While this may sound like the opening line of a funny joke, it is no joke at all! On Monday, October 21st at 6:30 PM at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), we’re having an All Star Attorney Panel Discussion with four prominent local real estate attorneys… Fred Kross, Craig Halperin, John Maurer and Jon David Huffman.
BIG meets at the Hudson Grill located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA. This is a special BIG Meeting you don’t want to miss since it is a rare opportunity for you to discuss your real estate investing business with not one, but four real estate attorneys!
With all the attorney jokes aside, as investors, having good attorneys on our team is very important to our business. They assist us with legal entity setup; reviewing contracts; closing our real estate deals; dealing with liens; assisting our sellers with bankruptcy; short sales and foreclosures; representing us in lawsuits and so much more. This month at BIG, you are going to meet four local real estate attorneys who are all Atlanta REIA Members and who specialize in serving the needs of new and seasoned investors. They will be joining us to share their thoughts with you and answer all your burning legal questions. Join us at BIG and you will learn…
- When and why you need a good attorney on your side
- What advice our attorneys would give to beginning investors
- How to avoid many of the common mistakes investors make
- What type of legal entities and asset protection you should use
- How to work with sellers in bankruptcy or foreclosure
- How to avoid frivolous lawsuits
- What to expect at closing
- And answers to all your burning questions and much more!
After the Panel Discussion, attendees can stick around and participate in our new creative deal structuring exercises. This is an opportunity to practice on how to structure deals. Bring some of the deals you are working on, or use some of our scenarios.
Atlanta REIA members can attend the Beginning Investors Group for FREE. Non Members can RSVP Online for $15.00 or pay $20 at the door. If you join Atlanta REIA before the meeting, you can attend at no charge and get BIG Discounts on Atlanta REIA Training Workshops.
