VMP Vlasova, Mikhel and Partners acted as one of the partners of the start-up conference Venture Day Minsk.
As part of the VMP Legal Help Desk, the VMP team, led by partner Tatiana Emelianova, one of the best legal experts in the field of IP, IT and M & A, answered questions from participants and guests of the conference:
- How legally to "pack" a business / product at the initial stage;
- How to formalize relations within the team, with clients and contractors;
- How to protect your intellectual property;
- How to ensure their interests when entering the investor;
- How to minimize the risks of claims from government bodies.
This experience was useful and interesting both for start-ups and for our lawyers!
