The American Bar Association (ABA) and the Practising Law Institute (PLI) publish a number of resources to assist new lawyers in certain areas of practice. These resources can help you not only put your work into practice, but also find out if a particular legal area is right for you. Corporate law is based on state laws and contract law is based on general state law. The corresponding statutes are available free of charge on government websites. The primary sources in the tabs above contain links to certain free laws on training, resolution and filing after a sale or merger. The annotated versions of these statutes can be found in Westlaw and LexisNexis. Below are other places where you`ll find collections of forms, chords and other documents. You can also use: Lexis`s Practice Advisor, Westlaw`s Practical Law and Bloomberg Law`s Transactional Intelligence Center are good places to start exploring areas of transaction law. These resources are designed for practitioners – both new lawyers and new lawyers in these areas of law. They offer relevant laws and regulations, secondary sources, practical guides, outlines and checklists, model agreements and forms, and design tools.
This guide provides resources for three of the most important life cycle events of most start-ups: training, financing and exit strategies. This guide does not address employment rights, intellectual property rights, security or tax issues. Education involves the selection and formation of a business unit. Due to the strong growth of start-ups, this guide focuses on business creation. In terms of financing, the business is financed, usually by convertible bonds, fishing investors or even crowdfunding. Exit strategies often include transactions such as stock sales, asset sales or mergers. This guide provides some useful sources of information for new lawyers interested in transaction transactions, whether it`s M-A, real estate, business creation and finance, or taxation. To check the skills a transaction lawyer needs, see: . The creation, financing and sale of start-ups are transactions, which makes it very important to understand the transaction and that with good standard documents with explanations. Finding good examples of documents can also be the most difficult part of a new employee`s job.
New employees will not know whether examples in a company`s system contain or exclude relevant provisions because they are not familiar with the documents. Even if the company has models, a new employee may not know how to adapt the model for the customer. This guide advances to provide new start-up practitioners with some resources to overcome these barriers, including secondary sources, primary sources, and sample documents and tools. First, for very new practitioners, take a few minutes and see the preview of the renovation videos on each of the Training/Financing/Exit Strategie Tabs tabs. These videos of the Bloomberg Law refer specifically to start-ups. Law Blogs are another good free place to gather a general current overview.
