So You Want To Run An Architectural Firm?

Thursday, February 13, 2014

All are welcome, light reception provided so please RSVP to events@aiaeb.org

1.5 CES LUs

On February 13, 2014 David E. Barker, Esq. and Liam Knepprath-Malone, Esq. will present a Seminar entitled “So You Want To Run An Architectural Firm?”.  This seminar will go over a number of business issues that architects face on a regular basis.  More than the contracts, indemnity, and standard of care seminars that we frequently see, this seminar touch on aspects such as CAB requirements for your license; business structures, what is allowed and not allowed and how they work; insurance considerations; intellectual property; contracts; and employment issues.

As a brief overview on each of these subjects, this will be an interactive seminar encouraging questions and addressing some of the business elements that all architects face in their practice.  This seminar will help not only the firm owners, but also employees of firms to understand the various requirements on their firms and how all of these pieces work together.

About the presenters: David E. Barker, Esq.  Mr. Barker is a partner with the law firm of Collins Collins Muir + Stewart, LLP.  While experienced in representing architects in a variety of legal settings including trials, arbitrations, and administrative actions, Mr. Barker also heads the transactional practice for his firm.

Liam Knepprath-Malone, Esq. is also an attorney at Collins Collins Muir + Stewart.  From the Oakland office, Mr. Knepprath-Malone focuses his practice on the representation of design professionals of all disciplines in litigation matters.
