What should you consider before a business lawsuit?

Before filing a lawsuit, or being the recipient of one, there are a few different things one must think about. If someone files an allegation, take it seriously. Even if the allegations are false, not taking the case seriously could give them a foothold to actually pursue a successful claim.

Common legal claims between businesses

There's an old saying that a business isn't successful until it is sued. While there are plenty of businesses that are successful that have not been involved in a lawsuit, it is not uncommon for an enterprise to be accused of breaking the law. If a business owner is served with a summons and complaint, it may have a number of statements and accusations that may be untrue or difficult to understand (or agree with).

Tacos and tequila: good idea or bad idea for Taco Bell?

Far to our north, in the city of San Francisco, a new Taco Bell restaurant opened this month that is unlike its fast-food brethren.

What is a deceptive trade practice?

No successful California business has a tunnel-vision focus on a sole concern or objective. The principals of any viable enterprise -- whether it be a financial firm, auto dealership, retail store or other entity -- are necessarily -- and always -- focused on multi-faceted and integrated objectives.
