It seems everyone these days is trying to become an entrepreneur in one way or another. With popular apps and websites selling for millions of dollars, making their founders celebrities, there’s obvious appeal in starting what could be a very successful business.
But as Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben once said, “with great power comes great responsibility”; as you grow your business into the next Facebook, there are a number of legal considerations to take into account. One such legal issue is relationship management. In a recent Lawline course entitled “I Know We Just Met, But…Giving ‘Relationship Advice’ to the Entrepreneur Client”, Trippe Fried teaches attorneys how to help their entrepreneurial clients manage relationships with co-owners, other professionals, employees, independent contractors, vendors, customers, and investors.
These are obviously crucial skills to have for an entrepreneur—just ask the famously ousted co-founders of Facebook if they wished their relationships were managed better and that their legal interests were in mind—and with the growing popularity of entrepreneurial careers in the US, this course could not be more timely. The information is practical for both attorneys and entrepreneurs alike, so definitely check this one out!
