One of the primary pain points for business founders is navigating legal risk, regulations and laws without an unlimited budget for lawyers and insurance. From becoming “judgment proof” in the early stages to minimizing liability through contracts to purchasing fluctuating levels of insurance for specific risks, protecting a business is a constant balancing act between cost and benefit. Q&A to follow. This session will be led by Matt McElwee (RM Law Group).
