Chicago, IL, United States, 2013/04/01 - Tricia Meyer, Managing Attorney, Spoke at Entrepreneurs Unpluggd’s Startup Law Summit - MeyerLawGroup.com.
Tricia Meyer, Managing Attorney of Meyer Law Group, a boutique technology law firm, joined Chicago’s top startup attorneys at the Entrepreneurs Unpluggd Startup Law Summit on Saturday, March 16 to share legal insights with the Chicago startup community.
An entrepreneur herself, Meyer presented at the event and discussed “The Top 3 Essential Agreements for Startup Founders,” covering the basics on founder agreements, independent contractor agreements and revenue share contracts.
“It’s easy, as a young entrepreneur, to say, ‘I’m starting this business with my best friend, we don’t need to formalize the relationship. But these basic legal steps are crucial building blocks of your startup,” added Meyer. “You have to be prepared for those relationships to change, and for the business to grow. Set up your company right in the beginning and you will be better prepared for whatever happens down the line.”
Meyer has extensive experience counseling businesses of all sizes ranging from startups to large corporations on various corporate, contract and employment-related matters. She also has a great deal of experience with technology-related transactions, including software licensing, SaaS, consulting services, cloud implementations, application development and outsourcing.
“Because she has started her own business ventures, Tricia understands the amount of work and commitment that goes into a startup,” said Stella Fayman, Co-Founder or Entrepreneurs Unpluggd and serial entrepreneur. “She is able to combine her legal knowledge and personal entrepreneurial experience to connect with founders and explain a startup’s legal needs, in terms that are understandable.”
Meyer provides advice to entrepreneurs and serves as a mentor for several organizations including 1871, Lean Startup Circle and the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center, and volunteers for icstars.
