The all-day workshop sponsored by Pavese Law Firm, Relevanza, Wells Fargo, Markham Norton Moesteller Wright & Company, and Great Florida Insurance is geared toward small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to get their small business legal questions answered by professionals in the field of law.

The day kicks off with a continental breakfast sponsored by Costco at 8:30 a.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from tracks of 50 minutes each on subjects that are informative and need-to-know such as legal contracts conducted by Carmen Dellutri, The Dellutri Law Firm; everything legal: stump the attorney conducted by Donna Flammang, Brennan, Manna & Diamond; distressed property options and foreclosures, presented by Mary Sanders, Sanders Law Firm.

The afternoon will continue with a dynamic panel discussion on the effects of small business bankruptcy from a legal, tax, finance, and insurance perspective.

"We are pleased to continue to provide this annual educational workshop and reach out to small business owners throughout Southwest Florida who may have questions or concerns about their business," said Suzanne Specht, assistant director of the SBDC and program coordinator for Entrepreneurís Law School.
