Enterprise Toronto is hosting a seminar to provide free legal advice for businesses on May 12 in Toronto.

All new businesses have legal implications. However, understandably, small business owners are often so focused on building their business and establishing a customer base, that many do not consider their legal issues until it is too late. Even for those who may be somewhat aware of the legal implications and requirements of operating a business, legal compliance can be overly complicated and prohibitively expensive.

Volunteer corporate lawyers from Pro Bono Ontario will be available to provide small business owners with free information and support on corporate, tax, employment, contract, real estate, licensing and other business, commercial and other regulatory matters. Early level support, can make all the difference and help guide small business owners transition from concept to reality.

Understanding the law and planning accordingly can save a lot of time, money and effort as you grow your business. The law can be a tool to help business owners create an organized and orderly system in which expectations of participants are anticipated and planned for. It is important to be aware of potentially complex legal issues that can slow the growth of your business and take advantage of solutions and protections offered by the legal system.

The seminar will be held from 9 to 12 EDT at the North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge St. in North York, Ont. Tickets are available here.
