As a real property owner, you need to actively protect your real property and ensure that no one infringes on the rights established by your real property ownership. Two of the most common issues that property owners face is Encroachment and Nuisance. The term encroachment refers to a situation in real estate where a property owner violates the property rights of his neighbor by building on or extending a structure to the neighbor's land or property intentionally or otherwise. This can quite often happen mistakenly because of unclear property boundaries, but it is important to address because it could significantly affect the value of your property. A private nuisance occurs when the plaintiff’s use and enjoyment of his or her
Transactional lawyers counsel individuals and businesses on the legal issues generated by their business dealings or personal activities (i.e. contract drafting and review). Civil litigation attorneys, also known as litigators or trial lawyers, represent plaintiffs and defendants in civil lawsuits. Trial lawyers manage all phases of litigation from the initial investigation, court filings, and discovery through the pre-trial, trial, settlement, and appeal processes.

The initial stages of a California business are some of the most exciting, but they can also be some of the most complex and confusing. The decisions made during the business formation process will lay the groundwork for the future direction of the company, and it's important for an owner to choose wisely every step of the way. One of the smartest things an entrepreneur can do is to realize that he or she does not have to be an expert in everything in order to succeed. This is why it can be important to choose the right kind of help in the beginning. From choosing
On behalf of Thaler Law posted in business formation on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Starting a business involves much more than just deciding on a good business idea and creating a Facebook page. The business formation stage involves much planning, financial preparation and legal steps that will impact a young California business for years to come. When a company is not able to secure the capital needed, there are choices that an owner can make that can prove beneficial for years to come. Starting a company without much cash to work with is exceptionally difficult. One way that an owner can make this process easier is to plan operations in a way that allows for overhead costs to remain low.

There are important decisions to make during this process that will impact the operations of a business for years to come. There are a few significant things that an owner would be wise to consider during the business formation stage that will help him or her avoid problems and lay the foundation for a strong future.

It's impossible to predict the future, but there are specific things that business owners can do that will protect their long-term interests. One of these things includes implementing certain plans and procedures during the business formation process that will go into effect in the event of their sudden death. California businesses can suffer greatly if their leadership passes away, and there are certain things an owner can do to ensure continued operations. An example of this happened recently to a small business in another state. The owner unexpectedly passed, and his family was left scrambling, trying to decide what to do with the company. One member
On behalf of Thaler Law on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. In a construction deal, there are often several different parties involved. From designers to owners and contractors to sub-contractors, there are plenty of cooks in the kitchen. Because of this, establishing liability for different parts of the project is a crucial part of a well-conceived contract. As a contractor, you should know what risks you should and shouldn’t be responsible for. This awareness and attention to detail can help you avoid disputes in the future. Allocating risk A contract for a potential project should properly assign risk to each party involved. The best way to do this is to allocate each risk to the party that will best be able
On behalf of Thaler Law posted in business formation on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. Starting a business can be an exciting step for California entrepreneurs, but it is not always the optimal choice for those looking to own their own business. In some cases, it is smarter to purchase an existing business than to navigate the business formation process. There are many benefits to taking this route, but a potential business owner will want to think carefully about the long-term implications of any choice regarding his or her business. One of the benefits of buying a business instead of starting one is that the buyer will obtain a proven business plan and be able to earn a profit faster. When
