Uncover Common Challenges for Business Lawyers

TennBarU's "Traps for the Unwary -- Common Challenges Facing Business Lawyers in Tennessee" covers four key areas of challenge for Tennessee business lawyers in today’s competitive and complex practice environment: filings with the Tennessee Secretary of State; practice under the Tennessee Business Corporation Act; practice under the Tennessee Limited Liability Company Act; and intellectual property ownership in the context of business formations. Through panel discussions, the presenters will expose incomplete and unclear elements of law in these key practice areas and share their “practical and prudential wisdom.” Specifically, in each area, the panelists will describe common issues faced by business law practitioners in Tennessee and share their insights on how to best resolve those issues. The May 6 Nashville program is designed to be useful for both transactional lawyers and litigators practicing in both public and private practice settings.
