From Dueling To Mediation And Arbitration


There was a time, not so long ago, when disagreements between gentlemen were more likely to be decided by a duel than a court of law. Although the most famous duel is probably Hamilton’s fatal showdown with Vice President Burr in Weehawken, New Jersey, this alternative means of dispute resolution was particularly popular in the Carolinas. Today, dueling is illegal (although Canada is working on bringing it back), but other alternatives to lawsuits remain quite popular.

Sound Legal Advice is a Key to Start-Up Success


Earlier this month the popular tech company Snap, owner of the hot app Snapchat, went public. It is just the latest example of a tech start-up that grew phenomenally by bucking the trends and cutting its own path, but that ultimately decided to take a more traditional route to fully capitalize on its success.

Suing To Set Up Shop


With all that has been going on in the world over the past month, it was easy to miss the fact that an interesting new lawsuit has been filed against the state of South Carolina. The fact that the state is getting sued is not news. That happens all the time. What is different about this case is that it is about whether or not an innovative new company is able to do business in South Carolina.
