James Forrest, principal attorney at The Forrest Firm, a corporate law firm focused on delivering legal expertise to corporate executives in the Research Triangle, NC region, announces the firm’s participation in the Bull City Stampede.

The Bull City Stampede is a cooperative initiative, spearheaded by the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Durham, Inc., the City of Durham, and a host of trade organizations and local businesses, with a singular aim of promoting entrepreneurship in one of the country’s premier hubs for innovation.  With a three-dimensional focus on providing office space, advice, and a spectacular view of the business culture and climate that Durham has to offer start-up businesses, the Stampede will run through the months of April and May of 2011.

Forrest, a seasoned corporate attorney from his days at large firms in the Atlanta, GA and RTP area, knows the challenges and excitement of launching a new business, having launched The Forrest Firm in January. “I see the Bull City Stampede as an excellent opportunity for the Forrest Firm to give back to a community that has already given so much to me personally,” Forrest stated.  “This is a real opportunity for those of us who benefit from Durham’s vibrant business culture to give key advice to new businesses, ensuring that they get off to a great start and begin putting their own stamp on what’s already a great place to live and work.”

The Forrest Firm, as part of its commitment to the Bull City Stampede, will offer free legal consultations to participating executives, delivering legal advice on a variety of matters, including topics concerning corporate structuring, contract negotiation, intellectual property and employment law.  In addition to his work with the Bull City Stampede, Forrest is currently serving on the 2011 Board of Directors for the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce.
