44th Annual IBE Summer Celebration, Top Legal Trends for Business Owners Recap

From July 10-20, 2014, several Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP attorneys participated in the Indiana Black Expo, Inc.’s 44th Summer Celebration, the IBE’s annual signature event showcasing African American culture through festivals, exhibits, workshops and concerts.

As a bronze sponsor of the event, Bingham Greenebaum Doll enjoyed its own table at the Mayor’s Breakfast on July 14, featuring keynote speaker Mayor Ballard. His speech discussed business development opportunities, diversity highlights, award recognition and networking.

About The Presentation
Immediately following the Mayor’s Breakfast, several of the firm’s attorneys conducted a workshop at the Key Bank IBE Business Conference. Roderick Morgan, Tamara McMillian, Rafael Sanchez, Attorney and Daniel L. Boots held a 90-minute workshop entitled “Business Law 101: Top Legal Trends for Business Owners.” The workshop provided emerging business owners with a firmer understanding of what to consider when establishing and developing a business.

  • Presentation topics included:
    • Information on intellectual property issues;
    • Business organization;
    • MBE/WBE certification;
    • Contracts and subcontracting;
    • Labor and employment; and
    • Litigation.

If you missed the presentation, live tweets sharing tips and insight from the presentation are available on the firm’s Twitter timeline.

About the Corporate Luncheon
Later in the week-long celebration, the firm was also afforded the opportunity to attend the Pacers Sports & Entertainment Corporate Luncheon, which was well-attended by community leaders as well as the firm’s attorneys and guests. The event featured awardee speeches from celebrities Louis Gossett Jr. (Lifetime Achievement Award), Diahann Carroll (Living Legend Award), Tracey Edmonds (Woman of Vision Award) and CVS Caremark (Rev. Charles R. Williams Excellence Award).

Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is committed to the communities it serves and is always proud to sponsor and participate in this dynamic event. The business conference provides an annual opportunity for Hoosier business leaders to gather and receive tools and resources available to them in the competitive marketplace. This year, our firm continued its tradition of bringing educational resources directly to attendees through the business conference, and we are excited to continue this tradition in years to come.

Thank you to all who joined us at this year’s events. We look forward to seeing you again at the 45th Summer Celebration in July 2015.
