Posted on January 22, 2021

empowerment, Naperville business law attorneys

Those who own and operate businesses are rarely passive personalities. They are, instead, typically go-getters with an entrepreneurial spirit and the ambition to make a difference in the industries in which they operate. Some business owners take a somewhat directorial approach, telling employees what should be done and how to do it. Other owners are more hands-on, leading by example and not afraid to perform tasks that some might deem too menial or “low” for an owner to be doing. Whatever leadership style you utilize, it is important to get […]

Naperville general counsel lawyers

There is little question that we live in a very litigious society. With the exception of a few landmark pieces of legislation, many of the rules by which we live have evolved from years of lawsuits being filed by one party against another which force the courts to interpret various laws and their applicability under the U.S. Constitution. Sometimes, however, a person will file a civil lawsuit that leaves many people wondering what could possibly have led to such an action. In my practice as a business law attorney, I […]

Naperville business lawyers

There is no question that 2020 has been a year like none of us have ever experienced. We are now nearly eight months into the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recent general election was perhaps the most divisive that we have ever seen in our lifetime.
