The qLegal Clinic, located at Queen Mary University of London’s School of Law, provides free legal advice, resources and workshops for technology startups and entrepreneurs, with a commitment to diversity.
QLegal coordinator Clemence Tanzi shares that a lot of the startups and entrepreneurs using qLegal’s services are at a very early stage.
“If a business is at the start of its lifecycle, issues such as company incorporation, general awareness of intellectual property rights and non-disclosure agreements are top of our clients’ minds,” Clemence Tanzi explains.
“However, as the business develops, more complex issues such protection of intellectual property rights such as trademark, logos, copyrights, licencing, privacy, data protection, complex contracts and employment become more frequent. We would advise any client to get in touch with us as soon as possible, even if it is to be educated on common legal issues and principles, as acting sooner rather than later is important.”
