Register now Protect your company’s most essential elements
About this Event
Running a company is a massive responsibility, so putting a lot of thought and effort into your contracts might be pretty low on your list of priorities. But not prioritizing your legal agreements can cost you big time—and in more ways than one. Contracts are designed to protect your company’s most essential elements: your personal liability, personal and professional relationships, intellectual property, and trade secrets to name just a few.
In this presentation you will learn:
- What a contract is and what makes it enforceable/valid
- Highlight key clauses every business owner should understand
- Showcase the essential contracts (or clauses) every business owner should have in their arsenal.
About our Speaker
Small Business Attorney – Business/Intellectual Property/Estate Planning
Melanie Cunningham’s intellectual property and estate planning practice focuses on helping small business owners have peace of mind about the operation of their business today and plan for their futures. Melanie returned to private practice after more than a decade working for global financial institutions because she had a passion and knack for making legal principals user-friendly for everyday people (especially those, like herself, without a family history of entrepreneurship) striking out on their own. Her approach to helping entrepreneurs achieve this peace of mind involves establishing the foundation of their business, protecting their brand and assets, and safeguarding their legacy. She excels in making the law accessible, uncomplicated, and stress-free, for busy, and often overwhelmed, small business owners.
Melanie is a graduate of Emory University School of Law in 2003 and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland at College Park.
