Secure a great workforce with strong employment agreements

Readers of this New Jersey business law blog may be in the process of setting up or opening their new businesses. After months, or even years, of hard work, they are just a short time away from opening their doors and seeing their sought-after dreams become realities. As they move closer and closer to their start dates, they may begin to look for good individuals to become employees of their new entities.

Is the new year the right time for a new estate plan?

Many New Jersey residents who committed to New Year's resolutions may have started to lose their way already with regard to accomplishing their annual goals. However, it is important for readers of this Camden County business and estate planning law blog to know that it is never too late for them to take on their legal needs and aspirations.

Litigation can be difficult for small businesses to manage

Major corporate entities often staff dozens, if not hundreds, of attorneys to manage the many legal disputes that arise within and outside of the entity's organization. However, small businesses in New Jersey often are not so lucky and may only consult with legal counsel when they are pressed by legal challenges they do not understand. When a small business finds itself facing business litigation, it can be a hard for a business owner to know what to do.

How can mitigation affect my breach of contract damages?

A breach of contract occurs when one party to a contract fails in some way to fulfill its side of the agreement. New Jersey businesses may find themselves embroiled in breach of contract claims when their venders, partners and other business associates do not perform as they were expected to under the terms of their agreements. When a business wins a breach of contract lawsuit it is generally entitled to some damages for the losses it incurred.

Business transactions can change entities from private to public

An initial public offering, also known as an IPO, occurs when a private company offers for sale shares in its entity and becomes a publicly traded business. There are many reasons that New Jersey businesses have IPOs, including but not limited to the need for capital, desires to grow and other strategic planning rationales. However, not all private businesses want to undergo IPOs in order to grow. An alternative to pursuing an IPO is to pursue a reverse merger.

Increasing interest rates may impact your estate planning

At present, New Jersey residents are enjoying relatively low interest rates thanks to previous decisions made by the Federal Reserve. However, it appears that in the not-too-distant future the Fed may be raising rates to higher levels. These increases could have an impact on the value of the estate plans that some people have chosen to create.
