Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer This can't be answered in this limited question-answer format. An attorney would need to closely review the corporations' by-laws to determine how to break a "deadlock." Since you are "equal stockholders" it appears that neither of you have the legal authority to oust or exclude the other. based on the limited facts given in your question, my first impression is that you will need a Judge ( a lawsuit) to resolve it.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Your question is not clear to me. TCA 62-20-101 et seq. provides for licensing of business that collect debts. Subsection e allows for someone to voluntarily make a payment or in the event of a final judgment pay the judgment. The person cannot set aside the payment simply because he debt collector was not licensed. If your question relates to the collection of Court Judgments, these can be enforced by the individual that obtained the judgment, by a lawyer or a debt collection service or...
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer If you have insurance, you should make them aware of claim. The insurer may provide you with a defense. Also a seller has a number of defenses to a products claim. Not sure why you cant get insurance. May need to ask another agent to help you. I am assuming this means after this claim was made, your insurer notified you it would not renew you.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer A collective mark is a type of trademark owned not by an individual or company but by a collective group- so that each member of the group can use the mark. For example the wool trade mark or cotton trademark.
Dilution in value .. equity dilution in value occurs whenever more stock is issued. An example you own 10 shares and your friend owns 10 shares of stock. The company then issues 20 more shares. You went from owning 50% of the company to 25%. Your interest has been diluted....
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer You will have to call the Sheriff's Department and ask to swear out a Warrant with a Detective. Let the Magistrate decide which Criminal Statute was violated. But since you actually paid no money, probably no charges will be issued. It is possible a Complaint to the Land Surveyor's Branch of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance should be filed. You should have never hire a Surveyor to determine Title Ownership of Real Property. If the Wills you have were not Probated,...
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Your question is unclear- there will be no "common law" on these issues. Any issues concerning a corporation's assumed name or reserved name are governed by the state statutes regarding corporations, and also perhaps the rules of the Secretary of States' office.
You can start to protect your intellectual property right away. The most important for you will likely be trademarking your product names, logos, etc. You can file for federal registrations before you ship your first bottle, or you can do it after you've been in business for years, or anywhere between there. There are, of course, business reasons why you'd want to do it earlier or later.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer I suspect not- changing the name will require filing documents to change the ownership of property, vehicles. business licenses, etc. Also, unless it is a sole proprietorship ( a single owner), changing the name will require filing documents with the Secretary of State ( for corporations and limited liability companies). In summary, those name change documents would establish that the former business that you want to sue is actually the same business as the new one , just under a different name.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer I'm guessing you left them there- the custormer is claiming that you didn't finish the job- and that if you want the tools you can either finish the work or otherwise resolve things. You could contact the police but I am doubtful the police would get involved. After all the customer didn't go get the tools - you left them. You likely would need to bring a lawsuit to get the tools back - so it may be better (less expensive) to try to resolve matters amicably. If you can't otherwise work -...
Benton R Patterson III's answer If that is all you want to accomplish, you do not need to convert the partnership to another entity. A partnership can obtain an EIN, allowing the partnership to obtain credit and file taxes under the partnership's EIN, rather than a partner's SSN. You can apply for an EIN on the IRS website.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Yes. A gas station in Tennessee can refuse to allow you to use the restroom-- Unless you have a medically certified condition that by state statute would require the gas station to let you use the restroom.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Your contractor will need to pull the permit for the project. You may be able to sell the solar equipment. But you cannot be the contractor unless you are a contractor. I would explain in your agreement with the homeowner that you are selling a solar equuipment and that a licensed contractor will install the equipment. So there is no claim that an unlicensed contractor did the work.
