TRUSTED COUNSEL JOINS EXIT PLANNING INSTITUTE’S WEBINAR ON BUSINESS SALE PREPARATION

Trusted Counsel recently partnered with Exit Planning Institute for this webinar titled “Business Sale Preparation” in their Exit Solutions Alliance Series. Building a Transition Team is critical for success. This one-hour long webinar will highlight Insurance and Intellectual Property (IP) issues that need to be considered.

A thorough review of a company’s intellectual property (patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets) is critical in preparing for a sale transaction. Also, business sellers need to be aware of risks, like lingering liability issues, that don’t disappear at closing, as will be highlighted by Jim Frazier with Program Insurance, Inc.

Supporting businesses on the cusp of crossing this threshold ($100,000 to $249,999) — and those that have crossed it — could accelerate the growth of larger women-owned businesses.”
