In the world of entrepreneurship, law holds vital importance. If legal issues are ignored or postponed, the company may face critical challenges. Based on our experiences, we aimed to create a series of articles addressing the issues that startup companies encounter the most.

This series will cover various aspects of venture capital law and provide essential information for entrepreneurs to make the right decisions on the topics that they are most curious about. Each part will focus on a specific legal issue or process.

In the content of the series, we found it appropriate to include the following topics:

  • Acquiring detailed information about and properly managing the Intellectual Property Rights, licenses, trademarks, and other significant assets of the acquired company is essential.
  1. Software
  2. Patents
  • Due Diligence, defined as a comprehensive examination of the financial, legal, and commercial status of the company to be acquired, which is one of the most crucial stages of the acquisition process, allows for the identification of potential risks and issues in advance.
  • In some cases, company acquisitions may require approval from competition law and other regulatory authorities. One of the most frequently asked questions are the process of how these Regulatory Approvals work and how to obtain the necessary approvals.
  • Tax Liabilities, potential tax advantages and exemptions, tax implications of the acquisition or sale are important in terms of financial obligations in company acquisition transactions.
  • During company acquisitions, Employee Rights, whether they will continue their employment, their relationship with the new employer and if applicable their compensation rights are also important considerations during the transaction.
