I WROTE THE BOOK ON BUYING AND SELLING A SMALL BUSINESS. In my book, I teach you about the process of buying a small business, the legal issues you might encounter, and how you might resolve those issues. Learn what happens before, during, and after the closing of the deal. Learn what typical purchase agreement provisions mean. Educating yourself about the process, what to expect, and how to resolve common issues can help reduce stress, save time, and save on legal fees.


The University of Illinois Gies College of Business uses my book as a text for its Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition class.

I  WROTE THE BOOK ON STARTING A GIG ECONOMY BUSINESS. Starting and running a gig economy business (e.g., consultant, independent contractor, or freelancer) triggers a lot of legal issues. This book helps you identify and take them on. It explains and sets expectations for starting and running your gig economy business, including choosing and setting up a legal entity, creating a template client contract, handling intellectual property matters, resolving client disputes, and getting legal help. It contains checklists to help you organize your startup. While it's not a substitute for legal advice, it will help you prepare for and work more efficiently with a lawyer to reduce your legal risks.
