Formation & Organization

Starting a business is an incredibly exciting prospect. To give your business a solid foundation, you will need to understand the different types of business entities and decide which one is right for your business. Each type of entity comes with it’s own benefits and there is no one size fits all solution. Choosing the wrong type of entity could limit growth potential or set the business up for failure.

Agreement Revisions & Drafting

A well-written contract can protect your business and assets from costly litigation down the road. Before entering into a contract, you should take steps to protect yourself, you business, and your assets by engaging an experienced business attorney to draft and/or review your contract to ensure it is in your best interest.

Breach of Contract

Businesses rely on other individuals and parties to help them run day-to-day operations and achieve overall success. Contracts help dictate exactly what is expected of each party so the relationship can run smoothly. Sometimes a party will violate the terms of a contract, and when this occurs, it can devastate a business.

Trademark & Intellectual Property

Ideas can be some of the most valuable assets a business owns. Because of this, businesses need to make sure they protect their valuable ideas through copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets. However, the laws regarding intellectual property can be incredibly complex, and will often require an experienced attorney to protect or defend against claims of intellectual property rights violations.

Fraudulent Checks

When a recipient accepts a check, they have no way of knowing whether or not the funds promised on the check are actually available. When a check bounces, it may be caused by a simple mistake or misunderstanding, but oftentimes the writer of the check knew the check was bad. In Texas, check fraud is illegal, and victims of bad checks have a right to seek repayment of the funds.

Wage and Hour Violations

The federal government sets strict guidelines for how employers are required to compensate employees. While these regulations are helpful for employees, the laws regarding employee pay can be complex. Many employers violate federal wage and hour regulations without even realizing it.

Discrimination

It is never acceptable for an employee to be discriminated against at work. People who face discrimination in the workplace might feel like they have no recourse, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Discrimination is illegal, and if an employee is being discriminated against, they have a legal right to seek compensation.

Whistleblower Lawsuits

When an employee learns his or her employer has committed fraud or other wrongdoing, he or she might be afraid to report these actions for fear of retaliation. Fortunately, there are several laws in place to protect those who come forward to report illegal activity committed by their employers.
