The world of start-up companies is still a very exciting arena in which to practice. Any of your clients could be the next Mark Zuckerberg (although they probably won’t be). In this specialized field where connections are everything, it can be difficult to discern which opportunities are ethically safe and which ones can land you in trouble.
This course, presented by Todd Kulkin, is designed to equip start-up attorneys, and those looking to enter the start-up world, with the tools needed to safely navigate the myriad of ethical quandaries inherent to this type of practice, and give your next start-up client their greatest opportunity for success.
Todd P. Kulkin practices in the areas of corporate, securities, and not-for-profit law. He is risk management and strategy focused, having graduated with a concentration in Financial Transactions from University at Buffalo (SUNY) Law School in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. Todd now serves as outsourced general counsel for start-up companies, corporations, and not-for-profit organizations in the United States and abroad.
Todd began his legal career representing and advising Fortune 500 companies at one of the largest law firms in the US. In 2012, he departed that firm to open his own practice and joined the Warren Law Group in 2020.
He has been honored by the Reuters publication Superlawyers as a “Rising Star” in business law for the New York Metro Area from 2014-2020. Only 2.5% of attorneys under the age of 40, or having been in practice less than 10 years, in the New York Metro Area are given this distinguished honor.
A consummate educator, Todd is dedicated to empowering his clients with the knowledge needed to accelerate growth and mitigate risk. He regularly teaches other attorneys about corporate, securities, and not-for-profit legal issues and is often contacted by those attorneys for advice.
