We are a new, very small nonprofit based in California and plan to establish a "sister" org somewhere in Europe. As I understand it, the new org would need to be registered as an independent entity with the applicable national govt. We are thinkin...
So much is going to depend on where you think these other entities will be. You of course would need contracts in place with an independent entity working on behalf of your non-profit, but again the cross-border issues will be rather complex. Hopefully your counsel has international experience to compliment that in the non-profit area.See question
In the early stages of starting an investment fund, which will manage capital for both individual and institutional clients. We have multiple partners involved and plan to form an LLP. There will be two share classes (voting & non-voting). Th...
There are many potential choices depending on where you think you'll be raising money and from whom. Many institutional investors prefer the usual suspects for incorporation, which are Delaware, Nevada and Wyoming. Each has particular things that may make a difference in how your fund is perceived and how you can accommodate their particular needs. And of course, there are issues you need to consider for the GP of the fund, and how you will want fees to flow. Of primary importance in forming any hedge fund that has a hope of being marketed in earnest is having (a) an auditor and (b) a fund administrator. You can thank Bernie Madoff and Sam Israel, among others, for that. And what does this have to do with your state of incorporation? Service providers, investors and consultants will ask you about the thought process you used to make your fund formation choices. So choose carefully and discuss your options with counsel experienced in fund formation.See question
I am an entrepreneur looking to start a microlending/crowd funding site. Just looking for some pointers.
Having securities counsel assist you on the regulatory aspects of crowdfunding would be a good thing to do. The FINRA website (www.finra.org) contains useful information.See question

I have a contract to do work for a former employer. In the contract it states that disputes must be resolved through arbitration. The company has not paid my last invoice. It is outstanding since May (14 day due date). I cannot get in contact with...
As one commentator has noted, if you file in court the other side can move to compel arbitration. But in terms of getting your case started, it may make more sense to file a case in court and make them appear and then see where they stand on the arbitration agreement. Where you file in Staten Island will depend on the amount of the claim, so you might have to file in the Civil Part of Richmond County.
An attorney should be able to guide you on interpreting the arbitration clause and the procedure to file a claim. It might not be as onerous as you suspect. And awards can be converted into judgments through the award confirmation process.See question
I know there are stock brokers, and investment advisors, as well as more simple options such as ameritrade. I would just like to know where I start, or how to locate the company, determine if there's the option to invest, and inquire about doing s...
Some publicly traded companies have "dividend reinvestment programs," or DRIPS, where the buyer can buy the stock directly from the company through its transfer agent. You should check the respective company's website or look on the internet for DRIP programs.See question
I am creditor. Debtor filed bankruptcy November 2015. Debtor listed us on bankruptcy but we never received paperwork and only found out today that they had filed. Proof of claim deadline has passed. What rights do I have now.
Most bankruptcy counsel will tell you that "notice" is the lynchpin of any proceeding. If you didn't receive notice and the debtor listed you on the schedule, you will likely need to seek leave of the court to file a proof of claim. You will need bankruptcy counsel to do this through appropriate motions.See question

Your school should have a handbook or policy guide that governs how such disputes are to be resolved. Have an attorney in Nashville check it out for you. The Nashville Bar Association has an attorney referral program that may be useful.See question
Yes this is this persons first conviction. How do they not have to do some type of program, community service, probation...ect?
This person may be in the Eastern District of Tennessee, and depending on whether the person is in state or federal court, private counsel or a public defender will be needed with experience in that court. Your question is a little twisted, as you mention a "conviction" versus a "charge." Two very different things that require skilled defense counsel to review.See question
