On this episode, Liz and I revisit the concept of trademarks and how important it is that you consider trademarking your business name to avoid a "cease and desist" letter that could cost thousands of dollars down the road.

We also talked about her new website where you can get a starter set of legal documents, like an MSA, for a fraction of the cost. 

What's included? 

  • Master Service Agreement (MSA) Template
  • Service + Pricing Schedules
  • SOW Template
  • Liability Waiver
  • Client Handbook Template
  • IT Policy Manual Template
  • Service Election and Risk Acceptance Letter
  • MSA + Client Handbook Template Customization Training
  • Monthly MSA Focused Q&A

*NOTE: Buying the templates does not make Corvinus Law your attorney of record!

Liz is the Managing Attorney at Corvinus Law: https://corvinuslaw.com/

Business & IP Attorney

Liz is a multi-award-winning business and IP attorney and the owner of Corvinus Law, a boutique virtual law firm focused on helping small businesses in the areas of intellectual property (trademarks and copyright) and a wide range of corporate matters (contract drafting and negotiation, business formation, advertising and Internet law).

With well over a decade of experience, she is a frequent speaker at summits, conferences, podcasts and private corporate events on the topics of risk management, MSAs, and best practices for MSPs to manage client expectations, control scope, get paid, and limit legal liability in today’s often unpredictable and increasingly hostile cybersecurity landscape.
