FAQs

What are some reasons I would want to hire a trust litigation attorney?

Someone created the trust without the legal authority to do so.

Working off this premise, a person could contest the validity of the entire document. Also, a person could have lacked the mental ability to create such a form. It takes a lot of evidence to win an argument based on the executor’s mental capacity in court.

Someone unduly coerced another into doing so.

A person might have influenced another to distribute assets in a manner that seems out of the ordinary. The lack of free will to create the document can invalidate the document and falls under possible elder abuse.

Violation of fiduciary obligations.

A fiduciary must execute governance and handle the trust’s assets according to directions laid out in the trust. Mishandling the affairs of the trust can open the trust to a legal challenge.

Forged documents.

Forging trust documents is illegal. Forged documents can lead to criminal charges.

What are Geographical Indicators?

As defined by the World Intellectual Property Organization, “A geographical indication (GI) is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin.” In order to function as a GI, a sign must identify a product as originating in a given place. In addition, the qualities, characteristics or reputation of the product should be essentially due to the place of origin. Since the qualities depend on the geographical place of production, there is a clear link between the product and its original place of production.
Geographical Indications can be protected in the United States by using trademarks and certification marks. As a trademark, the GI must meet the same criteria as any trademark. Under certification marks however, the owner of a certification mark does not use it and the mark does not indicate the origin of the goods, rather, a certification mark is used by the owner to certify that a product meets its standards.

What are Industrial Design Rights?

Another example is the case of Apple v. Samsung, where a design patent resulted in an astronomical damages award.

The bottom line is that IP protects a company’s very valuable intangible assets.

How to get paid in Nevada as a Construction Firm?

You, as a construction contractor, do not have the luxury of relying solely on the good intentions of your owner or general contractor to get paid in full. Things can and do go wrong during the course of a construction project. As a stark example, you may have experienced the year 2008, when developers in Nevada suddenly ran out of money and were unable to borrow additional money due to the financial markets freezing. Even during good economic times, payment issues will arise. For instance, what happens when a long-standing developer or contractor retires or passes away and the business passes to family members who are less skilled at managing the business? Unfortunately, there is also a cynical side to the business. When disputes arise regarding the cost or quality of the construction, previously friendly developers or general contractors may use the threat of non-payment to get negotiating leverage over your company.
