GE faces allegations of fraud over oil merger

We've spent some time on this blog discussing the benefits of mergers and acquisitions. These processes can help companies expand their operations, reduce their costs, and penetrate new markets. As helpful as mergers and acquisitions can be, though, they must be carried out carefully. Those agreements that are inadequate or lack transparency can result in business litigation, as evidenced by one recently filed lawsuit.

Louisiana newspapers swept up in recent merger

It wasn't that long ago that newspapers were the number one source of current events on the local, national, and international level.

Some common defenses to breach of contract claims

Many of our blog posts have focused on breach of contract issues through the lens of those who feel like they've been wronged by another party to the agreement. While these considerations are certainly important, so, too, is understanding how to defend against allegations of breach.

Should your Baton Rouge business consider a merger?

There are a number of ways that a business can grow. One way is to engage in more aggressive and targeted marketing campaigns. Another way is to increase spending in development of new products and services. Expanding operations to other locations and increasing one's online presence can help spur growth, too.
