If you are considering acquiring an existing business in New York, you will need to be mindful of many important issues prior to entering into the applicable purchase contract. Business acquisition transactions, and the New York State laws applicable to them, can be unforgiving traps for imprudent buyers.

About The Workshop
In Partnership with General Assembly
Every startup needs contracts to structure their relationships with employees, contractors, vendors, users and investors. The stakes are high. A poorly-drafted contract can be costly and expose you to avoidable risks like:
Entrepreneurs whose businesses depend on their Internet presence should ensure they own domain names corresponding to their trademarks, and vice versa. While functionally different, in today’s cyber marketplace, domain names and trademarks should not be thought of separately. Each are critical components of your company’s infrastructure and brand that offer valuable intellectual property rights.
Congratulations! After a lengthy and stressful interview process, you got the job you’ve been coveting. While you may be excited, it’s important to review the terms of the offer carefully. Before signing on the dotted line, you may want to enlist a lawyer to ensure that you understand the various agreements that will establish your new employment relationship.
On June 19, Regulation A+ will go into effect, replacing Regulation A under Section 3(b) of the Securities Act. Regulation A allowed issuers to raise up to $5 million in a 12-month period through the sale of securities to both accredited and unaccredited investors. To accept this type of investment, an issuer was required to complete a “mini-registration” with the SEC and comply with state requirements. The “mini-registration” was intended to be less onerous than a regular IPO.
With fewer restrictions and simpler filing requirements, the new rules have the potential to allow entrepreneurs to raise more money much more easily than under the previous regulations. Below we examine what these changes mean for your business and how you can take advantage of the new regulations.
Last week, with General Assembly, Priori Legal hosted a seminar for entrepreneurs looking to raise funding for their startups. The event concluded a three-part series in which Priori’s network lawyers educated startup founders about the legal aspects of getting their business up and running.
