Social Media and the Law

What business owners need to know

A social media presence is not really a “nice to have” for most businesses these days, but an important aspect of your marketing strategy. But social media can create a host of legal problems for businesses – from hiring to advertising, customer reviews to employees posting, we’ve got podcast episodes and videos to help you with the ins and outs of social media engagement for your business. 

Social media can be a powerful tool for your business’s growth and success when leveraged strategically and responsibly. By developing a well-thought-out social media strategy, adhering to legal and regulatory requirements, and protecting your brand’s intellectual property, you can maximize opportunities and mitigate potential risks.
