“Ask the Attorney” – Formation Issues (Part II)

by Scott Edward Walker on February 3rd, 2010


This post is part of a new series entitled “Ask the Attorney,” which I am writing for VentureBeat (one of my favorite websites for entrepreneurs).  As the VentureBeat Editor notes on the site: “Ask the Attorney is a new VentureBeat feature allowing start-up owners to get answers to their legal questions.”  This post is a longer, more-comprehensive version of the VentureBeat post.

The goal here is two-fold: (i) to encourage entrepreneurs to ask law-related questions regardless of how basic they may be; and (ii) to provide helpful responses in plain english (as opposed to legalese).  Please give me your feedback in the comments section.  Many thanks, Scott
