Latest articles and guides

It is not enough for your lawyers to know the law.

Entrepreneurs need to internalize some important legal concepts to make better decisions and avoid serious trouble. 

If you are an attorney, you can enroll for 'Advising Early-Stage Startups', an NY and California accredited CLE co-taught by me, available at Thomson Reuters West or the New York City Bar Association.

You can also find my older CLE courses on 'Single Member LLCs — Piercing the Corporate Veil' and 'Working with Co-Counsel' at the New York City Bar Association.
