Please join Sheppard Mullin for our monthly webinar series educating entrepreneurs and emerging companies on the key legal issues they face during the growth of their companies.

  • What not to take with you when you leave to start a new company
  • Agreements that you should put in place with all new employees
  • Ensuring at-will employment
  • Getting it right with bonus and commission plans
  • Identifying the federal and state laws that apply to your new company as you grow and complying with them
  • Proper classification of employees and other wage and hour issues
  • And more!
