Trade secret misappropriation under Nevada law

At the Aldrich Law Firm, we understand how important intellectual property is to Las Vegas businesses. We know that some situations require quick and extreme actions to prevent unlawful information disclosures. This is especially true with trade secrets, which lose their protections once they are publicly exposed. In many cases, litigation is required to keep such confidential information from being revealed.

What are APGAR scores?

The birth of a new baby is one of the most exciting events in the lives of Nevada parents. These moments can quickly turn tragic, however, if a newborn’s APGAR test reveals that he or she is suffering from health problems. This is especially heartbreaking when the infant’s injuries were preventable because they were caused by a defective product, the trauma of a car accident or physician error.

An overview of shareholder derivative lawsuits

Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute explains that when a corporation has a valid legal complaint that it refuses to exercise, shareholders may pursue litigation on the corporation’s behalf. This is known as a shareholder derivative lawsuit.

Determining whether evidence is relevant

In many Nevada personal injury cases, the rules of evidence can have a substantial impact on a court’s final decision. The relevancy of evidence is an issue that is commonly debated in court, and both the Federal Rules of Evidence and Nevada state statutes address this topic specifically.  

What are some of the tax considerations for new businesses?

When starting a new business in Nevada, there are a number of issues that must be taken into account. Some of the most important of these are tax considerations, as these can have a substantial impact on the profitability of a business.

The general requirements of a binding noncompete agreement

Nevada entrepreneurs often include noncompete agreements in their hiring processes as a way of preventing former employees from divulging confidential company information. On occasion, these contracts become the basis of contract disputes between employers and employees. At the Aldrich Law Firm, we understand that business owners want to resolve such issues as quickly as possible. One of the best ways of doing this is by ensuring that the initial agreement is legally sound and enforceable.

Nevada Highway Patrol seeks public’s help in hit-and-run case

Hit-and-run accidents can leave serious personal injury, property damage and emotional turmoil in their wakes. Because of this, Nevada law enforcement officials work hard to identify and locate the drivers responsible for these collisions. Often, authorities will ask for the public’s assistance in these efforts.

Understanding diversity jurisdiction

According to the Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute, a civil case can be tried in federal court if that court has diversity jurisdiction—that is, the litigation involves citizens from different states and the amount of money at issue is at least $75,000. When a Nevada civil lawsuit is considered by a federal court sitting in diversity, one of the major issues that must be determined is whether state or federal laws will be applied.
