Defend your intellectual property with contracts

When you run a business, your priority is to make money and to make a good impression on the community. You've built your business from the ground up, and you spend time making sure your company is one of a kind. One of the ways you do this is by offering services that people can't get elsewhere. In order to protect those services and to make them available to your clients only, you may have made your employees sign paperwork that said they wouldn't share that information with competitors.

How is fault determined in rear-end collisions?

One of the most common types of accidents is rear-end collisions, which occur when the car behind you fails to stop in time and hits the back of your car. These are also possible if the car behind you didn't leave enough room and gets pushed into your car when someone hits it. Whether the accident is due to stopping too closely, texting and driving or another type of distraction, these accidents have very real consequences for victims.

Protect your business with a notarized contract

In business, you often work with contracts. Getting the contract right is just part of the process; on top of getting it signed, you may need to make sure you can provide proof that the signature belongs to the other party. This is typically done with a notary public, so you can have the peace of mind that your contract is legally secure and bound.

What do I need to know before selling my business?

While it may seem like selling a business would be less complicated or quicker than buying one, this isn't always the case. While some of the steps are similar, there are special considerations owners selling their businesses need to keep in mind to ensure as smooth a transaction as possible. Knowing what to expect can help you avoid the common pitfalls and help you move on to the next chapter of your life.

With contracts, pressure is not the same as duress

If the only reason that you signed a contract in Colorado was that you were under duress, you can probably get right out of that contract with very little effort. However, it's critical to know what duress is and how it works, and you need to understand that it's not the same as being pressured to sign.
