In 20+ years of working with fast growth companies, Stanton Law sees entrepreneurs making the same mistakes over and over and over.Among the most common? Not making the appropriate distinction between employees and “contractors” and being way too willing to give away ownership in their young companies.These decisions can be consequential - perhaps fatal - with the ill-effects and liabilities lurking for years. Getting it right early - or at least understanding the issues - can keep your trouble from getting deeper.Join Todd Stanton of Stanton law in an intimate workshop to discuss common pitfalls and paths to success in hiring contractors vs. employees, and striving to be more intentional with your equity.
Todd Stanton, founder of Stanton Law, has focused on management representation in employment matters since graduating from University of Georgia School of Law in 2002. Starting with labor and employment boutique Fisher Phillips, he eventually moved to Powell Goldstein (later Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner), where he represented some of the largest companies in the country. A litigator by training, he’s well-versed in the slate of employment law shorthand — EEOC, DOL, NLRB, OSHA, ADA, FMLA, ADEA, FLSA, and Title VII — and knows first-hand how much sloppy human resources practices can end up costing.Todd’s refreshing approach to his legal practice seeps into the firm’s employee-first operations. He’s most proud of the platform Stanton Law provides for other entrepreneurial and ownership-minded lawyers to build their respective practices while keeping an eye on what’s most important.A native Atlantan and Marist alum, Todd graduated from Washington & Lee University with Honors in 1995, majoring in Psychology and with a 4-year letter in baseball. He married Ashley in 1999 and they have two sons.REGISTER HERE.
