Navigating Small Business Legal Issues in the Digital World
Today’s guest on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Jamie Lieberman, Esq, founder of Hashtag Legal.
Lieberman started her legal career more than 15 years ago in New York City, where she worked as a commercial litigator for a major global firm and for a Federal District Judge on criminal and civil cases.
But she never felt like the traditional law path was the right fit for her, so she decided to leave her job. While getting a handle on her freelance law career, she started blogging. She had previously run a blog about life in New York City that had gained a following, and she returned to the world of blogging just as some bloggers were beginning to make money (in the pre-influencer world).
She worked for a company that ran conferences for bloggers, who asked her to give a talk on legal issues that bloggers face. That talk was the seed that blossomed into Hashtag Legal. Her firm is now an all-female, virtual law office focused on serving influencers, creatives, entrepreneurs, service providers, and marketers.
Today on the podcast, Lieberman discusses the ins and outs of internet law, from how to draw up a contract that protects creatives but keeps their clients happy, to how small businesses should navigate privacy laws like GDPR.
Questions I ask Jamie Lieberman:
- What led you to found Hashtag Legal?
