Whether you’re the founder of an early stage startup making your first hire or the COO of a scaling technology company bringing on multiple people for various roles, it’s important that your hiring documents, policies, and procedures are in order. You’ll need to not only protect the confidential information of the business, but also ensure that the company owns any intellectual property created during the relationship. Employment policies and procedures are essential to set expectations and ensure consistent communication across the company as you scale and grow. It’s also critical to establish company protections from exiting team members soliciting existing employees and partners or establishing a competing business.
“Professional. Efficient. Personable. The team at Meyer Law executed Wavicle Data Solution's long list of requests expeditiously and fairly. Our company was growing fast and the complexity of our work required a fair bit of research and expertise. Meyer quickly learned our business, guiding our legal decisions with a great deal of care and clarity. Above all, Ms. Meyer is one of the nicest human beings I’ve met – which makes it very pleasant to do business with her and team. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Meyer Law.”
