Sandbox Rules: Managing the Legal Risk of a Multiple-Owner Small Business

Felicia ValleraWith Felicia Vallera

Going into business with partners or other types of co-owners can be rewarding, even life-saving. It can also be one of the riskiest business and legal moves you ever make. Felicia Vallera, an attorney in private practice in the San Francisco Financial District will share tips on how to avoid legal fees caused by misunderstandings among business owners.

Disputes among co-owners of closely-held small businesses, whether partnerships, LLC's, or corporations, can strain your customer and supplier relationships, cripple your cash flow, taint your credit rating and business reputation, and otherwise irreparably harm the value of the business you have worked so hard to build. Even without disputes, how do you prevent one owner's death, medical disability, family leave, divorce and community property battle, personal financial woes, or decision to leave the business from shutting you down?

Attend this session and learn from an expert how to avoid some of the most common pitfalls entrepreneurs who share business ownership face.
