At RIC Centre, we’re lucky to be partnered with firms that provide our startups with unparalleled expertise. One of those firms is Mississauga-based, Pallett Valo LLP. Pallett Valo is the largest law firm in the Peel Region and named in the Top 3 firms in Ontario by Canadian Lawyer Magazine.

Andréa Brinston is Pallett Valo’s lead contact at the RIC Centre. She practices in all areas of corporate and commercial law, often advising both start-up and mature clients regarding general corporate commercial advice, debt and equity financings, mergers and acquisitions, and both asset and share transactions.

Regarding her work with RIC Centre, Andréa says, “Many tech startups jump into business without understanding legal basics that can prevent them from running into issues in the future. Being able to educate these startups is an important step towards helping young companies grow and flourish in the Peel Region.”

You can meet Andréa at RIC Centre’s Startup Boot Camp on February 7 where she will be discussing corporate law, including how to incorporate your company, create shareholders agreements and more.

The event will also feature experts from other program partners to cover patent law, finances and government grants.

Startup Boot Camp gives you the fundamental tools you need to start your business. Get your tickets here.
