This course helps lawyers understand how to work with start-up companies. Though it will review and answer the legal questions entrepreneurs typically ask, and identify the services they need at the inception of a business, the course will not focus on black-letter law. Instead, it will deal primarily with how counsel can empower entrepreneurs, add value to these ventures, and consequently develop long-term, mutually beneficial attorney-client relationships.
Trippe Fried graduated from law school at the age of 24 and started his own practice a few months later after passing the bar. He has spent almost two decades consulting with and representing business owners. Trippe is also the founder and president of VLD Technologies Inc. which will soon unveil a new legal management platform specifically designed for growing businesses. It leverages technology to bring entrepreneurs key professional services in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
Trippe is an entrepreneur - a sole practitioner, business owner, and corporate executive - who understands from experience the challenges facing "smaller players" trying to compete in today's marketplace. Trippe is passionate about helping up-and-coming business owners find their niche.
Trippe is a published author, former radio commentator, and avid New York Rangers hockey fan. He is also a basketball player whose talents have never garnered their due recognition (or so he says). After a stint living in Nashville, Tennessee, Trippe finally accepted the fact that he will never like country music and returned to his Northeastern roots. He lives and works in New York City.
Trippe's lecture was refreshing. As a practice pointer and a life lesson, it was invaluable. Learning how to add value is and should be a life long lesson for all lawyers.
