What do business litigation attorneys do?

If you are a business owner in Ohio, it is likely that, at some point, you will find yourself involved in a business dispute. Sometimes, those involved can resolve their business disputes without third-party assistance, but, sometimes, disputes escalate and require the help of legal professionals. For some business owners facing disputes, the question is "What do business litigation attorneys do and can they help?"

Debt financing is a valid option for help funding some startups

If you are in the early stages of operation or even the planning and setup of your business, you may find you need additional capital to run things smoothly. Maybe you have a family-owned business or don't want to relinquish any control to venture capitalists and shareholders. If this is the case, a strong option for help with funding is debt financing.

Are my trade secrets really confidential with an NDA in place?

If you have a business that wants to retain an edge over competitors, protect client lists or simply wants what's working well for your company not to end up being a blueprint for every startup and potential competitor out there, you likely need a nondisclosure agreement. While this may be the most effective way of making it clear that information an employee or consultant is privy and should remain confidential, there is no way to guarantee that the information won't be leaked. That is unless you trade in magic and can cast a spell to seal the lips of those who might be compelled to share information for the benefit of another. Since that is not likely to be the case, a well-executed NDA is the next best thing.

Should I expect commercial and residential leases to be the same?

When working within the commercial real estate market, particularly as a lessor or as a lessee, you will benefit from a well thought out and agreed upon written contract. This agreement can go far in establishing a persisting symbiotic relationship between parties. Because contracts are legal and binding, it is imperative that you carefully consider everything you are requesting or agreeing to. An attorney well versed in business litigation and commercial real estate can sit down with you and help you construct an all-inclusive document.
