In this Lunch and Launch, John Carter will provide entrepreneurs an overview of the issues and necessary techniques to establish and maintain longer term "win-win" relationships with customers, strategic suppliers and independent contractors. This program is perfect for all existing businesses that are embarking on new business relationships or that have current relationships that need fine tuning or improvement.

More specifically, this program looks at the various types of contractual relationships available to Michigan businesses and the key legal considerations required to maintain these relationships. The focus is on how to prevent and resolve potential conflict, minimize potential liability, share risk and expenses while meeting customer demands and responding to changes in local market conditions. The program format will include actual case studies and examples of successful joint ventures and other relationships from local technology and manufacturing businesses.

John Carter is a principal member at Witzke Berry Carter & Wander, PLLC and leads the "Business Law and Commercial Transactions" group. He has been practicing business and commercial law for 18 years and focuses on assisting Michigan entrepreneurs with business formation, commercial transactions, licensing and franchises and business succession planning.

Carter is an active member of the Business Law and Unincorporated Enterprises section of the Michigan Bar, and serves as a mentor and teacher with various Michigan entrepreneurial and small business organizations. He received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and his law degree from the University of Miami, Fl.

Please bring your lunch, though beverages and dessert will be provided.
