Using Contracts to Protect Small Business and Personal Assets from Unforeseen Threats

Using Contracts to Protect Small Business and Personal Assets from Unforeseen Threats
Session 3: 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Category: Business

Small business owners expect and prepare to face daily challenges in the practice of their trades, but they cannot protect against unforeseeable threats to the structure and management of their businesses without being proactive in their threat assessment. The seemingly unlikely threats tend to be the most costly, but business owners can effectively guard against unanticipated liability by building their business on a foundation of solid contracts. In this workshop we will discuss the less obvious reasons for certain pesky contract provisions and will explore the common, yet often unforeseeable, consequences of cutting legal corners in third-party dealings. Categories for discussion include: website policies; use of non-disclosure agreements; terms of sale and use; borrowing and lending; conflict resolution and settlement; outsourcing goods and services; and dealing with creditors and fraud.

All programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least 2 weeks in advance. For more information, contact info@sfsmallbusinessweek.com.
