Business disputes include trade secrets accusations

Two former employees of a company outside Louisiana are being sued by the employer for whom they used to work. Both are accused of misusing trade secrets to further a business endeavor of their own. The business disputes were listed in a complaint recently filed in a U.S. District Court.

Solving breach of contract in timely manner often key to success

Business success in Louisiana often depends on any number of various factors. There are many situations that can bring an abrupt halt to productivity and profits. Common obstacles are those that involve breach of contract, which may cause complete shut downs of businesses if left unresolved for too long.

Union workers strike over contract dispute

At a factory outside Louisiana, there has not been a workers' strike in approximately 30 years. That all changed on a recent Monday, however, when union laborers voted to strike against management regarding an ongoing contract dispute. Both sides have weighed in on the topic, and many affected parties are waiting to see what happens next.

Breach of contract issues settled for Mark Wahlberg movie

Many issues can arise during the making of a major Hollywood motion picture (or any business venture in Louisiana, for that matter) that may cause delays or impediments to completion. One recent film starring Mark Wahlberg, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Russel Crowe has been the center of a breach of contract battle between filmmakers and the film's main investor. None of the three stars were mentioned in the dispute that recently settled for millions of dollars.

Contract dispute escalates to public protest

Louisiana employers often face challenges regarding employee relations and written agreements. If a contract dispute arises, it is typically best to address the situation in as amicable and swift a manner as possible. Any problem left unresolved for an extended period of time has the potential to escalate into an even worse situation.
