We are pleased to announce that our series of legal podcasts is now available free of charge for download and subscription at the iTunes Store. Just search “ctflegal” at the iTunes Store, and you can download particular podcasts or subscribe to future podcasts. The podcasts are also available on the firm’s website, www.ctflegal.com, or at www.ctflegal.blip.tv.
The firm began recording and distributing podcasts earlier this year addressing various legal topics of interest to business. The podcasts provide general information and hopefully allow our clients and friends to identify and understand legal issues that may affect their businesses. The podcasts are not intended, of course, to constitute legal advice and are no substitute for legal advice from a qualified lawyer addressing the particular circumstances a particular business may face.
Currently available podcasts include a three-part series on trade secrets and non-disclosure agreements (“NDAs”), and a three-part series on mediation. Our most popular podcast to date is entitled “Common Legal Mistakes Businesses Make and How to Avoid Them,” based upon a presentation I gave earlier this year to the Chamblee Business Association. This podcast addresses a number of mistakes we have observed businesses (particularly small and medium-sized businesses) make repeatedly.
We are currently working on completing a series of podcasts on common legal mistakes international companies make in doing business in the U.S. The first two parts are available, and we expect to release further podcasts in this series shortly. Future podcasts will address insurance issues and other topics.
