Hiring A Lawyer Webinar Feb 16

The Vermont Small Business Development Center is hosting Hiring and Working With a Lawyer webinar at 12:30 p.m. Feb. 16. 

A healthy attorney-client relationship is paramount to achieving the legal outcome small businesses want and most that participate actively in resolving their legal matters are more satisfied with the results.

Many business owners express reservations about hiring a lawyer to support their business goals. Join the VtSBDC for this panel where a lawyer, business owner and law professor will offer trips and tricks to help hiring and working with an attorney.

The webinar is part of the Small Business Administration's Community Navigator Pilot Program. The VtSBDC was recently awarded a $2.5 million Community Navigator grant to assist disadvantaged small businesses.
