Small Business Governance

Attorney and author, Kerry Lavelle, presents key aspects of corporate governance. So much of the success of a small to mid-sized business depends on decisions made before opening the doors. Kerry details the value – legally, financially and operationally – of the legal relationships that are created when starting a business and the pitfalls that are caused by the uninformed. He explains the importance of properly documenting internal and external agreements, and carefully navigating the legal relationships formed as a business owner. Proper guidance from an established business attorney before beginning operations can prevent much more extensive involvement of litigation, employment, or even bankruptcy attorneys later. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
