T-Mobile/Sprint merger moves forward after judge's approval

For many Colorado business owners, mergers and acquisitions can be an important way to expand their enterprise by bringing on former competitors. However, negotiating a successful one can be complex for companies of any size and in any industry. Especially for larger corporations, some mergers may even face official opposition. In New York, officials announced that they were joining Colorado in ending their legal battle to stop the combination of two major wireless companies after a judge approved the agreement. T-Mobile and Sprint, two of the nation's largest mobile phone service providers, are merging in a $40 billion deal.

Hard seltzer companies in fizzy trademark dispute

One of Colorado's best-known companies is locked in a trademark battle over the name of its hard seltzer product. Molson Coors is facing a trademark infringement lawsuit over the name of its newly announced Vizzy brand, which is scheduled to launch in the future. Future Proof Brands, which manufactures an alternate hard seltzer called Brizzy, said that the company should be barred from using the name due to a risk of consumer confusion in the marketplace. Brizzy was created in 2018 and launched in the market in September 2019, and its manufacturer expects to exceed $2 million in sales in its first year of availability.

One of the challenges that many older workers face is a specific type of discrimination.

Trademark owners in Colorado and around the country sometimes find themselves embroiled in legal battles with infringers that drag on for years, but few of them last as long as the dispute between Adidas and H&M.

Mistakes buyers make when acquiring a business

Individuals in Colorado or elsewhere who are buying a business for the first time may be vulnerable to making critical errors. For instance, they may neglect to do due diligence before agreeing to purchase a company. While a company may be doing well today, it is important to figure out why it is successful. Performing due diligence can also help a potential buyer determine if there are any issues that may impact a company's chances of future success.
