Timur Akpinar's answer There are a number of different databases out there, some of which are free and some of which charge fees. This could be a narrowly tailored legal search. You could broaden it slightly and possibly retrieve additional search results by including issues of mistake, fraud, meeting of minds, mutual assent and other elements that could challenge the validity of consent.
Elizabeth Tarasi's answer Who is the current landlord? Please give me a call in my office. Your transaction seems a little more involved than can be done in a message forum. My office number is 412-391-7135

But it does not have to be that way. Issued patents are treated just like any other business asset. Your company can sell the patents along with all the other business assets such as inventory, production facilities, tooling, etc., or it can spin them off into another entity.
The question that needs to be answered is: how valuable are the patents to you, vs. how valuable are they to the buyer? If...
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer the job of the board of directors is to supervise management (the executive officers). Ordinarily, the board would be heavily involved with the discussions surrounding the merger. At the very least, they'd be part of the discussion of what the board of the merged company would look like, which executives would have what role, what their compensation would be, as well as the compensation for executives who will be departing, and the overall pricing / valuation of the merger.
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer this is too broad a question with not enough specifics. The legal, managerial, and tax implications of a limited parnership is quite different from that of a traditional corporation, and that's without even discussing some of the other possibilities, like a limited liability partnership, limited liability limited partnership, a limited liability corporation, an S Corporation election, and more.
Besides, you may have different interests than your investors/partners, and may want to...
Stefan Dunkelgrun's answer A letter of intent is proof that you are committed to the transaction. It means that you generally agree to the transaction, but still need to work out the details. You are not locked in, but at the same time you may be liable for damages if you back out without a good reason. You should consult with an attorney before signing a letter of intent.
Sarah Lynn Ruffi's answer In order to be able to give you an informed answer, I would need to see the lease. If your lease was assignable and if your lease included a 60 day termination provision for a month-to-month tenancy, then you are probably stuck with the 60 day notice period.
Jonathan R. Roth's answer First determine the reputation of the organization. Analyze what the costs are and what the training provides. Ask to talk to existing franchisees or simply go to a relatively close franchisee and speak to them. Check to see if they are registered in your state and if there are pending complaints against them.
There is a very good article written by Susan Adams on things to look at before you buy a franchise. I recommend you read it....
Jonathan R. Roth's answer More information is needed to answer your question. Most VC firms manage funds they create using investors money. In creating those funds they have to comply with SEC rules as well as state rules to the extent they apply. As to the use of the funds that is dictated by the terms of the fund and the agreement governing the investments and the payment of expenses. There are rules governing the fees one can take from investment funds.
If your company is a VC fund, then the limitations...
1. have someone independently value the stock being purchased without adjustment for minority ownership or lack of control (there are a variety of ways to deal with selection of who values the business);
2. look at any stockholder agreement that exists for how it determines value;
If they can't agree upon price of the stock, are they going to be able to work together? Are both sons going to work in the...
