Join us for our QuickLaunch University Webinar Series: Legal Issues for Startups. Attorneys from WilmerHale's Emerging Company Practice will explore the most critical issues facing entrepreneurs and early-stage companies.

On Wednesday, May 10 from 1-2 p.m. ET, WilmerHale Partners David Haber and Ed Pease and Senior Associate Peter Roth will explore the fundamental concepts around founder equity and founder agreements.

Speakers will discuss:

  • rights and protections related to founders' equity;
  • allocating ownership: what to think about in advance;
  • typical terms of founder agreements;
  • vesting and acceleration: do's and don'ts; and
  • VC expectations with respect to the founding team.
