From Formation to Litigation: When You Need (and Don't Need) a Lawyer
From Formation to Litigation -
10 Key Moments You Might Need to Summon a Legal Dragon Slayer
As business owners, we tend to do it all. But when should you be your own lawyer?
While you're no damsel in distress, common situations arise in a business's life cycle where it may make sense to seek legal advice. We'll sift through those situations where you can charge ahead on your own and when it makes sense to call in the cavalry. Dawn's pragmatic, nuts-and-bolts approach to legal advice helps business owners get the most bang for their legal budgets.
In this interactive session, you will:
- Determine what situations you can handle on your own
- Have the chance to ask questions you've been wondering about legal issues for your business
- Hear examples of what others have experienced so that you don't have to learn the hard way
- Understand situations in which when it's better to have legal advice and how you don't have to go it alone
