Essential Legal Advice for Entrepreneurs: In Conversation With Lawyer Kyle Durand

Many small business owners can’t afford to hire a business lawyer to get legal advice, create professional contracts, and register trademarks. But as my guest on today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV says, “Ignorance is not bliss.” You can’t afford not to talk to a lawyer about starting and growing your business.

So joining me today is my friend and lawyer Kyle Durand, and we’re going to answer some of the burning legal questions most entrepreneurs have, or have had.

In the interview we’ll cover:

  • How to structure your business + when you need to incorporate
  • Creating a basic exit strategy for your small business
  • When you need to register a trademark
  • The importance of contracts + creating contracts on a low budget
  • Getting smart about your business taxes
  • And a whole lot more!

  1. He is a great lawyer, good advice, he makes things easier for us and make some moves..You will learn a lot more as you go along the video. Thanks Natalie for this episode,,Well done..

  2. So my blog name and domain name etc. are all protected under copyright? And if someone infringed on my name or courses etc., I can only take legal action if I have them under a registered trademark? Also, is there a difference between a trademark in itself and a registered trademark?
