WLA Legal Arts Workshop: Laying a Solid Foundation: Business Fundamentals for Artisits

Panel & Networking Opportunity!

Whether you are thinking about starting your first business or a seasoned, serial entrepreneur, having a thorough understanding of how to setup and structure your business will maximize the potential of your venture. In Laying a Solid Foundation: Business Law Fundamentals for Artists, business attorneys Theresa Simpson and Gary Swearingen will take you through a whirlwind seminar of legal issues in setting up and operating your business. They will discuss business entities, license requirements, having employees, and working with your advisors (lawyers, accountants, psychotherapists). Overarching the discussion will be protecting your intellectual property and using the IP of others. If you are an artist, creative entrepreneur or an attorney who represents them as clients, this Workshop is not to be missed as it will provide an excellent fundamental framework for understanding how to recognize and resolve the legal issues involved with setting up and operating a business.
