Consider liability issues during business formation in Georgia

Starting a new business is exciting. Many Georgia entrepreneurs happily anticipate the prospect of being their own boss and fulfilling their dreams of being a business owner. However, liability issues must be considered during the business formation process in order to reduce the probability of those dreams being shattered if the business is sued.

U.S. Supreme Court opens door for more business litigation

Most Georgia residents are familiar with the laser printer and ink cartridge manufacturer, Lexmark International.

Company officials may have hoped a decision from the United States Supreme Court would put an end to the litigation, but instead, the court has given the green light for more litigation.

Schlaflys may have to file business litigation to keep their name

Georgia residents may recognize the name Phyllis Schlafly as the founder of the Eagle Forum, a conservative group that began in 1972. More than 20 years ago, Schlafly's nephew began a small brewery. Now, the majority owners of that company want to trademark the Schlafly name. Of course, the Schlaflys are not going to give up their surname without a fight, and if the two sides are unable to settle their differences, business litigation may be in the offing.

Latest mergers and acquisitions: Men's Warehouse, Jos. A. Bank

Georgia fans of Men's Warehouse may be pleased to know that the company emerged the victor in a battle with Jos. A.

Five months ago, the two companies began by trying to outbid each other to determine which company would be the surviving entity.
