr. Victoria Berger (Corporate Law), Jessica Maier (IP) and Dominik Gallini (Employment Law), three German attorneys working for MELCHERS in Heidelberg. MELCHERS is a full-service law firm with offices in Heidelberg, Frankfurt and Berlin providing assistance to national and international clients on all aspects relevant to their business. Part of this practice is advising Startups in their special environment.

Dr. Victoria Berger works in Corporate Law and will provide details on how to incorporate a company, how to choose the best legal form for each purpose and what to consider in terms of liability as a founder and Managing Director.

Jessica Maier will discuss IP related questions, for example how to protect ideas, products, brands or domains. Since her focus of practice is on Gaming and Betting Law, she is particularly familiar with the challenges related to the online space, such as relevant requirements for designing a website or advertising.

Dominik Gallini has a wide experience in all questions of Employment Law and will give an overview of what to consider as a founder, especially in terms of hiring employees and/or freelancers, incentives, social security and employee data protection.

Workshop participants are welcome to submit their questions or make suggestions for topics to discuss ahead of the workshop. These questions and topics will serve as an orientation to organize the workshop and the lawyers of MELCHERS will do their best to answer all of them.

Please note that the event will be held in German.
