This workshop with Opticliff Law, LLC will address common questions that business owners have about two issues that affect companies of all sizes, in all industries: contracts and intellectual property. In an interactive presentation format, we’ll answer questions like those below. You’ll walk away with useful legal checklists to consult in the future.


  • When do I need to use a written contract, versus trusting a handshake deal?
  • What ten provisions should I insist on including in every contract I sign?
  • How can a company with a small legal budget prepare contracts in a cost-effective way?
  • What are the rules about selling products to minors?
  • What should I know about website Terms of Use?
  • What do I need to know about hiring independent contractors?

Intellectual property

  • What is the difference between a patent, copyright and trademark?
  • Naming your company & trademark basics: When and how should I think about ensuring there aren’t other companies already using the name I picked for my business, and how can I “claim” that name so others can’t use it?
  • How do I do a trademark name search?

This workshop and Q & A session will be presented by Opticliff Law’s Andrew Kraus, Esq. and Adam Nyhan, Esq.
