Learn from speaker, Stephen Kane, Small Business and Startup Attorney and Bixel Exchange's newest advisor.
Stephen Kane is a Los Angeles based business attorney providing California small businesses and startups with quality legal services at reasonable rates. He can assist you across a broad spectrum of business related legal matters: drafting and reviewing contracts, i.e. employment agreements, business agreements, founder agreements, labor & employment advice and disputes, i.e. employee handbooks, labor commission proceedings, and litigation matters including breach of contract disputes, and advice on incorporating or forming an LLC.
You have a lot of options when hiring a new attorney and attorneys are pretty good at telling you why they're the best person for the job. So what sets him apart? His business experience and approach. He's one of very few practicing attorneys who's also been an entrepreneur and business owner. This gives him the insight he needs to provide you with practical advice rooted in both legal doctrine and real world experience. A great number of business decisions boil down to risk-reward, especially when the law's involved - so rather than tell you what to do he aims to properly equip you with the information you need to make your own business decision.
