Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the May 11th premiere of a new webinar “Roadmap to Buying a (Competing) Business,” designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to considerations to be made before a purchase. Moderator Michael Schwarzmann of Crowe Horwath joins panelists from Lotzer Law Group, Avalon Net Worth and Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer to discuss the steps needed for successful evaluation of a potential purchase opportunity.

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 04, 2016

Great companies fail for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with the product or service they are selling. Turning an idea into a business is hard, often because the creative entrepreneur with the great idea does not have the same level of skill, training, experience, and passion in the other critical areas required to make a product into a successful company.

These areas include knowing how to attract and retain people, understanding accounting and finance, and being able to negotiate various contracts - including potentially a contract to buy a competitor or, ultimately, to even sell the business.

This Financial Poise™ Webinar series covers some of these topics, as always, in plain English. As with all Financial Poise™ Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.
