A Legal Guide to Starting an Art Business

with David Lizerbram

California Lawyers for the Arts invites artists of all disciplines to join us for an interactive presentation about the legal aspects of starting an art business. Attorney and Business Law Strategist David Lizerbram will provide an overview of different types of business structures (Sole Proprietorship, LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp, etc.), what they mean, and steps for establishing and maintaining them.

The event will also include a brief discussion of business best practices for protecting your work and intellectual property through written agreements.

He was born in Philadelphia and raised in North County San Diego, California. After graduating from the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television (now the School of Cinematic Arts) and USC’s Marshall School of Business, he received his J.D. from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.
