Settling business litigation allows partnership to continue

Many Georgia companies involved in disputes with one company are unable to move forward with other business partnerships until the issue is resolved. Business litigation can take significant time and financial resources, which could ultimately damage other business relationships. For example, a patent infringement claim filed by Juno Therapeutics against Novartis Pharmaceutical Corp. threatened an immunotherapy partnership Novartis has with a university in the northeast part of the country.

Business litigation: H.J. Heinz Co. accused of patent violation

When entrepreneurs in Georgia and other states invent or design products that are not yet patented by other parties, they may pursue a patent on the particular invention or design. If a patent is obtained, the owner will be able to exclude others from making, selling or using the invention without permission. If another party infringes on the patent, the patent holder may take legal action, and an experienced business litigation attorney may guide him or her through the legal proceedings.

Franchise opportunities go on the road

Georgia entrepreneurs who are looking for a business opportunity often turn to franchises since they involve established products and marketing strategies -- among other things -- that are time tested. However, they can be expensive, and it could take a significant amount of time before any revenues are seen. A new breed of franchise may provide a way to get into a franchise that is less expensive and does not take as long to get up and running.
