What to do after a data breach to avoid potential lawsuits

When a business deals with sensitive customer information, it is important to implement measures to avoid a data breach. Many companies employ a range of preventive measures, including thorough employee training and sophisticated security software.

Tips: avoiding business litigation (PART 1)

No matter how big or small your company may be, the thought of having to face a business dispute can be quite frightening. Unfortunately, in many cases, it may be inevitable that a business dispute will come up in the lifetime of your business. Of course, that dispute could be handled in a handful of ways and that’s where the real issues can occur.

Google partner company sues Uber for theft of technology

Uber has been having a rough few weeks. After the company reduced surge pricing at a New York airport when protesters of the recent travel ban flooded the gates, users of Uber deleted their accounts en masse. Then there have been the sexual harassment claims over the last week that have haunted the company, in some form or another, since its inception.

Qualcomm sued by Apple for royalty, licensing issues

The news cycle has been dominated by the Trump administration and its actions in the last 10 days. While this is certainly understandable and necessary for the media to report on, this is a business litigation blog -- and so in that respect, we'd like to focus your attention on a business story that may not have caught your attention recently given the national issues that are at the forefront at this time.

Why business fraud is such a complex legal matter

When you hear of cases that involve fraud and business, you would like to think that it is something that is done to you (or to the victimized party) from the outside, mainly because that seems the most logical way for fraud to occur. But, in fact, many business fraud cases actually happen from inside -- a rogue employee or someone with nefarious intent undermines your company and deliberately neglects his or her fiduciary duty to steal money or assets from the company.

What forms of bankruptcy are available to businesses?

When a business is deciding whether to go bankrupt or not, there are usually three chapters of bankruptcy that they would be considering. The first is Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a fairly standard form of bankruptcy whether you are a business or an individual. In Chapter 7, liquidation is the process by which the bankrupt entity fulfills its debts, while also clearing out other debts through discharge. For a business, Chapter 7 usually means the end. It is also a good option for companies that don't have significant assets.

Pet food companies settle contentious lawsuit

Pet food may not be the industry that you would immediately consider when you hear the phrase "business litigation," but for a few years, two rival pet food companies have been locked in a false advertising lawsuit. Nestle Purina, which makes numerous pet food brands, filed a lawsuit against Blue Buffalo, which is a pet food company that says they use natural ingredients in their products. It is central to their ad campaign and packaging.

Movement against non-competes gains steam

As you may have heard, there is a movement by the federal government to roll back non-compete agreements. The White house wants a crackdown on these contracts so that employees have more freedom in their movement if they want to change jobs. This is certainly understandable -- but it also puts a lot of pressure on employers too. Companies want their secrets, work processes, services and products protected, and these non-competes do help them in this regard.
