Tinderbox Presents: Business Brew

  • Fellow Coworking 304 W. Pacific Ave. Suite 210 Spokane, WA (map)

Business Brew is a simple idea—just coffee with a business expert. Business owners and entrepreneurs can ask questions and get real-time answers and feedback. There’s no agenda and no structure. It’s an informal gathering designed to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Spokane region.

Our guest this month is Christal Lam and she'll be talking about "Legal Stuff Every Small Business Needs to Know".

Christal believes business owners should have fun running their business. As the owner of Spokane Business Attorneys, she’s applied this philosophy to her own law firm. Her firm handles all the legal needs of ambitious business owners, so they can focus on their business. Christal is often referred to as a “different kind of attorney” because she approaches her clients with the heart of a teacher. She takes the time to sit down with clients, understand their situation and goals, and craft a plan with creative solutions to move them towards their goals. While in law school, Christal was a Rule 9 Law Clerk with the Washington State Attorney General. As a result of her commitment to give back and serve the community, she was awarded the inaugural Dean’s Platinum Pro Bono Award. Christal was also an associate editor and Technical Editor of the Gonzaga Journal of International Law. She has experience in administrative law, labor and personnel law, employment law, contracts, litigation and business law. Born in Malaysia, Christal loves the heat. For her, there’s nothing better than a hot day with a spicy curry. She was raised in Seattle, but now calls Spokane her home. Depending on the season, you can find Christal cheering on the Zags, hanging out with friends, or snowboarding.
