All About Arts Business Entities
What is best for you and your arts business? What are the differences between a sole proprietorship, partnership, joint venture, corporation and LLC? Learn about the legal and operative differences between these business entities and why people choose one over the other, or why they convert their businesses from one to another.
This workshop is led by M.J. Bogatin (“Bo”), a founding member of the San Francisco law firm Bogatin, Corman & Gold. To his shock and amazement, Bo is fast approaching forty years of Arts and Entertainment law practice including literary, performing, visual and multimedia transactions. He regularly handles large-scale public art commissions as well as artist moral rights claims. He has training and experience as a mediator; has served on the boards of directors of several Bay Area non-profit arts organizations and is an officer and long-time co-president of California Lawyers for the Arts. He speaks often at legal workshops on copyright, trademark, and contract issues for artists.
