Yoga Law in Wisconsin:
Strong and Calm Advocacy with a Conscience
By Attorney Emily Dudak Leiter
September 25, 2018
Yoga is an important part of the lives of the shareholders and employees at The Law Center. It helps guide how the firm is run. Shareholder meetings often occur in yoga clothes. Work schedules flex around yoga classes and family. The firm offers its employees a weekly yoga class and encourages a healthy work/life balance. The firm also applies a yogic mindset to its practice of law: focusing on children and families in crisis and providing strong and calm advocacy with a conscience.
With its yoga law practice, The Law Center merges its passion for yoga with its experience in business law and transactional matters. The firm offers studio owners and yoga instructors help with the following:
- Business entity formation
- Releases, waivers of liability, and intake forms
- Intellectual property protection
- Advice regarding background checks, liability, insurance coverage, and teaching practices such as physical assists
- Employment and independent contractor agreements
- Non-compete agreements
- Commercial leases and real estate transactions
- Taxation issues
- Issues involved in online class offerings
- Representation in negotiations for workshops, trainings, festivals, and other special events
- Speaking about legal issues at yoga teacher trainings
The Law Center’s goal is to offer studio owners and yoga instructors the comprehensive legal support they need, so that they can focus on their teaching and their own yoga practice.
The primary attorney on these cases, Emily Dudak Leiter, is currently completing her 200-hour teacher training with Kramas Yoga LLC in Madison, Wisconsin. The Law Center attorneys practice throughout Wisconsin in the following areas: adoption, assisted reproduction, LGBTQ issues, immigration, custody, child support, divorce, paternity, school law, foster parent and grandparent rights, guardianships, life and estate planning, probate, business law, taxation, real estate transactions, and yoga law.
