Whether you’re a long-time business owner or just starting out on your own, running an independent PR practice can seem overwhelming. Everything from naming your new business to drawing up contracts can have a big impact on the future of your firm. That’s why it’s essential to understand the legal aspects of starting and running a business. Did you know that you can set up an LLC in Virginia in just one day? Or that it can take nine months to register a trademark? Knowing the facts and how to navigate the legal process can eliminate a lot of headaches and put you firmly on the path to success. Rebecca Geller, managing partner of The Geller Law Group, will share her top legal tips and strategies, and dispel legal myths to help you build and maintain a more successful PR practice.
