Six Legal Tips To Help Online Businesses Avoid Claims and Lawsuits

This past Thursday I had the pleasure of speaking to a wonderful audience at Summit.Live. I shared six tips to help online businesses avoid claims, litigation, and lawsuits.

I hope you enjoy my presentation. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

Notes:

Please note that while I am an attorney, I’m not your attorney. Please check with an attorney in your state before taking any of these legal steps.

A summary of my six tips are as follows:

  1. Do business as a corporation or LLC
  2. Protect and respect intellectual property rights
  3. Promote your products and services through your business and not you personally
  4. Use contracts and other written agreements
  5. Use mediation and arbitration clauses
  6. Use attorney fee and venue clauses

Newsjacking with Ken Hardison of PILMMA

I enjoyed being interviewed earlier this week by Kenneth L Hardison of Personal Injury Lawyers Marketing and Management Association about the marketing approach called “newsjacking.” I think Ken’s new show, “The Law Practice Advisor Show” is going to add value to lawyers and other professionals interested in raising their marketing game in 2017. Also, always a pleasure to mention and share friend, David Meerman Scott, and all he does.

Networking 30 Years Ago and Today

I started practicing law in 1986. Back then, it took lots of work and energy to meet new people and develop referral relationships.

Many late nights were spent away from my family at Bar Association and business meetings. Business cards were exchanged, and during the following weeks, trips were made to the law library to research lawyers and their firms. Once the research was done, letters were sent, and phone calls were made. Looking back, it took a great deal of time, effort and money, to get to know someone to the point where they would trust you with their referral.

Today, things are different. Networking is now more efficient, fun and much less expensive. With digital, it’s also expanded to a global sandbox, with the only limitation being your imagination.
