Tampa Fla.– The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) creates new legal series to help entrepreneurs stay out of the legal hot seat. Whether negotiating leases, insurance, employee and supplier contracts or buying or selling a business, each process involves complex terms and conditions that only a lawyer can sort out. That’s why the SBDC’s Small Business Resource Network chapter president, Joe Russo, is bringing his 14 years’ experience as a business law attorney to help current and prospective entrepreneurs navigate the waters of Contracts & Legal Strategies for Managing a Business.
“Joe is a straight-shooter who’s great at presenting complex information in an easy-to-understand manner with real life examples,” said previous attendees.
Legal strategies courses are offered as a three-part series or as individual classes in order to fit the hectic schedule of a business owner. By attending the course as a three-part series, attendees will receive nine hours of legal guidance plus Q&A time during each session. The course introduces legal issues owners run across in managing insurance, suppliers, banking, accounting and intellectual property. Attendees will also learn how to navigate basic contract structures, terms and conditions as well as avoiding troubles of double taxation, hidden liabilities and unwanted assets.
