Litigation involving a foreign company

There are many facets of business litigation that business owners come across, and we have covered many on our blog. It is important to remember that there are additional issues which can further complicate these cases, such as a lawsuit which involves a foreign company. If you are an Ohio business owner and have found yourself in the middle of a lawsuit with a company that is located outside of the U.S., it is important to know which options you have and move ahead in the most sensible direction, especially since these suits can be particularly complicated.

Litigation and your small business

Sometimes, when people hear the words "business litigation" they picture a large corporation or an incident involving a multinational that has received a lot of attention in the news. However, lawsuits targeting businesses can be problematic for small, family-owned businesses as well. If you run a small business, it is important to be aware of the different areas of concern regarding your business and identify the best course of action in the event that your business is taken to court. Some business owners do not think about litigation very much until they find themselves in this difficult position, but preventative measures are also important.

How many sexual harassment charges are filed per year?

Business owners may be very stressed out when an employee (or a group of employees) file a complaint over employee rights violations such as denied breaks or denied overtime. However, allegations of discrimination and sexual harassment can be especially concerning and these are issues that have created many problems for workers and companies alike in Ohio. Sexual harassment allegations can damage a business' good name and they can also bring other consequences, such as financial penalties. Moreover, victims of sexual harassment may also experience a number of setbacks, which highlights the importance of preventing unlawful behavior in the workplace.

When an estate dispute involves siblings

We have covered a number of estate issues on our blog, but some are especially emotional and difficult to work through. For example, estate-related disputes which involve siblings and other family members can create rifts in families and high levels of stress and other negative emotions. Whether you are a beneficiary who suspects that an estate is not being managed properly or you are the executor of an estate and are struggling with beneficiaries who claim you have breached your fiduciary duties, this can very tough, especially if the disagreements involve siblings.

When an employee takes legal action

We have covered some of the different reasons why business owners find themselves in court, from contract disputes to deceptive trade practices. However, there are many more reasons why you may find yourself in the courtroom. For example, a current or former employee may decide to file a lawsuit, claiming that the company they work for or used to be employed by is responsible for their suffering. From a slip-and-fall accident to allegations of discrimination or sexual harassment, there are many different allegations that can result in litigation. Moreover, the outcome of these cases can be incredibly damaging for businesses of all sizes, not only in terms of financial penalties but reputation and future business as well.
