On Thursday August 30, Stibbe, in cooperation with Accenture Innovation Awards 2017 finalist Somnox, hosted a legal workshop as part of the 'Scale Up Academy of the Accenture Innovation Awards'. The purpose of the event was to make start-ups and scale-ups aware of the legal challenges that may arise in their infancy. 

During the informal and interactive workshop, several Stibbe lawyers discussed the kind of legal topics a start-up/scale-up should look out for, like how to reward employees without paying high salaries, how to deal with a potential acquisition or investment, how to protect your IP and how to use tax to your advantage. The lawyers shared their experiences gained from advising all sorts of companies, including a wide range of start-ups and scale-ups. The legal workshop identified fourteen legal issues for start-ups and scale-ups. Click here to read the entire article on the Accenture Innovations Awards website.
