Every business owner and executive has the duty to protect their company from legal risks and threats. Marjorie Jobe covers the key tools and strategies for fulfilling that duty. I highly recommend this book for all entrepreneurs.
El Paso, TX (PRWEB) March 9, 2009
Frustrated by the injustices she has seen in 21 years as a business attorney, Marjorie Jobe's new book discloses horrifying accounts of business owners who have been side-swiped by unexpected legal disasters and discusses the lessons to be learned. The Business Law Battle Plan for Entrepreneurs: Protect Your Company from Lawyers, Lawsuits, and Legal Disasters is far from another boring legal guide. Jobe writes about real-world cases and the insider secrets that no other book dares to cover. More importantly, she provides the solutions and protections that every business can use immediately.
Readers will be horrified to learn how a pirated trademark cost one vulnerable business millions to repair, the truth about how Martha Stewart was unjustly prosecuted based on loopholes in the legal system, and the frightening power that the Federal government has over your business and freedom. Other true stories of businesses victimized by today's legal abuses highlight the core message of acting now to insulate against the risks.
Readers will also learn essential legal protection strategies including how to:
- Prevent employee lawsuits
- Protect your rights if you are ever targeted for a Federal investigation
- Limit cyberspace liability
- Safeguard your assets with marital property agreements
- Control your own lawyer
- Develop effective business contracts
- Hire and manage the right lawyer
- Decide when to sue and when to walk away
- And so much more
"Lawsuits can destroy a business, even if you win. Most people don't realize how quickly the costs add up when you go to court. Too often lawyers who represent plaintiffs or larger companies take advantage of smaller operators because they know that the cost of litigation can actually drive you out of business," says Jobe.
Jobe also says that business owners who have never been touched or scarred by the criminal legal system are far more vulnerable than they realize. "Employee lawsuits are the ones we hear about most, but our own Federal government is one of the biggest threats out there. They have their own set of rules and it is imperative that business owners know their rights before they are wrongly accused."
Jobe's mission is to empower business owners to build their own legal battle plan before disaster, civilly or criminally, strikes. She shares additional tips in her Business Law Protection Strategies blog.
