Lavelle Law Plans Two Events in May for Small Businesses

Updated 4/14/2021 8:33 AM

Schaumburg-based Lavelle Law is planning two events in May for local small businesses and entrepreneurs. The first is part of their quarterly Breakfast Briefs series and the second is an event with the Schaumburg Business Association.

The free Breakfast Briefs event, "Cybersecurity & Safeguards for Small Businesses," will take place on Wednesday, May 5 from 8 to 9 a.m. The event will be held at 1933 N. Meacham Road, Suite 127 in Schaumburg, but a Zoom link will be provided for those not comfortable attending in person and for overflow registrants.


During the event, Lavelle Law attorneys Ted McGinn, Lance Ziebell and Steve Migala will provide businesses with guidance on how to safeguard against cybercrime and offer strategies for minimizing the liabilities that could result from a cyberattack.

Registration and face masks are required, and the in-person event will be limited to 25 people in order to adhere to CDC and Illinois COVID-19 Safety Guidelines.

McGinn, Samantha Bonamassa and Migala will also give a virtual presentation entitled, "Toolkit to Elevate Your Business" as part of the Schaumburg Business Association's Good Morning Schaumburg. The event will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, May 11 from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

During this presentation, the Lavelle Law business attorneys will discuss how to choose the correct entity for your new business, as well as how to structure the relationships among the entity and its owners through the use of shareholder and operating agreements. New and emerging businesses will learn how to raise capital through private placements of their securities without the need to incur the time and expense of registering them with the SEC and the Illinois Securities Department.
