Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
Douglas Y. Park, Principal of DYP Advisors, a corporate attorney and strategist in Silicon Valley, will teach Gain a Business Advantage Through the Law for the Stanford University Continuing Studies Program during Summer 2012. The course provides an introduction to business law concepts and offers practical ways to use the law strategically.
Some of the topics the class will cover are:
- Understand how legal moves can support your company’s strategy
- Identify, understand, and negotiate contract terms that can help you create value and manage risk
- Use compliance efforts to strengthen the company’s operations and culture
- Protect intellectual property that is valuable to your business
- Leverage better governance practices to obtain better results
The class is intended for business owners and managers who want to learn how to proactively and thoughtfully use the law not only to stay out of trouble, but also to achieve their business goals. Participants will learn how to better work with their attorneys and utilize their expertise. Classes will consist of lectures, discussions, and applications to situations which companies of all sizes and industries face.
Mr. Park explains the purpose of the course: “Your legal decisions should promote your strategic, financial, and operational objectives, not just reduce legal risk. This approach helps business people intelligently use the law to their advantage.”
Beginning on June 26, 2012, classes will be held on eight consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6:45 pm to 9:00 pm on the Stanford campus. Further details, including registration information, are available on the class page on the Stanford University Continuing Studies website.
