Sorry Gary, could not resist the subject line. I came across this excellent US based blog by Gary Marshall out of Seattle Washington and thought I would share it.
Gary enjoys working with creative people, including entrepreneurs, small business owners, people who create new technology, and artists. He brings over 25 years of experience in business and technology law and litigation, including computer law, Internet law, and art law together in one practice.
On his blog, Gary offers some excellent advice, as well as additional links for entrepreneurs and small business owners to peruse, putting out some excellent thinking and discussion fodder. As the father figure of a couple of entrepreneurs, I hope they take the time to read Gary’s suggestions and advice, and sit down with their business partners to ensure that they have covered all of the bases.
Like Gary says, the time to deal with the real thorny issues, the ones that you would rather not touch or that could have a serious impact on how you do business are the ones that you REALLY need to tackle while you are good friends and business partners. Not after things have deteriorated and bad feelings have slipped into the equation.
