Tips for selling your business

Thinking about selling your business? You need to consider these issues before making any final agreements. The process of selling a business involves negotiation and leverage, much like when incentives are given to employees for a job well done. When selling your business, it is vital to have a letter of intent to protect your interests.

California water rights can be confusing

Water rights govern how a person or entity can use, hold and distribute water on properties.

Understanding a few zoning law construction terms

Business owners and managers dealing with construction and zoning issues must often deal with complex paperwork. That paperwork usually involves a lot of legal and building vocabulary that isn't always used in daily conversation. Understanding these terms is important to ensuring your projects follow appropriate zoning laws. Working with a construction or commercial business lawyer to understand all documents and requirements for your projects can also help you avoid problems in the future.
