A corporation is a legal entity created through the laws of its state of incorporation. Individual states have the power to promulgate laws relating to the creation, organization and dissolution of corporations. Many states follow the Model Business Corporation Act. State corporation laws require articles of incorporation to document the corporation's creation and to provide provisions regarding the management of internal affairs. Most state corporation statutes also operate under the assumption that each corporation will adopt bylaws to define the rights and obligations of officers, persons and groups within its structure. States also have registration laws requiring corporations that incorporate in other states to request permission to do in-state business.
Breach of Contract
Breach of contract lawsuits and litigation are the recurring business disputes for a business or property owner. Before signing a contract, it is very important to understand and read each provision to make sure that one can do all the terms and conditions stated in the agreement. By doing this, one can know his legal rights and avoid possible lawsuit.
Breach of contract encompasses a variety of different scenarios: partnership disputes, breach of lease, sales transactions, promissory notes and collections, and any situation where two or more parties have reached an agreement, either orally or in writing. Whether the lawsuit arises from a partnership agreement, purchase and sale agreement, a lease or other business contract, a dispute will often spin around a written or oral agreement and the breach of that agreement by one of the parties to the agreement.
Estate planning is the process by which an individual or family arranges the transfer of assets in anticipation of death. An estate plan aims to preserve the maximum amount of wealth possible for the intended beneficiaries and flexibility for the individual prior to death. A major concern for drafters of estate plans is federal and state tax law.
An estate is the total property, real and personal, owned by an individual prior to distribution through a trust or will. Real property is real estate and personal property includes everything else, for example cars, household items, and bank accounts. Estate planning distributes the real and personal property to an individual's heirs.
