Protecting your business rights

Did you know that, as an owner of a company, you have business rights just as you have personal rights? Business rights are different form personal rights, though, and they are often governed by a specific contract or situation. In some cases, it can be difficult to understand what your rights might be, which is why it's a good idea to consult a business law professional if you ever believe your rights are being infringed upon.

One example of how you can protect your business rights involves contracts. If you or your business is involved in a legal contract with a vendor, business partner or customer, then you have some expectations of that other person or entity. You expect them to follow through on the provisions of the contract, and you likely make plans and take actions based on that expectation. If the other party doesn't follow through, then you have a right to seek recourse as defined by the contract.

Another area where you might need assistance leveraging your rights is during bankruptcy procedures. If someone or some organization owes you money, and that person or entity files for bankruptcy, then you may need to file a claim for the debt. A lawyer can help you ensure you don't miss any deadlines, voiding your claim on any settlement that might occur through the bankruptcy.

These are just two examples of many possible situations where your business rights could be in danger. Other situations might include slander or libel issues or disputes among partners. Protecting your business rights proactively helps you reduce risks, enhance revenues and ensure your brand's reputation is intact, and our firm works with you so you understand your rights and what actions to take to assert them.
