Lathrop & Gage Consults bizperc Entrepreneurs May 22

The benefits of joining the bizperc coworking space seem endless—Roasterie coffee, inspirational views of downtown Kansas City and collaboration with like-minded entrepreneurs daily.  But now, bizperc is bringing an even bigger benefit to the coworking community: legal consulting hours from Lathrop & Gage.

On Tuesday, May 22 from 3:00-5:00PM, Colleen Graham and Travis McCallon of Lathrop & Gage meet one-on-one with bizperc members to help answer those percolating startup legal questions. 

Next week, Graham and McCallon will sit down with bizperc members to discuss different legal matters for startup businesses.  Graham, an expert in the corporate space, will guide entrepreneurs through business lifecycles (from formation documents to hiring employees to selling the company).  McCallon, on the other hand, will assist entrepreneurs with intellectual property questions such as copyright, trademarks, licensing and agreements.

According to Graham, associate at Lathrop & Gage, many entrepreneurs confront the law firm after a mistake has already been made.  bizperc’s consulting hours can help entrepreneurs prevent anything detrimental from happening in the first place.

“We see a lot of entrepreneurs when something goes wrong,” says Graham.  “These hours will help entrepreneurs avoid mistakes before they happen.  Entrepreneurs often need that extra knowledge and time.  It’s all about foresight.”

Graham notes that Kansas City has a large entrepreneurial market that has yet to be tapped.  The goal of both Graham and McCallon is to build positive relationships with some of these KC entrepreneurs and to help them succeed from start to finish.

To sign up for the bizperc hours with Lathrop & Gage, you must be a bizperc member.  Email Sarah at to register.
