Representing Entrepreneurial Businesses (2011)
Interacting as a lawyer with an "entrepreneurial" company differs substantially from interactions with more traditional corporate clients.
This course explores the business lawyer’s role as an advisor to entrepreneurial businesses and their owners. The program highlights the environment of the entrepreneur to allow lawyers to go beyond problem-spotting mode into problem-solving mode, and recognition of the "business answer" along with the "legal answer," to come up with the best solutions for clients.
The faculty will seek to sharpen your skills to shape and enhance an entrepreneurial business and develop strategies that can be used to guide the business through both success and challenges in the contexts of: structuring a business organization, commercial leasing issues, handling litigation or the threat of litigation, corporate governance, management issues and exit strategies.
This course will broaden your substantive knowledge of
important legal issues affecting the entrepreneurial business and help
you develop strategic planning skills and the ability to effectively
communicate with and counsel the entrepreneurial business leader.
