Every good business needs good legal.
Independent PR professionals leave a lot to chance when it comes to drafting contract language, sourcing legal talent, dealing with back-payment issues, and much more. In this kick-off to the Radix Salon Series, we’ll be joined by Attorney At Law, Britany Engelman, with Engelman Law.
Join us January 25th in DTLA for an informal conversation to share common legal problems and questions with one another, and ask Ms. Engelman for her expert advice on what we can do to safeguard in contract development – and how to handle (and avoid) potential litigation situations.
