News from the Desk: May 2018

By May 8, 2018 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

Welcome May! Spring has definitely sprung, and we’re so happy to see the sun. We hope you’re having a productive and positive spring!

On April 19th, Sherry participated as part of a panel of attorneys who presented at the King County Bar Association Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar Personal Estate Planning for the 99%. This continuing legal education program focused on estate planning for clients whose asset levels fall below the Washington and federal estate tax filing thresholds. Sherry served as a group leader for the drafting element of the program, assisting attorneys in developing their skills.

On May 18th, I’m excited to present a program as part of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) four-day JumpStart Workshops. I’ll be speaking on service contracts. I plan to focus on the three requirements of a contract (offer, acceptance and consideration), key contract terms, tips for working effectively with business counsel and tips for handling contract disagreements. SBA programs generally draw an enthusiastic group of engaged and inquisitive entrepreneurs. These are my people, and I look forward to being a part of JumpStart!
