News from the Desk: July 2016

By July 26, 2016 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

Happy Seattle summer! This time of year always brings out the best of the Northwest. We hope you are able to take some time to enjoy the season!

I recently updated an article I have had in the Seattle U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Resource Guide for many years, entitled Selecting the Right Legal Structure for Your Company. The SBA Resource Guide provides a wonderful resource for new entrepreneurs, and my article is designed to provide useful information to new business owners. I have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with the SBA for many years, and truly believe that their classes and resources significantly benefit entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Meanwhile, Sherry recently spent time editing a chapter of the forthcoming Estate Planning, Probate, and Trust/Administration in Washington Deskbook published by the Washington State Bar Association. The Deskbooks are a series of reference books for legal practitioners in Washington. Sherry edited a chapter on “Types of Administration”, which provides an overview of types of estate administration in Washington. She is honored to have been invited to contribute to this volume as an editor, and looks forward to the publication to the final product!

As always, I would love to hear your questions and comments. If you have any questions about our law firm and the work we do, please contact me or visit our website.
