Why the Heck Do You Need a Business Attorney?

I’ve written on this blog before about the dangers of trying to start a business without having a good business attorney on your team.  In doing so I’ve focused more on the negative effects of using the alternatives – LegalZoom or other internet forms – than on the positive effect that a business attorney can have on your new business.

About a year ago I decided to create a presentation that answered the question that every business owner wants answered:  “Why the Heck Do I Need a Business Attorney?”    I’ve given the presentation several times to business owners over the last year and every time I have received very positive feedback…and a few clients to boot.

Following is an upcoming list of times and places where I’ll be giving the presentation:

February 15, 2011:  SCORE St. Paul Chapter “Going Into Business”

February 21, 2011:  Kindred Kitchen , Minneapolis

March 10, 2011:  INCubation Center “INCubation Briefing” (8-10 am, location TBD)

March 22, 2011:  Lee Hecht Harrison “E-Team”, Bloomington

Please make plans to attend one of these presentations if you are so inclined or, if you have an audience that would like to see it, please email me at jeffrey@jeffreyobrieneesq.com and we can discuss!
