$ 59 Business, Corporate, & Securities Law In Stock

Business attorneys, when they do things right, fill many roles for their clients. As their relationship deepens, a business’ attorney becomes like a partner without equity. To add the most value to a client’s efforts, a savvy business attorney must master some less-tangible knowledge and less obvious techniques.

This program, led by attorney Todd Kulkin, is meant to give an introductory understanding of some of those “soft skills” that law school never taught, and the knowledge law school never thought you’d need. Mr. Kulkin is joined by friend and client Adrian Miller. 


Learning Objectives: 

I.     How to be confidant, confessor, and cheerleader, within the bounds of ethical practice 

II.    Obtain tried and true techniques to steer your client in the right direction 

III.   Help your client navigate their insurance needs 

IV.   Read an income statement and balance sheet

V.    Immerse yourself in the basics and legalities of business strategy

VI.   Understand the best time to bring in an expert and how to best work with that expert to your client’s benefit
