Risk Management for Small Business

All organizations, even those with sophisticated compliance management systems, are vulnerable to the risk of exposure to noncompliance, especially in an era of heightened uncertainty and change. By examining risk and compliance as key strategic responsibilities of organization stakeholders, you will learn to effectively safeguard your organization’s assets and brand reputation, while exploiting competitive advantage. The workshops will provide attendees critical information on what startups and small businesses need to know, including: negotiation and contract risk management for both commercial and government contracts; corporate form; protection of assets, including intellectual property; minimizing exposure to disputes and litigation; government inspections and investigations; as well as how to keep up to date with changing laws and regulations and advocate on your behalf.

Virginia A. Suveiu, Esq., presents this workshop.
