Current small business owners and future owners are encouraged to join us for our next Business Advice Clinic!



If you have either business law or intellectual property law questions, and own or plan to open a small business, please sign-up for a FREE one hour slot with a volunteer attorney. 

Volunteer attorneys can give advice for best practices, up-to-date laws, and tell you which forms needed to be filed with state and federal governments, etc.

Each business will sign-up for a one hour slot, if there are multiple owners of the business, all owners are welcome to join.

After you sign-up for a time slot, please email Jessica Tabbutt, Volunteer Manager at, the following information:

  1. How many people will attend the meeting?
  2. A brief description of your business and what you would like to discuss with your volunteer attorney.

This information will be sent to your volunteer before the meeting so volunteers can prepare for each client they see.

What is Business Law? 
Business law deals with the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as existing businesses interact with the public, other companies, and the government. This area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including tax law, intellectual property, real estate, sales, employment law, bankruptcy, and others. Business law attorneys specialize in transactional work, meaning they do not represent clients in court. In fact, business lawyers are often hired for the purpose of avoiding future litigation. 

What is Intellectual Property Law? 
Intellectual property law deals with the rules for securing and enforcing legal rights to inventions, designs, and artistic works. Just as the law protects ownership of personal property and real estate, so too does it protect the exclusive control of intangible assets. The purpose of these laws is to give an incentive for people to develop creative works that benefit society, by ensuring they can profit from their works without fear of misappropriation by others.
