Chapel Hill, NC – September 26, 201 “The biggest legal mistake business make, isn’t a legal mistake at all. It’s a business leadership mistake,” says award winning, best-selling author, and attorney, Hanna Hasl-Kelchner.
Business decisions often get made in a hurry, with incomplete information about their legal consequences. Companies are then surprised when they get sued. It’s an expensive and vicious cycle Hasl-Kelchner has seen repeated in human resource management, contract management and negotiations, and brand management during her more than 30 years of counseling clients.
“In general, business legal issues are predictable surprises,” says Hasl-Kelchner. Good companies are highly effective at responding quickly to legal problems; but, the truly great ones know how to anticipate and avoid them. They’re proactive, not reactive.
“Those are the companies who can grow faster, and enjoy stellar reputations, because they don’t have excess legal baggage diverting their resources or slowing them down.”
That’s why she founded Business M.O., LLC, to help businesses who hate to get sued under-stand how to manage their legal risk more effectively and use the law as a wealth-building tool.
She helps you access your business modus operandi, your “M.O.,” and helps identify areas for improvement by demystifying the law and making it accessible with easy to understand and relevant examples designed to improve legal literacy and develop Legal Leverage® that builds a stronger, more legally savvy company culture equipped to keep your business on the fast track and successfully navigate legal speed bumps, potholes, and landmines.

Bottom line savvy businesses recognize that no one ever really wins a law suit. They learn how to use the law both defensively and offensively as part of a business strategy. They discover how to “leverage”
