Posted on December 30, 2020

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 […]

Some new owners fund their fledgling business through investors or with money they have set aside for just that purpose while others take out loans. According to a new study, the type of loans that a business owner takes out may be linked to the future success of his or her company. Business vs. Personal Loans Unless a […]

non-disclosure, Naperville contract attorneys

The success of many business owners is dependent on the manner in which they approach relationships with other businesses and entrepreneurs. While a business professional should be as good as his or her word, and a handshake should still carry significant meaning, it is more important than ever that most agreed-upon details should be formalized as a written contract, especially in significant business transactions. For a large number of transactions, the first step is often a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, designed to protect a company’s professional interests. What is a […]

Naperville Business Attorney Discusses Tariff Engineering

Posted on October 27, 2017

In the popular Marvel movie franchise, the “X-Men” are a group of superheroes whose powers are the result of genetic mutations. A large part of the films’ storyline focuses on the debate over whether these mutants have the same rights as regular, “non-mutant” people, leading many to view the theme as an allegory for discrimination on the basis of race, gender, and sexual orientation. But, did you know that in the real world, Marvel takes the opposite position regarding the humanity of its mutants? While many may question why the […]

Naperville Business Law Attorney Looks at the Success Story of Netflix

Posted on October 10, 2017

Today, the name “Netflix” is synonymous with streaming entertainment as a viable alternative to cable, satellite, or over-the-air broadcast programming. When the company first started nearly 20 years ago, however, there was little indication that it would quickly become global entertainment leader. As a business law attorney, I recognize the importance of evolving with the times to remain relevant.
