PLDO’s recent launch of its online multimedia learning center, Inside Business – Powered Up For Success, is dedicated to assisting entrepreneurs, startups and business owners grow, thrive and succeed in today’s business environment.

The platform is a resource library of information and features a six-part series of podcasts with business attorney Joshua J. Butera on topics ranging from corporate structure and governance options and their tax implications, to alternative work space locations and the advantages and disadvantages of owning or renting commercial space, to the pros and cons of different options available for start-up capital and/or to attract investors. Each podcast has an associated business advisory with further information and insights to help individuals make informed business decisions. Additional materials and resources will be added to the microsite, which is available by visiting Inside Business – Powered Up For Success.

The creation of the platform was led by the firm’s Managing Principal Gary R. Pannone, who has been selected by his peers and clients as Rhode Island’s Best Lawyer® “Lawyer of the Year” for his business practice over several consecutive years and recently recognized by Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly as a 2020 Excellence in the Law Hall of Fame honoree. He will be working with the firm’s team of business lawyers and other attorneys with experience in business-related areas. The firm welcomes suggestions for future podcasts and/or resource material about business concerns or questions owners may have as the center grows. Please contact Attorney Pannone or Attorney Butera at 401-824-5100 or email gpannone@pldolaw.com or jbutera@pldolaw.com.
