company, we became a llc. I just found out that my partner contacted the company and notified them of our llc but we didn't resign the contract. My question is, can the pursue us as a partnership or will we be protected as a llc
Whoever told you that partners can "avoid contractual liability" merely by creating an LLC--composed of the same partners who signed the contract--was wrong. Your new LLC cannot protect you or your partner.

There has been a succession of different owners. I have copies of the lease agreements. Giving the required 30 days written notice, I plan to soon vacate the premises.

Why start possible trouble when you have NO concerns--and will not have any unless and until your landlord refuses to give your security deposit back. (Pet deposits are usually not refundable to anyone.) Wait.

You may have a breach of contract claim against the owner. I am assuming the title company did a search but don't know if they issued or were going to issue a title policy on the property. The title company should be able to provide a copy of the lien, or maybe you can look it up at the County...Read more »

The brick subcontractor was paid short about 7400 of 29,000. He contacted me 5 months after his work was completed. I have already paid the contractor in full and now the contractor won’t return my calls. The subcontractor filed a suit in small claims Parker county.
Although this sounds like a dispute between the primary contractor and his sub-contractor (the bricklayer), the result might become a big problem for you--if the bricklayer files a mechanic's lien against your property. Whether or not they can do that lawfully is beyond the scope of this...Read more »
She has already signed an NDA when she started at the company. She was fired for accidentally emailing herself a document that contained sensitive company information. They are requesting that she signs this new NDA, but are not offering any incentive to sign.
