Several attorneys from ELPO are presenting at the Kentucky Bar Association annual meeting in Louisville this week on various topics in law.

Heather Coleman Brooks is presenting on Business Law Basics. Attendees will learn business law basics including considerations for the engagement letter/contract, business formation, and operating agreements. Panelists will also discuss tips on obtaining business from emerging businesses and entrepreneurs.

Sarah Jarboe is presenting on Environmental Law for General Practitioners: Best Practices, Actions and Defenses. Environmental law continues to be one of the fastest growing areas of practice. As Kentucky’s population continues to grow, the clashes between and within industrial, commercial, agricultural and residential communities will increase, especially as the impacts of climate change—more extreme weather events, increased flooding, increased smog—manifest throughout the state. Join us for a review of common actions and defenses in relation to environmental torts and best practices in dealing with environmental issues.

Michael Owsley and Regina Jackson will present an employment law update.
