Litigation of intellectual property and trade secrets increases

As information has become easier to share in the digital age, protecting trade secrets through litigation has become a more popular tool for a variety of companies. Due to the passage of the Defend Trade Secrets Act, or DTSA, many of these cases have gone from Texas to federal jurisdiction, making the stakes even higher. DTSA disputes can involve everything from patent violations to misappropriation of trade secrets. More than a thousand cases have been filed since the law passed in 2016.

What business owners should know about reverse mergers

Texas companies may be able to use a reverse merger to transition from a private company to a public one. This is done by trading its shares with those of a public shell company. A shell company can be registered with the SEC prior to the reverse merger taking place. One of the benefits of this strategy is that a company doesn't have to raise capital to go public.
