A founder will wear many hats – as director, shareholder, employer, creator. Often such roles conflict and investors, suppliers, team members and clients come with different agendas and ultimately leverage. How can a founder balance competing interests for the benefit of the company and can the founder ever put themselves first?

In this third and last session of our “Law for Startups” series with Shainul Kassam, we dive deeper into the different hats a founder wears.

  • Which hat takes priority, when and why.
  • The different legal obligations a company has to a director, shareholder, employee or creator and vice versa.
  • Where these obligations are found, whether in a shareholders agreement, employment contract, consultancy agreement or the articles of association.
