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

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.
