Philadelphia LawWorks, a project of Philadelphia VIP, is please to announce its next small business legal clinic, which matches volunteer lawyers with micro-entrepreneurs who would otherwise have to use their limited resources for counsel – or navigate the legal system on their own without the benefit of professional advice.
Attorneys will meet one-on-one with micro-entrepreneurs to discuss immediate and ongoing legal matters. LawWorks will match volunteer attorneys’ practice expertise with clients’ specific legal needs, but they request a minimum of three years’ experience for this event. Usually, micro-entrepreneurs have questions regarding business structure, contracts, tax, intellectual property, real estate, employment and risk management. McCarter & English, LLP will provide attorneys with significant experience in these practice areas should a consult be needed by a volunteer unfamiliar with an issue.
There will be an opportunity for private and corporate counsel to network at this event at a brief reception.
