Before You Sign: What Choice Of Venue Means For Your Business

 

Lawsuits have become long and costly for many businesses.  The average civil case now takes about two years to go trial.  Pre-trial litigation issues can often extend the timeline for cases and make them more costly.  To this end, many businesses seek to preempt pre-trial litigation by entering into contracts that decide these issues in advance.  These preemptions however can take the form of standard language that only appears briefly at the end of contracts, causing companies to overlook them. 

What Is Trade Credit Insurance?

 

 

Credit can make or break a business.  And it cuts both ways.  While smaller businesses may mostly think of credit in terms of bank loans and mortgages, almost all businesses run with some degree of accounts receivable.  As far as business assets go, accounts receivable poses the greatest likelihood of loss, yet it can normally be 40% of a business’s assets- this leaves businesses exposed to a certain amount of risk.
