About this Event

All episodes of this series (whether live or rebroadcast) will include a live Q&A throughout the presentation with our trainer lawyers, live chat, live case studies throughout.

About our hands-on workshop series:

One of the most difficult parts of starting or running a small business is understanding the legal requirements that apply to that business.

Understandably, small business owners are often so focused on building their business and establishing a customer base, that many do not consider important legal issues until it is too late. Even for those who understand the legal requirements surrounding their business, staying compliant can be overly complicated and prohibitively expensive if you don’t have the right advice.

We believe there’s no better way to learn than by asking questions, thinking about what you’re signing, arguing and negotiating. This is a hands-on workshop, be prepared to interact with questions and answers, and to negotiate deal pointsSample agreements will be provided in advance, so that you can come in with questions ready.

Early level support can make all the difference and help guide small business owners build their business from a concept to reality. Understanding the law and planning accordingly can save a lot of time, money and effort as you grow your business, and prevent serious headaches down the line. Come find out what you can do to protect and grow your business!

This workshop was developed as part of a recurring Ask The Expert series in conjunction with the City of Toronto.
