Holland, Miller Speak to Local Entrepreneurs Gathered in Bootcamp

On January 12, 2017, Joseph Greenwald & Laake principals Jay Holland and Jerry Miller spoke and gave on-the-spot legal advice to local entrepreneurs at a boot camp program in Prince George’s County. The event, with the theme “Take Your Business to the Next Level,” was sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurial Development of Prince George’s Community College, in Hyattsville, Md.

Miller spoke on the topic of tax and property issues affecting small businesses, and Holland spoke about employment issues affecting small businesses. Both donated their time in giving their presentations and in engaging in one-on-one meetings after their presentations with individual entrepreneurs who were attending.

Miller said, “This was a great event at which everyone gained something. We were able to put our finger on the pulse of entrepreneurship in this fast-growing county where we are located and to meet and advise people who are growing their businesses. The entrepreneurs obtained useful advice on how to build their businesses and avoid legal pitfalls.”

The Center for Entrepreneurial Development describes itself as “a catalyst for the county’s growing economy” that “prepares local entrepreneurs to take full advantage of business opportunities in Prince George’s County and throughout the Washington Metropolitan region.”

Holland is the Chair of the firm’s Labor, Employment and Whistleblower practice, and Miller is a principal in Joseph Greenwald & Laake’s Business Services Group.

The event was co-sponsored by the Prince George’s County Bar Association and by the Maryland State Bar Young Lawyer’s Section Pro Bono Committee.
