Businesses are constantly making transactions: buying and selling products, services and shares or partnerships in the company. It’s a never-ending exchange. At Dozier Miller, we understand the intricate inner-workings of business transactions. As businesspeople ourselves, we appreciate the importance of protecting your rights and interests through every transaction.
We hear the word “corporation” all the time in business law, but what does it mean legally, and how does the law handle it? A corporation is a legal entity that can act much like a person; it can enter into contracts, sue and be sued and carry out business transactions.
It takes careful evaluation and planning to structure mergers and acquisitions that offer the greatest benefit to your company. That’s where Dozier Miller’s mergers and acquisitions team can help.
Workplaces can be stressful environments, especially when there’s tension between employer and employee. Employment law exists to protect employees’ rights and employers’ interests when legal disputes arise in the workplace.
Just as the law protects our ownership rights to our homes and possessions, it protects ownership of intellectual property: designs, inventions, creative works. For businesses, protecting intellectual property means ensuring value.
There’s nothing like tedious paperwork to take the excitement out of launching a new business. Mounting questions and research about the proper legal steps can slow your momentum if you don’t have a clear understanding of the formation process.
Contracts exist to protect the rights and interests of individuals and businesses on both sides of a transaction. Contracts are legally binding, so if either side breaks the contract by failing to provide specified goods or services, or failing to meet certain conditions of the contract, the other party can file a legal complaint.
We know that early prevention of litigation is usually the most cost-effective way for a business to operate, but if your business is facing a lawsuit or legal action, you can count on Dozier Miller to be tenacious in representing and guarding your interests.
At the most basic level, a non-compete agreement is a contract in which the employee/contractor agrees to avoid actions that could damage the employer’s business. But there’s more to it than that.
