Darin Siefkes will introduce you to the legal issues of forming a business including picking the right entity, trademark issues, contracts, ethics, and how to hire a professional. Every new business needs advice from an attorney to avoid legal problems while operating. When you set up your business you need to make careful choices. Darin designed this workshop to be interactive to allow you to ask questions to better understand these and other legal concepts:
Why do we form an entity?
What are the types of entities?
Where to form your entity?
Why entity liability protection is no substitute for proper insurance?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different forms of business organization?

Darin Siefkes graduated from Baylor Law School in 2005. Since his graduation, Darin has represented many small and large businesses. Darin’s legal experiences (besides vehicle warranty issues) include employment, intellectual property issues, corporate formations, transnational matters of all kinds, and civil litigation. Before law school, Darin worked in a variety of industries. He has run and managed groups in the oil field, media, software, and technology industries. Additionally, he has worked for large and small IT corporations.

business plan is a tool for thinking more clearly about your business idea. It helps you stay organized and on track, gain a better understanding of your market, confirm that your financial model is realistic, and create a long-term vision and strategy. You will understand the essential elements for preparing a plan for business success. Grant will identify content and format for a business plan--including sources of information to aid in the development of your business plan. You should understand that a business plan is a valuable internal tool, even when not required for the benefit of investors or loan officers. A business plan may force you to think about your idea in new ways and to question the validity of your product/service target markets. It can serve as a guide or benchmark to allow you to track your progress and to stay committed to your long-term goals. If you have partners, it can help avoid misunderstandings. It will help you to better describe and to speak more concisely about your company. All these elements of a business plan can contribute to successful implementation of your business idea.
After earning a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Grant Wilson spent 42 years in industrial automation product development and application. He is an experienced leader of large product development programs - software, hardware, test and support with special focus on innovative process improvement in all areas, and organization/leadership development. He was engaged with all aspects of a business from strategy development to ongoing customer support at all levels from individual contributor to executive. I spent much of the later years engaged in organizational and personal development--particularly mentoring.
