In this webinar the team at DLA Piper (Canada) LLP will be giving us the run down on why legal representation is important for businesses regardless of your size. They will also discuss their new initiative "THE CLINIC".
"The Clinic is an initiative launched by DLA Piper (Canada) LLP to provide Black and Indigenous business owners with free legal education and legal services. We are partnering up with the Vancouver office to provide a webinar this fall, look out for registration details on our page soon.
The Clinic will provide qualifying Black and Indigenous founders with practical and timely corporate and commercial legal advice. The Clinic’s focus will be common legal issues encountered by entrepreneurs and small business owners, including incorporations, structuring, employment matters, e-commerce issues, and basic commercial matters (e.g., non-disclosure agreements, simple lease review, distribution agreements, etc.). The Clinic will also run business law education seminars to help first-time business owners understand some of the risks they should keep in mind as they grow their businesses. The Clinic services in British Columbia will be offered on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Nations.
