“Freelancing and the Law with Eric Davis, Esq.”
You’re up and running. Projects are coming in and clients are spreading the word about your good work. There’s not much time for sorting through legal mumbo-jumbo.

Does it matter anyway?

Yes. Pittsburgh attorney Eric Davis has worked with start-ups, entrepreneurs, creatives and social businesses for much of his career. He’s seen it all. Let Eric answer your legal questions, including those you didn’t know to ask. Incorporation, contracts and the ins and outs of small-claims court will be demystified in a relaxed setting surrounded by your peers.

Elliott & Davis, PC is delighted to take part in cityLab’s “Lessons from the 6% Place” series. This series of workshops aims to make running your creative business more manageable. Eric Davis is the first in a long line of subject experts from the greater Pittsburgh area that will speak at this monthly series. This is a great learning and networking opportunity for Pittsburgh’s creative community.

We hope to see you there!
