Posted on September 25, 2019

Jimmy John's, Naperville business law attorney

In my practice as a business law attorney, I have helped many clients with the complex process of selling their companies. For many, the decision to sell is one of the most difficult choices of their professional lives. For others, building and selling a successful company at a profit was the goal from the very beginning. Selling a business, however, is not a decision that only small business owners must make. Large, well-known businesses are sold to even bigger companies on a fairly regular basis. The most recent example of […]

brand partnership, Naperville business attorney

When you own a business, you need to find ways to set your company apart from your competitors. In some industries, you might be able to do so by offering the best products, while in others offering products or services at the lowest price might help you stand out from the crowd. In certain sectors, however, most of the “players” might offer similar products at similar prices while relying on brand loyalty on the part of customers. This scenario seems to be the present case with fast-food and casual dining […]

Naperville Business Lawyer Talks About Empowering Your Employees to Help the Company

Posted on September 13, 2019

employees, Naperville business law attorneys

While no two people are exactly the same, there is a characteristic that is commonly shared by those who start and own businesses. Business owners are generally motivated individuals who are willing to invest time, money, and energy into a concept or a commercial venture. Along with this willingness often comes a general desire to be in control of the situation. As a business owner myself, as well as a business law attorney, I have come to understand that the level of control that business owners often desire is not […]

Posted on September 10, 2019

As a business owner and a business law attorney, I recognize that it is extremely important for successful companies to continue to look for ways in which they can connect with potential customers. I also believe that business owners should have a strong awareness of the current social and economic conditions of the areas where they operate. Perhaps that is why the recent announcement of a new product from Hasbro caught my attention in the way that it did. According to the toymaker, a new version of a classic board […]

By now, unfortunately, you are probably familiar with the typical responses to each new report of a mass shooting. On one side, there is a vocal contingent of politicians, concerned parents, and others pushing for stricter gun control laws while on the other side, there is an equally vocal group that insists that new laws are both unnecessary and possibly in violation of the Second Amendment to U.S. Constitution. Regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, there is little question that mass shootings are tragic events that must […]

Naperville Business Attorney Talks About Developing an Effective Employee Handbook

Posted on August 28, 2019

employee handbook, Naperville business lawyer

If you own a company that employs just one or two people, there is a good chance that you are very familiar with your employees. With that familiarity comes the trust that they will usually act in the best interests of your business. As time goes by and your company expands, however, you will probably need more employees, many of whom you might not know so well. Before you reach this stage, it is a good idea for you to create a list of company policies, guidelines, and procedures for […]

Naperville Business Lawyer Discusses Succession and Planning for Small Business Owners

Posted on August 23, 2019

succession, Naperville business lawyer

In my practice as a business law attorney, I have helped many clients realize their dreams of owning their own businesses—a large number of which are small businesses with just a few employees. While I certainly take a great deal of pride in assisting small business owners, I am troubled by what I see as a trend of business owners who have minimal or no plans for the future of their companies. By “future,” I mean the time after the business’s founder and first owner is no longer able or […]

Naperville Business Lawyer on Dispute of Taco Tuesday Trademark

Posted on August 15, 2019

trademark, Naperville Business Law Attorney

I realize that it seems like I have been discussing quite a few trademark disputes over the last few months, and to be fair, I have done just that. First, it was the Tom Brady filing, then I mentioned trademarks when talking about choosing a good name for your business, and finally, I covered the lawsuit filed against Netflix by the company behind the Choose Your Own Adventure books. However, as a business law attorney, it is hard to ignore important items such as these when they come up, even […]

Naperville Business Lawyer Talks About Trademark Infringement Lawsuit Against Netflix

Posted on August 9, 2019

trademark, Naperville business law attorney

Depending upon the industry in which your company operates, you might need to be very careful to avoid violating existing trademarks and copyright protections. If you own a printing or publishing business, for example, you cannot sell or distribute any works without having the proper licensing rights in advance. In my practice as a business law attorney, I have helped many clients obtain the appropriate licenses for the products they wish to sell. I have also worked with others in securing trademark and copyright protections for their intellectual property. It […]

Naperville Business Lawyer Discusses the Announcement of Field of Dreams MLB Game

Posted on August 8, 2019

Whether you run a small, one-person business or you are on the board of a huge, multi-national commercial entity, it is important for you to be constantly thinking of ways to market your business. If your customer base begins to lose interest, your bottom line will inevitably suffer. This is even true for organizations that dominate their industry—including professional sports leagues with anti-trust exemptions. As a business law attorney, I am always interested to see how sports leagues such as the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA), and […]
