Are your shares losing value? Who is to blame?

Owning shares in a business means you hold a portion of the ownership in that company. In many ways, this is an ideal way to earn money because you can purchase shares in a business and, with little effort, reap profits when the business does well. However, if the business loses money, you may have little control over what happens to your investment unless you own a significant portion of the company.

Illegitimate breach of contract claims

Many times, when a lawsuit arises over allegations that a party failed to respect the terms of a contract, the claims are valid. However, it is important to point out that some of these cases are the result of completely false claims. Sometimes, a person may knowingly accuse another of failing to respect the terms of a contract even though they know the accusations are completely false. In other instances, someone may have misunderstood or misinterpreted the terms of an agreement, causing them to take legal action even though their claims are illegitimate. Either way, these cases should be approached with care.

Resolving a contract dispute without litigation

We know how challenging contract disputes can be, not only for those who own large corporations but small business owners as well. Contract disputes surface for a myriad of reasons and they can bring a number of devastating consequences into a business owner's life. Depending on the outcome of the case, significant repercussions could spell disaster for the entire company as well. Sometimes, these disputes can be resolved without going to court, but in other instances, litigation may be necessary. It is pivotal for business owners who are in the middle of these disagreements to go over all options on the table closely.

Should you end a business partnership?

At first, your business partnership seemed like a dream, a match made in heaven, your load got easier and your business ran smoothly and successfully with your partner, but recently it feels less mutually beneficial than it is worth. Business partnerships have many benefits, but sometimes things do not work out the way you planned and a partnership can feel like more a burden than a helping hand.

Did you receive a subpoena for a deposition?

If you are involved in a legal dispute with an employee, client or business associate, you may already be feeling a little overwhelmed, whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, especially if you have recently received a subpoena to appear for a deposition. A deposition is a critical part of litigation, and understanding its purpose and process may help you approach your role calmly and confidently.
