Considerations When Hiring and Firing Your First Employee

In the second session of our Summer Series, members of Lane Powell’s Labor & Employment team, Courtney McFate and Brenna McLaughlin, will discuss the risks of misclassifying workers, and the difference between a volunteer, an independent contractor, an “intern,” and an employee. They’ll also provide some insight into Oregon’s final paycheck law and the pitfalls of not paying your employees on time. Lane Powell corporate attorneys, Allison Jacobsen, Brandon Mahrt, and Joe Cerne, will supplement this discussion with a summary of key equity compensation topics to keep in mind when onboarding your team.

Startups & Emerging Companies Summer Series – Growing Your Business the Right Way

Lane Powell is pleased to launch its Startups & Emerging Companies Summer Series, an educational and engaging summer program where entrepreneurs, executives, and investors can come to learn, connect, and grow. Educational topics will range from entity formation all the way to preparing for an M&A exit with each of the three events geared towards startups, operating entities, entrepreneurs, and investors.

Whether you are already running a business, or are still in the early stages of building your startup, the Summer Series will be an informative networking event and will offer the opportunity for you to learn and discuss important topics that every business should be considering in a relaxed environment. Each event will kick off with a networking social, followed by a presentation and Q&A session, and will cap off with beverages on the patio and an additional opportunity to connect with others in the PNW startups & emerging companies space.
