    Dear Asker, More information regarding your meetings with this individual and surrounding circumstance is required to determine if you have any legal remedies available to you. I recommend consulting with a business attorney as soon as possible. Reason being, if it is determined that you have a viable claim or two, you don't want to run the risk of being prevented from filing suit against this individual due to any statutes of limitation. To give you an idea, in California the statutes of...

    I recommend that you contact a business attorney in your area to discuss this issue and to discuss your legal objectives and goals for your business. Based on the information you have provided only general responses can be given. Generally speaking if a corporation has been dissolved in one state then you you cannot "re-register" or "re-open" it in another. If your corporation had not be dissolved, then you would be able to register it in California as a "foreign corporation," if you were...

    No, as the other attorneys have mentioned. A Delaware based corporation is seen as a "foreign corporation" and needs to take the appropriate steps to register before transacting "intrastate" business in CA. FYI, I have provided a link to the Sec. of State's website (Frequently Asked Questions section) which provides further information pertaining to your question. http://www.sos.ca.gov/business/be/faqs.htm#form-question7 Re "holding a license", Are you referring to a business license?

    As a business entity a PLC, stands for a "Public Limited Company, which is a type of business entity used primarily under UK law and the Republic of Ireland. It's a publicly held company.

    If you have been served with the Complaint, which names you personally as a party to the lawsuit, and you are not currently represented by an attorney, my recommendation to you is to seek out a Business Attorney who has experience in Litigation Defense as soon as possible, to properly defend you in this matter. Without having more information about the circumstances of this case and without having reviewed the complaint, it would be premature to say how you can get rid of yourself as a...

    First, as the other attorneys have mentioned, you have a right to receives copies of anything you sign. If you have not been provided with the copies of the documents that you signed, I would request them. Second, re your use of coupons instead of employee discount, my question for you is why are you being reprimanded for something you claim other employees (including managers) engage in? Are the circumstances pertaining to your situation different? If your actions are not in violation of...

    Dear Asker, In order to lawfully use another company's logos, images of merchandise of others, or sport images on your commercial website, you need to first obtain permission from the trademark and/or copyright owners, normally accomplished via a licensing agreement, which will state the terms of use. Without a license, you will be infringing on the legitimate owner's rights and expose yourself to liabilities.

    An LLC is a type of business entity that provides limited liability for its members (owners), which means that they are not personally liable for any contract, tort, or other obligation of the LLC by virtue of solely being a member. However, pursuant to Corporation Code Section 17101(e), a member can waive this protection and agree to be personally liable for any or all of the debts, obligations, and liabilities of the LLC as long as the waiver agreement is set forth in the Articles of...

    If you currently have a business attorney then you should consult with him/her re this matter. If you do not have one, then its best to consult and retain one to have proper legal advice regarding such business measures taken you (your company) on behalf of the artists that you represent. There may be other factors asides from cost to consider in these type of contracts (such as intellectual property rights & assignments). Best of luck!

    It is very unfortunate that you are being treated this way by your employer. One's place of employment should be a hostile-free, harassment-free environment. To answer your question, you certainly can get legal assistance from an employment attorney. I suggest you contact one and provide all relevant information regarding your problem. Once the attorney has all the necessary information (which will be kept confidential, whether or not you choose to retain), she/he can inform you of the...
