If the seller will not return your money, look at your contract. Look to see if there is a remedy provision for what happens if one side breaches the agreement. It may include language on where a lawsuit can be brought and other terms. There may be a provision for attorney's fees if a party...Read more »

It is really difficult to answer with out reviewing the documents. A person is generally presumed to have read what they sign. In fact there is probably language that says you have read and understood. But that doesn't necessarily mean you have to sign new documents.
If your dates are accurate, if you wait 2 months you will have met the time requirement. This would be the safest route. There may be some issues as to the enforceability of the terms of your non-compete. But simply putting your business you will be doing in your wife's name is probably not...Read more »

Today, I have worked 4 hours... Read more »

We are a 100+ year old family-owned (closely held) C corporation capitalized @ 1000 shares of common stock. It is the unanimous wish of shareholders and Board alike to "re-designate" some 510 of the some 650 outstanding shares as "non-voting" stock. How should we proceed?
This is too complicated to answer in this type question and answer format. If it is possible ( and you can't take away or dilute other shareholders voting rights) the process would require a thorough review of the bylaws and charter. This is probably too complicated to attempt without an attorney.
