Planning ahead for a successful business merger

Many people in California and throughout the United States are foregoing college educations to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities. It's a rather controversial topic with advocates and naysayers on both sides. Both choices often lead to business ownership, and owning a business often leads to an eventual business merger. Thorough research and careful planning can set the stage for successful expansion.

Employees vs independent contractors: Avoiding a contract dispute

In most California businesses and others throughout the nation, there are typically three types of workers. Those carrying out various tasks and duties within a workplace are usually volunteers, employees or independent contractors. The problem is that sometimes a worker gets incorrectly categorized, which may lead to a contract dispute later down the line.

The secret to avoiding a contract dispute may be in the draft

There are many reasons that some California companies (especially those in the construction industry) go out of business. A causal factor that consistently ranks high on the list has to do with contracts. No business owner wants to become entangled in a lingering contract dispute. Drafting a solid contract in the first place is often key, not only to avoiding disagreement, but to keeping a business alive as well.

Dupont and Dow companies one step closer to business merger

Antitrust regulators often must give approval before two or more high profile companies in California or elsewhere can merge their assets. Business merger is a common means of expansion in both domestic and international realms. The process, however, is seldom simple, and those involved typically face several challenges and obstacles along the way before they're able to bring their plans to fruition. Dow Chemical Co and Dupont are currently navigating their way through the merger system.
