  • Overview

    Watch out! You might be near a legal landmine and not even know it. A common approach to legal issues in a startup business is to assume things will work out and then deal with problems if they come up. Legal expert Hope Wood will review 3 major landmines in this lunch and learn so you can make informed decisions and know when to ask for help.

    (1) Creating the business; a partnership is easy to create but difficult to break.  

    (2) Personal liability; you might be a registered business entity, but contracts may be drafted that make you personally liable.    

    (3) Succession planning; simple planning for what happens to the business if something happens to you.
