Chair's Letter from Michael S. Khoury
The Michigan Business Law Institute is coming soon! The 20th Annual Michigan Business Law Institute will be held at the Dearborn Inn in Dearborn on June 13-14. In addition to the opportunity to network and meet your colleagues, the Institute will offer sessions on cutting edge issues:

  • Get everything you need to address Michigan's new business tax
  • Deal with potential conflicts of interest with confidence
  • Draft business agreements that stand up in litigation
  • Learn what new legislation and the latest case law means for your business clients
  • Discover the dos and don'ts of fundraising and venture capital
  • Get an inside look at what Michigan's Economic Development Corporation has in store
  • Make the right business entity choices

Register soon! We hope to see you there.

Business Boot Camp is Returning
The popular Business Boot Camp I is returning in September. Business Boot Camp I offers nine sessions, two hours each, taught by outstanding experts, every one a leader in the field. The Directors of Training are all former chairs of the Section, Jeffrey Ammon, Timothy Damschroder, and Daniel Minkus, who have put together another outstanding faculty. The presenters handle the matters they'll be talking about day in and day out. Get to know them. Learn from them. Build your practice to become one of them! They will share the secrets of their success with you! Business Boot Camp I means minimal time out of the office. Attend once a month for nine months early in the morning reducing your non-billable time. It's exciting. It's innovative. It's practical. And, it's affordable.
