This week’s book review is The Entrepreneurs Guide to Business Law by Constance E. Bagley and Craig E. Dauchy.
This is a reference book rather than a traditional business book. You don’t need to read this cover to cover rather, you only reference the section that applies to the business and legal need at hand. It is a great reference manual that every entrepreneur and business leader should have on their shelf. The guide covers topics from incorporation to building a contract and from intellectual property to IPOs.
My takeaway from this book is that every business leader needs to have a basic understanding of the laws that govern their business. They need to understand when they can handle a situation and when they need to retain a lawyer specialized in that field. This guide also gives some great tips on selecting an attorney when the need arises!
