If you have a promissory note that was due on 7/21/2020 and has not been paid, you have several options to consider. First, you could try reaching out to the debtor to remind them of the outstanding payment and discuss the situation. It's possible that there might have been a misunderstanding...View More
Using a name like "Skippy's Snack Shack" for a dog treat bakery could potentially lead to trademark infringement issues with Skippy Peanut Butter if they believe there is a likelihood of confusion between their established brand and your bakery's name. To avoid legal issues,...View More
If you are planning to use "Skippy's Snack Shack" as the name of a retail bakery shop, you would have a low risk with respect to the mark for Skippy peanut butter. However, if you used this name on the snacks themselves, you could potentially run into a problem. You should contact...View More
You cannot retroactively change the name of the organizer once the entity is filed with the secretary of state. However, keep in mind that "organizer" does not mean that person is actually an owner of the company. It is simply the person or entity that files the articles.
That is too much of an open-ended question for an online Q&A forum. You should consult with a local business attorney and have them draft a comprehensive operating agreement (if an LLC) or shareholders agreement (if a corporation).
Consult an experienced trademark attorney, to conduct a careful search to assure the marks are not confusingly similar to others in use, to advise how they should be used, and to prosecute the applications to register with the USPTO.
i want to know what disclaimers i need for if they leave after an edible and go wreck a car then try to blame me for it or things of that nature. any other answers would be greatly appreciated. i want to be 100% legal with everything and turn this into an experience
A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Your question covers lots of ground - type of business structure, insurance, etc. - and it might be difficult to obtain meaningful guidance in the brief format of a Q & A forum. One option is to think about a...View More
Will be investing into real estate next year with a friend. We both have our own separate LLCs that have been established over two years and have business credit. The problem is...the names of the companies aren't geared toward the business venture we are looking to do now (real estate). We... View More
The Domestic LLC will officially be registered with the GA Secretary of State as "XYZ Co. LLC". I'm just trying to find out if I'm required to file for a DBA/Trade Name to drop the LLC portion for any kind of advertising or just reference to the company in general.
I do a side business inventing and making products within a specific industry. My full time job wants me to sign an nda Claiming ownership of products and intellectual property made or invented during time of employment and “relating in any way to employers business”.

I opened a LLC in Georgia in 2014 with 2 members in the Articles of organization, me and my spouse. I also elected for an S-Corp status (2553 & 8832) the same year. Now I want to revoke the S-Corp election AND also convert the multi member LLC to a single member LLC (my spouse will no longer be... View More
No. There is no form to change to a single member LLC. You just transfer the membership interests to you from your spouse. And you do not need to record anything or file anything with the SOS unless you included ownership in the Articles of Organization.
I am wondering if buying and renting residential property in GA means the out of state LLC needs to register as a foreign LLC in GA. No other business will be conducted outside of renting to tenants in the state of GA.
Simply owning the property would not require foreign entity registration, but if the LLC rents out the property it would be deemed to be conducting business in Georgia and would be required to register with the Georgia Secretary of State.
First, if you have filed articles of organization it is an LLC and not a partnership. And only if the articles list the members (owners) of the company would you need to amend them. (Listing the members is not required and is uncommon.) If they do, you can find instructions on the Georgia...View More
Is there a sample document you can provide please? I have submitted the document with all those details, Article One, Two and Three, but my application got rejected. Is Articles Of Amendment must? how should it look like? Is attaching Operating Agreement enough?
Unless your current Articles of Organization list the members of the LLC you do not need to amend them. You just need to issue membership interests to the new members and have them sign a new operating agreement. However, the operating agreement should be drafted by an attorney since you will now...View More
