Someone has taken my company name, is there something I can do about it? 4. I want to expand my business across state lines and internationally, what regulations must I comply with? 5. My product has certain regulations that apply to it, can you shed some light? 6. I want to start a business, can you help determine whether to operate as a sole proprietor, corporation, limited liability company or other structure? 7. I am offering new investment opportunities in my company, what do I need to do beforehand? 8. I am buying a house and the preliminary title report shows an existing easement, can I terminate it? 9. My parents just passed away and left a revocable living trust without assets in it, is probate required? 10. My spouse passed away, is there anything I need to change in my Will or Trust? 11. My business partner didn't hold up their end of the bargain in our agreement. Can I sue them and collect attorney's fees? 12. Is there such a thing as estate planning for businesses? It would be great if we can answer these questions with a single response applicable to everyone. However, these questions are all dependent on many factors and circumstances unique to you. Reach out by phone or email to arrange a consultation if you have the same questions as above or find yourself involved in some legal matter related to business, real estate, estate planning, intellectual property or civil litigation.
