Legal resources

Intellectual property rights, Patent law...

...incorporation, equity distribution. Navigating the legalities of starting a business can seem like an impossible feat, especially when one misstep could spell major trouble down the line. With an abundance of questions and limited resources, startups can’t afford to keep top legal minds on retainer for whenever an issue pops up. That is why Innovate 518, in partnership with the Government Law Center at Albany Law School, created Corporation in a Box, an online tool that can provide you with legal guidance on some of these issues and help you determine the right level to establish your business. Since there are many varying factors to be considered, the information provided is a tool that will help you - not necessarily give you an absolute answer on what is best for you.
