Protect Your Startup: Avoiding Costly Disputes

SXSW Interactive Festival

12:30-1:30 p.m. CDT

Gardere Attorneys Leslie Ritchie Robnett and Thomas Haskins, along with Blue Stout Founder and Managing Director Allen Burt, will present on a panel at SXSW Interactive on March 14. In the discussion titled "Protect Your Startup: Avoiding Costly Disputes," panelists will cover common concerns of growing companies, including employment issues for those hiring and firing employees, and dispute resolution for those who are at odds with competitors, government regulators or even their own partners. They will also share their experiences in navigating costly disputes for emerging companies and the pitfalls faced by startup companies.

The panel discussion will be held in rooms 400-402 at the Hilton Austin Downtown. For more information about SXSW Interactive, including registration options, click here.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
