Experienced Corporate Attorney Offers 7-Week Teleseminar on "Legal Basics for Business" Beginning April 30

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2009) - After hearing the same legal questions from start-up business owners over and over, experienced lawyer and entrepreneur Dava Casoni has developed "Legal Basics for Business" (www.legalbasicsforbusiness.com), a seven-week teleseminar that covers everything from legally creating a business entity to understanding contract language and protecting your brand with trademarks and copyrights. Casoni will also discuss what to do if you are ever sued or feel you need to initiate a law suit, licensing, sales tax, and keeping legal costs to a minimum. Course participants will also receive several actual contract templates and two hours of private legal consultation with Casoni.

"When I started my own business, my partner was grateful that I was a business lawyer because of all the forms we had to file, contracts we had to sign, permits we had to obtain, etc.," says Dava Casoni, Esq., owner of Casoni Law Group (www.casonilaw.com), creator of "Legal Basics for Business" and co-owner of PowerDreams LLC. "I created this course to help other entrepreneurs navigate the legal process and help them save time and money. I liken it to preparing yourself to bring your car to the mechanic. You may not want to know how to repair the engine yourself, but most people feel better if they understand the repairs the mechanic recommends and can decide which repairs are actually necessary."

A graduate of Cornell Law School, Casoni served as a federal law clerk and has twelve years of experience practicing corporate law at some of the nation's most prestigious law firms, including Bingham McCutchen, Pillsbury Law and Milbank Tweed. She is admitted to practice law in California, New York, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.

The seminar runs for seven consecutive Thursdays, beginning Thursday, April 30, from 8-9 pm Eastern/5-6 pm Pacific. The teleseminar price of $2,997 includes the seven-week course, a private consultation, entity documents ready to file, several important customized contracts, and a trademark application for one logo, ready to file. The course provides 12 hours of legal time and finished documents; even for simple entities, this work could run upwards of $5000 at well known law firms.

The schedule for "Legal Basics for Business" is as follows:

Week 1:  Introduction and Entity Information (LLC, corporation or sole
         proprietorship).
Week 2:  Formation and Ongoing Documents and Working with Business
         Partners.
