The core of this Iowa business and corporate law blog consists of six main categories found on the right hand side margin including incorporation and LLC formation, starting a business, franchise law, employment law, business litigation and buying and selling a business. I attempt to cover many of the basics in each category and also follow a variety of new developments including the recent Iowa consumer class action against Microsoft which is one of the largest cases in Iowa history.
In a recent interview with the Des Moines Register I was asked why I started this blog. Initially I sought to differentiate myself from other Iowa business lawyers in order to more effectively market my services. While blogging has worked to accomplish my initial goal, I quickly developed a much higher sense of purpose with this blog. I want to do my part to improve the public image of lawyers. My strong sense of purpose is to educate and provide information to business people in a way that helps them identify legal issues and make more informed choices about what legal services they need. The collaborative process of a law blog (or any blog) can allow this to happen.
