Businesses should be aware of potential products liability claims

When it comes to running a business, there are two basic ways to earn a profit: selling products or providing a service. One of the key differences between these two approaches is that when a business is engaged mainly in selling products, it needs inventory space and it needs to focus specifically on the details of the products it sells. Knowing all about the products can help when it comes to closing a sale, but there are other reasons to be knowledgeable about the products as well.

The heart of a confidentiality agreement dispute

Many of our readers in Nevada have probably heard the times we live in referred to as the "Information Age." There is a lot of truth to that concept, as advances in technology and, of course, the Internet, make information a type of currency of commerce. This is why many companies throughout the country use confidentiality agreements to help them contain where information spreads - with the specific intent to keep information in-house.

Resolving business conflicts when they arise

Business owners in Nevada pour their dedication and effort into making their business successful and profitable. It is no easy task to start a business and manage the day-to-day tasks involved in the undertaking, so business owners are usually cautious and concerned about any issues that may affect the business in the future. Unfortunately, it seems like legal conflicts are simply a part of owning a business for many people in Nevada.

What do you need to know about intellectual property disputes?

Business litigation can occur for numerous reasons, such as contract breach disputes or cases involving disputes with employees. However, in the past few decades, another type of dispute has arisen as a potential problem for businesses in Nevada: intellectual property disputes.

"Confidentiality" can be different to the parties in an agreement

For a variety of reasons, businesses in Nevada and throughout the country often find that they need to execute confidentiality agreements, either with another entity or with an employee. These types of agreements allow a business to divulge sensitive information with the comfort of knowing that the party receiving the information is bound, in writing, not to share the information with anyone else.

Can allegations of fraud lead to business litigation in Nevada?

Many business relationships are founded on a simple idea: trust. That is the same for businesses in our state. Unfortunately, there are times when the trust between the two sides of deal or contract can be ruptured. Fraud allegations can certainly cause this type of fracture in the relationship.

How a breach of contract can lead to business litigation

There aren't many business leaders in Nevada who enter into contractual relationships with other entities thinking "This isn't going to work out." On the contrary, most business relationships are developed through good faith negotiations and soundly drafted contracts. However, sometimes a breach of contract issue arises no matter how well the business relationship is going.

Representation before, during a mediation

A previous post on this blog talked about how mediation can be an attractive alternative to a business owner who finds himself or herself either needing to pursue a legal claim against another business or who is on the receiving end of a lawsuit related to a commercial or other business transaction.

The advantages and potential drawbacks to mediation

Business litigation can arise a number of different contexts. For example, a Henderson, Nevada, business might have a dispute with their property insurer over a claim for damages to their building. In other cases, a title insurance issue, such as something involving a boundary dispute, water rights or the like, may spark litigation.

Issues that might arise with confidentiality agreements

Any Nevada business, no matter its size, is going to want to take steps to protect its trade secrets and other information that is uses to stay competitive. Not only is this a way of preserving a business's ability to make a profit, it also is a matter of justice when a Henderson resident has employed his or her time and talent to develop new and creative ideas.
