Part owner of 1 clinic partner got mad at me and started operating new place under same name but II after it. Am I entitled to same payout as with 1st clinic?

Reece B. Morrel Jr answered on Jan 8, 2019

Quite frankly, I think the "payout" is the least of your concerns right now.

Obviously, the place to start is with whatever contract, operating agreement (LLC), partnership agreement or shareholder agreement (corporation) you may have. These documents frequently make reference to a...

Welcome to the murky waters of employee vs. independent contractor.

Part of the problem is that you have several agencies - both federal and state - with overlapping jurisdiction.

In Oklahoma, you have the IRS, the OTC and the OESC just to name a few.

Q: I currently have a business in the residential construction industry. How can I use it to run a commercial company?

My residential business has the word "homes" in it but I would like to start running commercial projects that excludes the word "homes". How can I do so without getting a new LLC, insurances, etc.?

Reece B. Morrel Jr answered on Jul 13, 2018

You need to surf over to the Oklahoma Secretary of State website, and look for the Trade Name Report.

The filing of this document allows a business entity to use a name other than its...

Q: My wife is a business owner, does she have to have a permit to carry a firearm while in her business?

Reece B. Morrel Jr answered on Jul 5, 2018

Unfortunately, you did not provide enough facts to enable us to answer the question.

That decision is left to the owner of the property.

If she leases the property, then I would recommend that a review of the lease is in order.

Q: What if something happens if you offer a general warranty deed and later dissolve your llc in oklahoma?

What is the level of responsibility that a seller has if he dissolves an llc after selling property with a general warranty deed in Oklahoma in terms of liens or title disputes?

Benton R Patterson III answered on Mar 16, 2018

I would speak with your title insurance company about this. In most cases, it is the title insurance company that ends up handling problems with deed warranties rather than the seller individually.

Q: If a person says he going to put you into business and does not. Is this a crime? We are out no money.

The person said he was putting us into business with him and come to find out. It was all a lie.

We did not lose any money nor did he ask for any.

Is this a crime in Oklahoma and punishable by imprisonment.

Being a liar and con artist

Keegan Kelley Harroz answered on May 10, 2017

If you did not have a contract and you have no losses this simply sounds like a deal that just didn't work out. There was nothing illegal based upon the facts that you presented in your question.
