Entrepreneur's­­ & Contractor's Guide to Corporations & Contracts + Potluck

  • Oct 24, 2016 · 6:00 PM
  • One Day Labs

Entrepreneurs and independent contractors may not be aware of the legal aspects and pitfalls of the work they are doing. Come to our presentation to get a lawyer's perspective on what you need to know about serving clients as a small business or working as a freelancer. He is excited to have the opportunity to talk to you about:


- The difference between being an employee and being an entrepreneur or an independent contractor;

- The basics of legal contracts;

- What you need to know about intellectual property such as patents, trademarks and copyrights; and

- What the benefits are of forming a corporation or a limited liability company ("LLC")


Daniel Raff is a business and real estate attorney in Petaluma. As part of his practice, he represents independent contractors, small business owners, construction contractors, and a variety of real estate clients. A former prosecutor, he started his practice when he moved to Petaluma after his girlfriend was hired as a veterinarian at a local clinic. He loves Sonoma County (especially the wine) and is looking forward to starting a family here.

    Sorry to bow out at the last moment, I really hoped to make it, but threw my back out yesterday and though improved, I need to go home and rest. Hoping there's a video!
