As business law becomes increasingly complex, it has become more important for the entrepreneur to have an appreciation of the legal issues which may affect their venture. In this book, Jon Gill guides the entrepreneur through the range of legal issues which may affect their business, whether seeking to employ people, take on premises, protect IP rights, raise finance or realise a return on their investment on exit. By following the issues along the life-cycle of the company, the entrepreneur is provided with an invaluable first port of call whatever the stage of the business. The entrepreneur will then, with the benefit of professional advice, be able to minimise the risks, take advantage of the opportunities, and fulfil their business goals. Jon Gill has an LLB in Law from the University of Birmingham, and an MSc in Entrepreneurship with Distinction from the University of Bristol. He has also been involved in a number of start-up and small entrepreneurial businesses. He is now a trainee solicitor with Eversheds, the leading international law firm, and a visiting lecturer at the University of Bristol and the University of Bath School of Management
