Why is it better to get business agreements in writing?

You might be comfortable with using handshakes and promises to confirm deals and agreements, especially when it comes to friends and family.

Contracts enable you to protect yourself and your business should disagreements, conflicts or contractual violations arise.

Buy a retirement community or start one from scratch?

Perhaps you work in a retirement community or have always had special reasons to want to own one. You have decided the time is coming, and the main question weighing on your mind is whether to buy an existing community or start one from scratch.

Can a noncompete agreement protect your trade secrets?

When you have spent a great deal of time building your business’s success and reputation, the last thing you want is for someone with inside information to use it against you. This might occur when a former employee uses your company’s secrets, such as an exclusive formula, financial information or your clients’ contact info, to gain an unfair competitive advantage over you. You might find a solution by creating a noncompete agreement for your employees to sign, but you and other Georgia employers need to understand the elements of a fair noncompete contract.

Pursuing the proper legal protections, however, can be challenging. It's important to leverage the right tools for different types of intellectual property.
