As if running a company isn’t complicated enough, laws governing business practices are in constant flux. Knowing whom to call for legal help is a key step toward managing complex business problems. That’s where Business North Carolina’s annual Law Journal comes in. Lawyers from top practices across the state have outlined some of businesses’ most common legal issues, including 401(k) strategies, dealing with eminent domain, mediating civil conflict and protecting a business during a divorce. One article describes the state’s business court, which has expanded the types of cases it considers, and another explains the importance of registering trademarks.
