Ask the Expert: Legal Advice for Businesses

One of the most difficult parts of starting or running a small business is understanding the legal requirements that apply to that business.

Understandably, small business owners are often so focused on building their business and establishing a customer base, that many do not consider important legal issues until it is too late. Even for those who understand the legal requirements surrounding their business, staying compliant can be overly complicated and prohibitively expensive if you don’t have the right advice.

Early level support can make all the difference and help guide small business owners build their business from a concept to reality. Understanding the law and planning accordingly can save a lot of time, money and effort as you grow your business, and prevent serious headaches down the line. Come find out what you can do to protect and grow your business!

Each monthly session offered in 2020 will have a special focus area in the field of business legal issues, as well as breakout sessions on a variety of other legal topics for businesses.
