Risks and Rewards for Your Consulting
Practice: Legal and Financial Decisions You Must Control

An Evening With Don Lord and
Daniel Krakower



Operating a small, professional-services firm is fraught with risk and opportunity.  Choices you make now can have major downstream effects that leave you either very glad or very sad about your decisions.

The form of business organization you choose, your retirement strategies, your relationships with clients, employees, partners and teams, all can increase or diminish your competitive strength, capability and opportunities. These decisions involve complex legal issues and financial concerns not always immediately obvious. Taking fully informed, careful action is especially important to your kind of business and the only winning strategy.

IMC/NCR presents an interactive panel discussion with two subject matter experts you’ll appreciate: a business attorney with special expertise to help you avoid, solve and manage legal issues especially relevant to small professional service firms, and a fee-only financial advisor whose firm brings small firms and their owners the quality of financial analysis and guidance traditionally available only to large companies and the super-wealthy.  

Topics for discussion will be drawn in part from ideas you raised at our October Buzz Session, plus questions you raise at the meeting, like:  
  • How best to protect your most valuable assets, and manage your most critical risks;
  • *Essential, and often overlooked, elements of contracts and agreements with clients, subcontractors and teaming partners
  • Considerations in attracting, taking on, and managing financial partners and investors;
  • Growth, exit and retirement planning – the long term, strategic view.   
Join us November 10 and together we'll get smarter!

The Moderator for our panel is Eric Thomas, CMC, PMP. Eric is a proven leader, excellent communicator, and fact-based problem solver, with strong business development and client relationship management skills. He also serves as Certification Chair and Treasurer for our chapter
