As small business owners we are focused on growing our business, networking, improving our product offerings and taking care of customers. Protecting our legal rights is an infrequent thought crossing our minds.
However, in this litigious society, we must give consideration to protecting our brand name, intellectual properties, human resource issues and copyright infringement just to name a few.
Nolo is a great resource for small business owners seeking information and resources that are beneficial and easy to read. No legal jargon on this site. I have used it often and if you are just starting out, their list of 50 things to do when starting a business is great.
Another resource you might consider visiting Lisensa, an easy to follow site offering protection for your blog content, vlogs, podcasts and other forms of information that you've created.
Still need an attorney? Entrepreneur magazine recently listed the law firm of Bavarnick and Associates, LLC where you can purchase a block of hours that can be used over the course of a year. Therefore you have access to a seasoned attorney for your legal questions and concerns – your own lawyer on at an affordable rate.
Have you come across any other resources for legal assistance for small business owners?
