The Kootenay-Boundary region is a hotbed of entrepreneurial spirit, talent and creativity that continues to hatch innovative small businesses.
While great ideas and enterprise are here in abundance, the legal steps required to translate ideas into a fully operational and functional businesses can be a major hurdle.
Ask An Expert: LEGAL is designed to provide a helping hand for small businesses, companies and start-ups that traditionally may not see their issues as being substantial enough to motivate them to pay a lawyer but are critical to their venture.
“I was motivated to start offering the Business Law Clinics because my experience in my practice is that many start-up and small business owners leave getting legal advice too late in the process,” said Leon Pigott of Pigott & Co.
“Often, some early advice from a lawyer would help to build a strong foundation for growth. I hope that offering a free clinic on business law issues will encourage business owners or anyone with an idea for a business to get some early input on any prospective legal issues and help to demystify the legal process.“
Ask An Expert: LEGAL is a partnership project between the Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST), Community Futures of Greater Trail, Community Futures Central Kootenay and Leon Pigott of Pigott & Co, designed to ease legal barriers for entrepreneurs and young companies by providing free access to expert advice.
