If you have questions about the FTC proposed regulation to ban non-compete agreements, this episode is for you. Kimberly DeCarrea, Founder and Principal at DeCarrera Law, joined host John Ray on this episode of North Fulton Business Radio to share how she serves as an Outside General Counsel for her business clients. In addition to her perspective on the FTC proposal, Kimberly shared some steps a business should take in response, as well as different legal trends in 2023, the obligations businesses can have regarding unclaimed property, and much more.
You are looking for a strategic partnership in a lawyer. Anyone can read and advise on your contracts. But who will tell you whether this contract is a good idea or not?
DeCarrera Law brings together the disciplines of law and accounting to provide clients with customized plans to reduce risk, resolve historical liabilities, and ultimately to be profitable moving forward.
The intersection of law and accounting provides a unique balance between corporate legal and accounting departments to find solutions that might not otherwise be available to practitioners of only one discipline.
Kimberly DeCarrera, Outside General Counsel, DeCarrera Law
Kimberly DeCarrera is an attorney serving clients as Outside General Counsel at DeCarrera Law, LLC. As Outside General Counsel, she does everything that an in-house general counsel would do, but on a part-time or fractional basis. By serving multiple clients at once, you get insights from other businesses and best practices from across different industries. It also doesn’t cost as much as a full-time attorney in-house, which is great for new startups and high-growth mid-market companies that don’t have a need for full-time attorneys.
She has worked in-house in logistics and professional services firms. She is a graduate of Georgia State Law and Georgia State Robinson College of Business with a Masters in Tax. She also has a degree in Management from Georgia Tech.
When not practicing law and advising clients, Kimberly is a big Georgia Tech fan and can be found at football, baseball, or basketball games. Often tailgating in an RV. She runs RV Tailgate Life – a travel and sports website. She also recently adopted a rescue beagle named Layla.
