The law can seem daunting when you’re just starting a business. Whether you have concerns about entity formation, raising capital, or contract language, following legal best practices can set you up to avoid barriers you might never anticipate.

Join attorneys Ryan Steele and Kirsten Fraser of the Columbus office of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP office as they discuss strategies for your business to achieve its goals while limiting exposure to liability. Participants in this TIGER Talk will learn the actions to take to protect business interests, meet business goals, and serve clients while protecting a business from legal risk.

Ryan Steele is a Senior Associate who helps early stage entrepreneurs choose optimal business structures and complete the documentation needed to establish their business foundation, grow and expand, and ultimately exit on their own favorable terms.

Ryan efficiently executes complex business contracts so that rapidly growing companies, business owners and early stage entrepreneurs can cost-effectively achieve their growth goals.

Ryan also brings great business savvy to his client relationships. Having managed an office of over 100 people, Ryan can apply his first-hand knowledge of everyday business functions including project management, employee management, and independent contracting, providing practical counsel to fast-growing entities so they can overcome challenges and achieve their business goals.
