Helping family businesses achieve success

Even in an era of venture capital and publicly traded corporations, family businesses continue to be a mainstay in Colorado. This is especially true among smaller, local businesses, but it can extend even to large privately held corporations. In many cases, multiple members of a family are involved in supporting business growth and development over the years. In addition, family members may be trained and develop into roles in the company, and the business often passes from generation to generation. A successful family business can lift up the whole family, providing education funds and other key resources.

The importance of filing early with the US Copyright Office

Colorado residents interested in copyright law may like to learn more about how a recent US Supreme Court ruling impacts copyright registration. In March 2019, the United States Supreme Court ruled that copyright owners need to have their work registered with the United States Copyright Office before they are able to file litigation to enforce their rights. This decision by the United States Supreme Court gives added emphasis to the importance of early filing of copyright applications.

How to own and grow a thriving business

In Colorado, entrepreneurs often blunder when starting their first businesses. Every entrepreneur must go through a learning period. Although many mistakes do not merit grave concerns, some errors can cause a startup to disintegrate. A lack of funds can destroy a business before it even gets off the ground. Since starting a business means taking big risks involving the owner's reputation and future financial situation, it's important to have a fighting chance before beginning a business venture.

Mergers, acquisitions and uninsured liabilities

Before signing a deal for a merger or acquisition, a Colorado business owner should make sure to address any insurance-related issues with the target company. Unknowingly acquiring liabilities can negatively impact a company in many ways. It is important that a business owner consults with a transactional attorney about insurance issues that could arise.

Colorado debates about applicants with criminal backgrounds

Hiring someone with a criminal background is never an easy subject for employers. On one hand, many hiring managers want to keep their workers safe and believe hiring someone who has committed terrible deeds could put them in danger. On the other, this type of mentality has led to thousands of people in the U.S. unemployed and unable to get a proper second chance at life.

Private equity, venture capital and other high-profile investors

When entrepreneurs in Colorado look to find funding to grow a business, they may look toward two options -- venture capital and private equity. Many people with startup companies have great ideas or underlying technologies but need more funding in order to move into full production or elevate their work to the next level. As a result, they may approach various types of investors to play a role in moving the company forward.
