In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I’m joined by an amazing colleague, Attorney Hannah Genton, founding partner at CGL, a corporate law firm that offers a host of legal services, especially to founders and early-stage startups, including company formations restructurings, equity, and debt financing, and strategic partnerships, and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A).
Hannah is disrupting the practice of corporate law by providing a platform that meets people where they are, allowing flexibility in their working hours, which is a far cry from the standard law firm environment. In today’s episode, Hannah shares some legal trends startup founders should know about when bringing in global talent.
