WIPA Webinar – February – Leah Weinberg
Is It Time for a Legal Tune Up?
A Guide for Seasoned Wedding Pros
When business is booming and your client pipeline is full, you may find that your backend operations start collecting dust. While letting your systems or processes languish is one thing, allowing the legal components of your business to go untouched can leave you at serious risk — and by the time you find out, it’s usually too late. In this session, Leah takes attendees through the legal foundation of running a company of any size and speaks to the importance of establishing a relationship with an attorney before you actually need one. She’ll explore every corner of your business from a legal standpoint, including classifying team members, updating contracts, website policies, and email marketing requirements.
• What to look for in the contracts of freelancers that you’re hiring
• Potential liability pitfalls to be aware of when working with clients and colleagues
• When it’s critical to get your attorney involved and legal tasks you might be able to handle on your own
