Join students in the University of Chicago Law School’s Innovation Clinic and its director, Assistant Clinical Professor Emily Underwood, to learn about the considerations that startups should take into account when selecting a legal entity. We will discuss liability, management/governance, exits, tax, and other aspects of the decision-making process. The primary focus will be on limited liability companies and C corporations, but we will touch on S corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships as well. We will also discuss high level steps to take to form an entity.
