What are some red flags to look for when working with clients?

If you provide a professional service in California, you know that clients are an essential aspect of doing business. However, some partnerships are more trouble than they're worth and could lead to legal issues if the problem client claims you failed to deliver on your promises. Lifewire offers the following tips in this case, which can help you identify some common red flags.

What is a non-disclosure agreement?

As a business owner in California, you know ideas are worth their weight in gold. That is why it is so important that you safeguard your most valuable ideas when sharing information with others. Forbes explains how non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) offer such protection, while also detailing the key elements of these documents.

Understanding how deceptive advertising affects the consumer

When consumers get excited about new product advertisements, they may become so distracted by the potential benefits of that product that they fail to identify misleading statements or even obvious lies the company may make during advertising. At the same time, there are companies that are exceptionally successful at describing a product in a way that makes it seem to be something that it is not. As such, consumers may misunderstand the message and end up being the victim of false advertisement. 

Assessing responsibility and liability for developers

When consumers invest in a product, they are relying on it to function as advertised. Additionally, they are counting on the company who makes the product to deliver thorough and honest information about how the product works, what it is used for and how it should be maintained. As a result, they expect the outcome to be as the seller describes and to not suffer any serious malfunctions. While many California companies are careful to complete thorough product testing and analysis before launching, there are times when defects can cause inconvenience or in serious cases, injuries to unsuspecting consumers. 

What should I look out for when choosing a client?

No matter the industry, California business owners rely on their clients to grow and succeed. While most of the people you work with will be eager to hear your input on their project, other clients will be more difficult to assist. Not only can this create frustration, it may also lead to legal issues if your client disputes your work. If you're concerned about the impact of working with a so-called "problem" client, Forbes offers the following advice to identify issues before they occur.

How to safeguard lucrative business ideas

For entrepreneurs in California, innovative ideas can bring about a great deal of success. That's why many business owners have concerns about their ideas being stolen by competitors and used for financial gain. There are steps you can take to prevent this from happening however, as illustrated by Inc.

How can I prevent contract disputes from occurring?

If you're a business owner in California, the prospect of contract disputes can be daunting. Binding agreements are an essential part of doing business no matter the type of goods or services you provide, and avoiding disputes can save both time and money (while also ensuring your business is able to thrive). Inc.com offers the following advice in this case, which will ensure any agreements you enter into are valid and legally binding.

Litigation over deceptive trade practices

Litigation affecting businesses arises for many reasons, but some cases can be particularly complex to work through, such as those which involve deceptive trade practices. If you are a business owner and your company has been accused of deceptive trade practices, you may have no idea where to turn. However, there is much at stake and the outcome of the case could have a major impact on your California business' future. From issues related to advertising to allegations that second-hand products were being sold as if they were new, there are many reasons why these accusations surface and it is essential to be prepared.

Suggestions for how you can resolve business disputes

There is little else as unsettling as catching wind of a dispute in your organization. Often, you are immediately met with conflicting stories and are left to your own resources to sort through what you have heard and understand what is going on. In many cases, finding a solution that benefits both sides require compromise and time to articulate. At Wang Intellectual Property, we have helped many businesses in California to overcome organizational disputes. 

Breaches of Contract

Centuries ago, when literacy was still a fledgling privilege, parties in business often verbalized their contracts. Their word was as good as gold, as some might say. In a modern world, the most successful California executives will say, "Get it in writing." Every business owner knows a contract has to be in writing, and all involved parties have to sign it.
