Law and Business Center to Explore Undocumented Entrepreneurs
Posted January 10, 2012
The Western New England University Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship will host a presentation on “Undocumented Entrepreneurs: Business Structure and Immigration Compliance” by David Weber, assistant professor at Creighton University School of Law, on Tuesday, January 24, beginning at noon in the Blake Law Center Commons. The event is free and open to the public.
Weber’s lecture will address the unique legal and financial issues faced by undocumented entrepreneurs. He will explore the business planning, formation, tax liability, financing, and local/state licensing, and compliance problems that undocumented entrepreneurs may face.
Prior to joining Creighton’s faculty, Weber worked at the law firm of Fredrickson & Byron, P.A., in Minneapolis, where he did corporate work including work in mergers and acquisitions and general corporate counseling and entity formation with a focus on undocumented entrepreneurs. In addition, Weber has served and consulted with many nonprofits specifically regarding the issues that arise when unauthorized immigrants become business owners.
The Western New England University Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship was established to provide graduate business and law students with an opportunity to offer practical consultation to entrepreneurs. The initiative uses the combined resources of the School of Law and College of Business to foster new business development.
