Extraordinary Exceptionalism

Broads CircleHave you ever been to a Broads Circle event?  If not, what’s holding you back?  Please take a few moments to answer 3 quick questions and give us your feedback.  Click here to take the survey  

At Broads Circle what we care about is Helping Women Make Money!!!  In an era of financial crises, it has not been easy even for the ‘best of the best’ to grow capital and drive revenue.  But we feel a change in play for women who have the motivation and ambition to drive revenue and grow capital, a time that offers extraordinary opportunity to achieve exceptional results in all metrics for women:

  • Revenue: bottom line money, money in the pocket
  • Capital Transactions: women enjoying liquidity events
  • Power Women Capitalists: women sitting in power seats in the C-Suite and in the corporate Boardroom

The Broads on Boards 2042 Manifesto:  Calling all women captains of industry and other brilliant women!  Let’s take on the challenge that we will work our way into those corporate board seats, until we get to parity by 2042!  No excuses!

March 20:  3rd Annual Women on Corporate Boards
Sponsored by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners
Broads on Boards is hosting this event downtown LA.  If you want to power network with the women who sit at the table in corporate boardrooms, come to this event at the Omni Hotel and learn from corporate Board Directors of Lazy Boy, Jack in the Box, Conway and Whole Foods.  Ask them if they think that women can conquer 50% of all American corporate board seats by 2042.  Register by March 18 to avoid late registration fee!

June 5:  Driving Revenue at the Legal Speed Limit! – Sponsored by Latham & Watkins

Women General Counsels discuss sitting in the C-Suite and how to make sure you are driving revenue and growing capital within the law.  Our panel will discuss how to push the pedal to the metal on revenue and capital growth and still play fully within the law, in an increasingly regulated and legally complex global business environment.  We are currently working on putting this panel together–stay tuned for more details.   Continue reading

Independent Contractor or Employee?

What are the new laws and penalties?

It is business as usual in California, with stricter employment laws now in effect to vex companies of all sizes.  My challenge as an employment attorney is to advise my clients on compliance with the law, but in a way that contemplates the practical aspects of running a business.  This year I will be focusing on the new penalties for violation of the laws regarding classification of workers as independent contractors instead of employees (one lawsuit under the new law already has been threatened against a client of mine), drafting commissions agreements for salespersons, which will be required for all California salespersons as of January 1, 2013, and revising arbitration agreements to comply with ever-changing judicial opinion.  Click here for more information about arbitration agreements.
