Business Law for Paralegals

Gain an understanding of the business compliance requirements that are needed for the proper business entity for your clients and business.

One of the crucial decisions business clients make is choosing the type of business entity for their new business. There are many advantages and disadvantages to consider and the entity type choice will have significant impacts on the organization, governance, and compliance necessary for the business. Once the company has been formed, there are further important issues businesses will face. This topic will help identify and differentiate the various types of business entities and will also help you identify the process and important factors involved so you and your attorney will be able to select the proper form of business entity for your business client to succeed and thrive. The material also explains the various areas of compliance businesses face. This topic will also provide information regarding navigating ethical landmines that might arise in advising businesses. Methods required for analyzing the race and gender of applications received and how this relates to the hiring process will be discussed. This information is critical to ensure understanding of some of the important issues faced with business clients.
