We created this InfoSheet to help you better understand how we can assist with your particular profession’s legal needs.

For online education services, the three areas of most concern are highlighted below:

Entity Structure

The type, organization, structure, and governance of your business is the most basic aspect of your foundation.

Regulatory Compliance

Many service professionals are governed by specialized rules and regulations in addition to general regulations.

Client Relationships

Having direct, honest relationships with your clients is the key to repeat business, referrals, and long-term success.

Vendor Relationships

When you’re the client, understanding the agreement and how the relationship should work is critical.

Worker Relationships

Relationships with an employee or independent contractor need to be defined to protect your business and clients.

Owner Relationships

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.
