Get it in Writing!

Eric Helmy - Small Business Legal issuesThat was one of the take-home messages from Eric Helmy’s presentation this last Tuesday. Eric, the founding partner at Northwest Business Law Clinic, tackled a huge and varied subject with humor and clarity.

He started off with an overview of what he was going to touch on during the hour and a half presentation: legal entities, licenses and permits, intellectual property, employees vs. independent contractors, contracts, and, whew! where to go and what to look for when you need to find legal help. Sounds like a lot to cover in an hour and a half? Well, it was, and we ended up running almost half an hour over, but only because there were so many more questions and so much more left to say. Eric encouraged everyone to stay after or contact him later with questions, and also promised to update his website with some more information about the topics he’d discussed. His main hope was to get people to be aware of potential legal issues before they actually became legal problems, with all the accompanying hassle and costs.

We had a smaller class than usual with 12 participants, but it let us sit around a table conference-style, and Eric encouraged the audience to chime in with questions and comments. There was a lot of positive feedback:


“Mr. Helmy did a great job presenting so much useful information”

Looks like we’ve got another seminar well worth repeating in the future.
