Business Law & Order
Ann Arbor SPARK, as part of its mission to advance business development in the region by offering programs, resources, and proactive support, will sponsor nine educational and enlightening programs conducted by many of the area’s top legal professionals.
About Business Law & Order:
Starting a new business is complicated: there are many t’s to cross and i’s to dot. The nine session Business Law & Order Legal Series will give entrepreneurs insight into some of the most important legal issues they must consider during business formation. Some of these issues include: proper business structure, intellectual property protection, founders and key employee compensation, considerations regarding employees versus independent contractors, doing business overseas and commercial agreements. The sessions will help new business owners understand their options and make better decisions relating to the structure, organization and management of their business.
