Strengthening Your Structure: Legal Issues for Small Businesses

January 25, 2017

12-1:15 p.m.

Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, 565 Metro Place S, Dublin, OH


We’ll discuss the 7 most common legal mistakes small businesses make and key takeaways for building a better, stronger businesses. Plus, participants will get the chance to ask questions (and who doesn’t want free legal advice?). Some of the areas we’ll be covering include getting set up legally, contracts, employees vs. independent contractors, copyrights and trademarks, what to do if your business is sued, and planning for the future.

About our presenter:
