Startup Law

The startup law, also known as entrepreneurship law, has emerged through the merger of many branches of law, even though there is no law in our country. In general, startup law works primarily in conjunction with laws such as the commercial law, the law of obligations, industrial property law. In our country, although the law is still in the process of development for the enterprise, especially the package law service in which the company law and industrial property law are included.

In the Startup law, there are details such as formal studies before the initiative, protection against the law and protection of the project after the start of the initiative. While these are a legal process that is initiated to protect the individual's initiative, problems such as theft and reproduction of the initiative are eliminated. Although the Law of Startup contains many details and articles; the main purpose is to protect the phases of the initiative.

During this contract, startup law is activated in order to protect the rights of the project and to avoid any legal problems of the partners.
