Laws govern the way we live. Laws also govern the way we do business. From the moment we become entrepreneurs and sign a legal document creating our company, we enter the world of business law. As our company grows we face a multitude of legal issues such as signing leases, hiring employees, subcontracting work with other entrepreneurs, and protecting our intellectual property just to name a few. The list is long and law can be complicated.

Christa Cook, an attorney with Bond, Schoeneck & King, will shed light on three important legal topics for women business owners. The presentation will highlight what laws women entrepreneurs need to be aware of as they develop and grow their companies; the importance of, and components of, business contracts with vendors, customers, and employees; and the laws related to hiring employees vs. independent contractors. You'll also receive a legal resource list to help you in the future.

You are guaranteed to walk away with valuable legal advice to strengthen your knowledge and protect your company. Don't miss this unique opportunity to garner legal advice from an experienced attorney dedicated to assisting small businesses.
