For a refresher on what is now required, see my previous post. You can also listen to a recording of our client-only live Q&A session with attorney Alan Chapell of Chapell & Associates. Of course that brings me to another point: if you haven’t already, you really need to consult your legal counsel to get the details on what your specific situation requires. We aren’t lawyers!
