Michele Raia has been a practicing attorney in Cleveland, Ohio for 26 years. Throughout her career, she has primarily represented businesses of all sizes in a variety of matters including formation and start-up, purchase and sale of businesses, contract matters, real estate purchases and leases, employment matters (handbooks, agreements, hiring and firing, FMLA, ADA, workers’ compensation, unemployment, human resources issues, etc).
For the last 18 years, Michele has operated her own law firm which focuses on helping entrepreneurs set-up their business entities and their relationships with their employees, contractors, customers and vendors so they are protected and in compliance with applicable laws. Michele holds her clients hand throughout this start-up process and then continues to serve as their legal advisor as they grow their businesses.
Michele is currently developing on-line programs to educate entrepreneurs on the start-up process generally (not state specific) and what steps they should take to ensure that their business is “done right”!
Michele’s website is currently under construction but will be available soon at BusinessStartUpDoneRight.com. In the meantime you can leave your name and email address on the site to be notified when her programs go live.
