As a business law attorney, I’ve worked with all kinds of businesses. I’ve worked with startups and companies that have been around for decades. I’ve worked with sole proprietors and companies with dozens of employees. Consequently, I’ve learned a lot about when people work well together and when they don’t.

And people usually come see me when they don’t.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. By taking the time to vet and understand prospective collaborators and project partners that you want to work with, you can avoid the pitfalls, challenges, and litigation that so many other people face.

The Class Project:

For the class project, you’ll conduct an assessment of your current and future goals, values, etc. so that you will be able to compare them to the information that you obtain when you assess the partner questionnaire. By having both questionnaires available for review, you will be in a better position to determine whether a prospective partner or collaborator is a good fit.

By the end of this course, you will have learned how to vet a potential business partner.
