Our firm enjoys spending time with business people, community leaders, budding entrepreneurs, local artists, and other community members. Whether we are hanging out with folks at the Salem Red Sox ballpark, attending chamber of commerce and Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council functions, or interacting with local artists in association with The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. (our downstairs art gallery), we pride ourselves in engaging with the community. Our team also enjoys speaking on a myriad of topics that will help you grow your business both personally and professionally. We host Shark Bites monthly in our Blacksburg office and at the Grandin CoLab in Roanoke. Please see our calendar below for full registration information for this month’s Shark Bite. We are happy to speak to your group on intellectual property protection (copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets), business formation, contract drafting, social media usage, internet/technology law, and more.
The craft beer movement has grown steadily in Virginia, with the Roanoke Valley leading the charge lately. Operating and marketing a brewery business is no simple undertaking, though. The need to be creative, unique and catchy in advertising and labeling has to be balanced against some overly restrictive, and not necessarily readily known, laws and regulations concerning both. Join us this month for a fun and engaging look at brewery marketing, labeling and advertising and coverage of some specific laws and regulations brewery owners and marketers need to know to keep the taps open and brews pouring smoothly.
