  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) November 23, 2013 - Henry Kopf, III, an attorney with Shanahan Law Group, PLLC, is partnering with the North Carolina Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (NC COIN) and Campbell Law School to lead a five-part Legal Basic seminar series designed to help startup and early-stage companies establish a solid foundation for success. The seminar series will also include special guest speakers to provide additional insight and impart personal experiences on specific topics.

    "We are excited to partner with NC COIN and Shanahan law Group for this meaningful seminar and discussion," said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. "So many members of our local community are engaged in incredible, forward-thinking business ideas that can help the Raleigh community continue to grow and expand. It's critical that Campbell Law serves as a resource in helping these entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground."

    NC COIN Executive Director, Joe Magno stated "success or failure in business often comes down to understanding legal and foundational underpinnings that allow a business to run smoothly and efficiently, and in high technology based ventures understanding legal implications is critical to survival and success".

    "My experience as an entrepreneur taught me that the success or failure of a business often boils down to basic, foundational underpinnings that either enable the business to run smoothly and operate efficiently or, in many unfortunate cases, fail to support the business' needs, leading to inefficiencies or failure," said Kopf. "This seminar series is designed to provide leaders of startup and early-stage businesses with a solid base of knowledge that enhances their business ventures, establishes a proper foundation for success, and helps them get off to a strong start."

    The five-week seminar series covers a number of topics important to the success of early-stage businesses, including: (1) Business formation; (2) The importance of incorporating good business practices in contracts, purchasing, receiving, and employment matters; (3) Intellectual property issues; (4) Fundraising and liquidity events; and (5) International business issues.

    The series kicks off with an information session on December 4 with the seminars scheduled for December 11 and 18, 2013 and January 8, 15 and 22, 2014. For more information, please visit
