Here’s what our clients who are marketing professionals are saying:
“I have been singing Laurie Lee’s praises ever since she handled my new Membership Interest Purchase Agreement. I couldn’t be happier with the process.”
“They always take the time to understand the reasons why I feel like I need changes to our legal documents instead of diving straight into the changes.”
“Laurie and team have been a great and trusted resource for our company. They offer ideal services and rates for small businesses and really care about their clients.”
For marketing services, the three areas of most concern are highlighted below:
The type, organization, structure, and governance of your business is the most basic aspect of your foundation.
Many service professionals are governed by specialized rules and regulations in addition to general regulations.
Having direct, honest relationships with your clients is the key to repeat business, referrals, and long-term success.
When you’re the client, understanding the agreement and how the relationship should work is critical.
Relationships with an employee or independent contractor need to be defined to protect your business and clients.
Without structure or guidelines to establish expectations and accountability, business partners can pose a high risk.
An important part of protecting your brand is making sure you trademark rights are in place.
Copyrights capture a broad range of things you create for your business or for your clients.
