Entertainment giants battle over contract dispute

Two major names in the California entertainment industry are locked in an ongoing legal battle with one another. The case between Netflix and Fox centers around the question of employment contracts in the industry. Fox sued Netflix after the streaming firm recruited several top executives, and the ongoing case has brought up major issues about how contracts are formed for high-ranking business leaders. Netflix is arguing that Fox's employment contracts are illegal and invalid, and the streaming giant even compared them to slavery.

California landlord sues WeWork over construction noise

A California landlord has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the troubled coworking company WeWork. In a lawsuit filed in San Francisco on Sept. 24, the landlord claims that WeWork frequently engages in noisy and disruptive construction activity during normal working hours in clear violation of its lease agreement. The lawsuit is another setback for a company that is having trouble filling office space and has seen its value plummet in the wake of a failed initial public offering.

Taxes from remote sellers may profit CA

California is known for being one of the states with the highest tax rates. Subsequently, many entrepreneurs choose to live in tax havens, such as Nevada or Texas, to avoid paying state income taxes and other obligations. However, California has found a new way to capitalize on sales taxes from businesses whether that business operates from within California’s borders or not.

Business court to hear state's lawsuit against drug companies

"Business litigation" might be a difficult topic for many people in Irvine to define (both due to their lack of knowledge of the law as well as the complexities involved with corporate and commercial law). If pressed, however, most might cite examples of insider trading, intellectual property theft or copyright infringement as being covered under this particular legal discipline. While such assumptions are often true, many might be surprised to learn exactly what falls under the purview of this branch of the law. Essentially, any questionable or unethical activity that has allegedly been perpetrated by a professional organization may invoke business litigation. 

Business litigation can create a David versus Goliath scenario

California is home to some of the world's largest and most successful companies. Some of the most notable include Apple, Wells Fargo, Alphabet (Google) and Disney. Over the years, these companies have expanded in revenue and size. Because of this, the government and private organizations often seek out ways to check this growth.

How to form a strong partnership

When someone starts a business in Orange County and the surrounding area, one consideration is whether or not to bring on a partner. While there can be benefits to having someone with whom to run a business, a partnership is somewhat like a marriage. Each side needs to take steps to ensure protection in the event the partnership breaks up, and there needs to be ongoing communication and trust throughout the time together. 

Protecting your business during fraud litigation

No matter how large or small your California company is, protecting it from fraud may feel like an overwhelming task. Fraud may lead to devastating financial consequences, especially if you are not sure how to navigate all the legal aspects.

Examining potential consequences of business litigation

When a business lawsuit surfaces, the case could have an impact on the owner of a business and the future of their company in all sorts of ways. Aside from high levels of stress, sleep problems, depression and a great deal of uncertainty, some business owners may experience other challenges due to a lawsuit that is targeting their company. In fact, some of these cases can be so detrimental that they push a business owner to shut their doors altogether. If your business is being taken to court for any reason, whether you are being sued by a current or former staff member, a competitor or one of your business partners, it is essential to be prepared.

Avoiding partnership disputes: It can be done

In the world of business, great partnerships are a story that no one tires of hearing. Whether it’s two longtime friends who had a great idea or two strangers who found one another while trying to solve the same problem, business partnerships are almost a romantic idea.
