“A Roadmap to Starting Your Own Firm”

May 28, 2015

Michael C. Lasky, Davis & Gilbert Public Relations Law Chair and Litigation Practice Group Co-Chair will present a webinar titled “A Roadmap to Starting Your Own Firm.”

Session Overview
For many PR pros, the ultimate job is being the boss. For an experienced PR pro, it could very well be a logical next step where you can take all the knowledge and experience you’ve acquired during your career and apply it to an organization all your own. However, this opportunity is not solely the domain of those who have been in the industry for years. More and more, younger PR pros are emboldened to work for themselves. Armed with digital savvy, courage, and confidence, they feel the best time to take the entrepreneurial plunge is at the early stages of their careers. This webinar will discuss:

  • Recognizing when the time and circumstances are optimal for you to seriously consider launching your own shop
  • How to ensure an amicable split from previously employer
  • The best legal structure to form your new firm
  • Choosing and protecting the name and trademark of your new firm
  • Assembling an "agency tool kit": hiring your first employee and bringing on your first clients
