Hillsborough, NC asked in Business Formation, Contracts, Copyright and Patents (Intellectual Property) for North Carolina

Q: i am an app developer and need representation. I know that certain companies are interested in my apps.

I have had people who have stolen apps without permission, who have then sold my apps (properties) without my permission. I need a lawyer to represent me as retaliate as well as when I contact big name tech companies concerning offers. I need representation to help me draft contracts as well as help me make a legal agreement. I cannot rely on blind trust because my programmer has previously tried to steal my properties and has gone to such extremes as to physically harm me so that he could steal said apps. What can I do? Can you help me? I just want to go about this the right way. I also need to know if i need an LLC or business license in order to sell these apps in this state and if so, I need help with this process as well. I need help as soon as possible as I am done developing the apps. I have all of the licensing for my apps.

A: There are several attorneys listed on the Justia directory who would be able to help you. You should look for North Carolina attorneys with experience with copyright law, business transactions (licensing agreement and business entity formation), and civil litigation. You should contact 2-3 attorneys to find one with whom you get along and trust.
