Join Women Entrepreneurs NYC (WE NYC) at the launch of WE Legal!  WE Legal is a new program offering free 1-on-1 legal consultations for women entrepreneurs, to help you make the right decisions as you start, operate and grow your business. Women entrepreneurs need to protect their business and ideas, particularly at the crucial moments from pre-startup to launch. It's important to understand critical issues such as choosing the appropriate legal structure, protecting intellectual property, and knowing how to hold a patent.   At our first-ever WE Legal Clinic in partnership with the Cardozo-Google Patent Diversity Project, you'll learn the essential legal requirements to start your business and protect your ideas. At this event, you will enjoy:  - A keynote on intellectual property and patents, provided by the Director of the Cardozo-Google Patent Diversity Project, Professor Jeanne C. Curtis - A workshop taught by Jason George, a partner at Washington Law PLLC, will review the business legal structures available in New York, their costs and benefits, and how entrepreneurs can select the right one for their business. In addition to the main program, the following opportunities will also be available: - 1-on-1 free legal consultations with lawyers from NYC's top law firms (must register for General Admission + Legal ticket)* - 1-on-1 free credit consultations with certified financial advisors (must register for General Admission + Credit ticket)* *Appointments will be given on a first-come, first-served basis at check-in, only to those holding a General Admission + Legal/Credit ticket.
