The Entrepreneurship Society welcomed some special guests this week, they were joined by their sponsors Pitmans LLP who delivered a very useful presentation on legal advice for start-ups.

Pitmans shared top tips for overcoming legal hurdles. Students were advised how to protect their customer data (Data Protection Act 1998), how to draft a simple contract (the 13 key points to include) and what to do when taking on their first employee (employee liability insurance, HMRC). Students got their legal questions answered and were able to network with each other over Dominos pizza.
