Last month, LGC presented an educational seminar to small business owners that focused on a variety of legal issues relating to their business. The free seminar, which took place at the Mission Bay Yacht Club, was well-attended by a broad spectrum of local businesses.
After a short “meet and greet” and continental breakfast, the LGC attorneys got down to business and went through a host of pertinent topics that confront small business owners. The seminar began with a discussion of the pros and cons of different types of business entities, from sole proprietorships to corporations. Next, there was an in-depth discussion on employment-related issues with practical advice on how to deal with a variety of situations and new laws affecting employers. Finally, there was a discussion on ways to protect your business, ranging from indemnity language to insurance to protective contract language.
After the presentation, time was reserved for questions and answers, and all attendees were given a packet of information on the topics that were covered. Special thanks to Randy Gustafson, Teresa Beck, Jill Dickerson, Paul James, Darcie Colihan and moderator Tom Lincoln for all their efforts.
LGC is committed to helping small businesses. It will be putting on these free seminars from time to time so that the owners of these businesses can get access to lawyers in an informal setting where they can ask questions and discuss their issues. LGC is thankful for the opportunity and ability to help and wants to give back to the community as best it can.
