  • With 3,500 undergraduate students, 500 graduate students, and 100 faculty and staff, the Lee Business School is one of the largest schools at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The Lee Business School has done wonders for graduate and undergraduate students who are studying everything from business law to management information systems. Recently, thanks to a $3 million pledge and $1 million donation, UNLV's Lee Business School hopes to make even more of an impact in the business world.

    "The mission of Lee Business School is to cultivate leaders who transform business," said Brent Hathaway, dean of Lee Business School. "These gifts will greatly expand the capacity of the current center and further the vision of the school, benefiting students and the community for decades to come."

    Dennis Troesh pledged $3 million to expand the Center for Entrepreneurship (which will subsequently be renamed the Troesh Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation). Additionally, the Charles Koch Foundation donated another $1 million to the school.

    The Troesh Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will partner UNLV students with renowned leaders and entrepreneurs in the business community. These industry leaders will help students learn how to properly negotiate, make strategic investments, learn the ins and outs of business law, how to read a business contract, how to close sales deals, and so much more.

    "Business must innovate to stay competitive, and the Center for Entrepreneurship offers the industry vital research and business development services to stay ahead of trends," said Troesh.

    The money from both the pledge and the donations will be dispersed over a five-year period beginning July 1.

    There are hundreds of industries that these future entrepreneurs can break into and they aren't all involving white-collar tasks. The United States is actually the second largest construction markets in the entire world, with a market share of 10% and young entrepreneurs will need to break into this industry to continue to be a global powerhouse.

    Our law firm is grateful for those who support UNLV, as its founder is a 1994 graduate from the UNLV college of Civil and Environmental Engineering.  If you want to learn more about the various types of business contracts, as well as the ins and outs of properly forming a Nevada business so it will protect your personal assets, or if you just need to speak with an experienced business lawyer, contact the Law Office of Tony M. May P.C., today.

  • Starting your own business and then running that company can be one of the most rewarding, but difficult tasks of your entire life. There are so many factors to consider! Not only that, but you'll need to spend time, money, and energy working towards keeping your business afloat. Though forming a company may initially lead to more stress, eventually you'll be on the fast track to success.

    Because forming a company brings so much stress, it's important to find the best areas to actually start your business. Forming a company in Nevada, for example, is a much better decision that beginning a company in other states. Here are a few reasons why it's better to form a company in Nevada.

    No state income tax

    Having to report and pay an income tax for a new company can make it more difficult to get off the ground. Just when you gain some momentum, as a business, and start seeing some actual revenue, you'll have to fork over a percentage to the state where you are incorporated, if that state requires companies to pay an income tax. In Nevada, however, new business owners don't have to worry about that. Including Nevada, there are seven U.S. states that currently don't have an income tax. The other six states are Florida, Alaska, South Dakota, Wyoming, Texas, and Washington.

    Single member Limited Liability Companies are protected

    Business entities that fall within the classification of “single member limited liability company” are extremely popular, but aren't protected in every single state the same as multi-member liability companies. Nevada, however, protects new company owners who create a single member LLC. IN fact, in Nevada, single business owners are treated the same as multiple member LLCs.

    Quality commercial lawyers available

    No matter what state your business is incorporated in, business contract disputes and other commercial problems arise. Whether you're running a business in its infancy or have been at the helm for decades, it's important that you have a trusted business/commercial lawyer to contact in the event of any legal issues or disputes. For example, if a business owner wants to pursue a claim for breach of contract, the individual must prove four things: (1) a valid contract was formed, (2) the party suing performed its required part of the contract, (3) the actual breach of the contract, and (4) the amount of damages, if any, that were the result of the breach. An experienced business/contract attorney can help the business owner not only know if a breach occurred, but if a valid contract was formed. This way, the business owner will know if he/she has a claim before deciding to initiate a lawsuit to recoup his/her damages.
    If you want to learn more about business law or speak with a trusted business/contract lawyer about forming a company or about a dispute you may have in Nevada, please feel free to contact the Law Office of Tony M. May, P.C. today.

  • Commercial business law can be extremely complicated for even the savviest businessperson. Commercial law, legal contracts, and business litigation… it can all feel quite overwhelming.

    Luckily, there are quality business attorneys who are available to help you maneuver through the various commercial business laws. Whether you’re involved in a legal conflict or not, it’s important that your company is equipped with the necessary documentation and legally enforceable contracts. Without having your contracts in order, your business could be at risk for serious financial penalties or lawsuits.

    Here are a few essential documents you should have to avoid commercial business law disputes.

    A list of your company’s bylaws

    Although you don’t need to keep your company’s bylaws filed with your state or federal government, it’s best to keep a written record of them at your main office and at your attorney’s office.  Without well written and understood bylaws, simple ambiguous situations could lead to legal issues or major disputes between the owners of the company. With a thorough review of your company’s Bylaws, however, your company attorney can guide you through its governing rules in order to avoid disputes due to misunderstandings.

    Workers’ compensation contracts

    While it’s not enforced across the country, the majority of states require companies to have some form of workers’ compensation available. Roughly 74% of states currently require all businesses to provide workers’ comp. You should make sure that you are offering legitimate workers’ comp and have the correct documentation.  Otherwise, your company can be subject to liability towards both the state and your employees.

    Privacy policy outlined on the Internet

    This isn’t necessarily required by law either, but it’s still a best practice for business owners to have policies for their employees in relation to their use of the internet, while at work.  You should include your terms of use in all employee manuals in order to limit your company’s liability towards third parties or your employees who are injured as a result of issues resulting from employee use of the company’s internet. This document, and others, can keep you out of legal and financial trouble should a problem arise.

    Employee agreements/company policies

    This business contract outlines the expectations of the company as a whole and each individual employee to prevent future issues. You don’t have to provide an employee agreement to every single member of your team you bring on, but having each employee sign that they have reviewed and agree to the terms can help to de-escalate various legal situations that could cause harm to the company.  Generally speaking, the better written the employee agreements/company policies, the more likely your employees will be able to use them and keep the Company from being sued by former employees.

    Non-disclosure agreements

    No matter what industry you’re in, your company has information that should remain private. Big ideas, pricing and financial documents, employee records, and much more should always remain with the company and non-disclosure agreements can prevent this information from getting out. This document, if done properly, can create a legally binding confidential relationship between every individual and the company he/she works at.

    If you’re ready to take your business to the next level, make sure you have all of these documents in place. Not sure where to begin? If you want to speak with an experienced business attorney, contact Tony M. May P.C. today.

TESTIMONIALS

  • The man who won my case.

    “I had to sue a rouge partner, and consulted with 2 attorney's who advised me my case would be very hard to win, and to better leave things as they were. I got very lucky when a friend of mine recommended Tony May to me. After a 2 hour consultation, he decided my case was worth pursuing. He built such a good case for me, that when the judge ordered both parties to meet and try to resolve the issues at hand, before having to go to trial, my partners attorney was at a loss. We settled, and I got everything I was contesting and more. My partners attorney later admitted to me that sometimes your own clients are your worst enemies. Thank you Tony for a job well done!”

  • Exceptional service well adept and professional.

    “Mr. May and his staff did an exceptional job in handling my legal matter. I want to take this opportunity to personally thank them in making me a believer that there are still professionals who care. I highly recommend him and his staff .”

  • Instrumental in helping our company deal with what appeared to be a ‘no win’ situation

    “Tony and his firm was instrumental in helping our company deal with what appeared to be a ‘no win’ situation. His experience and knowledge of the situation, contract law, and reputation was key to helping us with our dilemma. More importantly Tony read our situation and knew exactly how to proceed. Things worked out as successfully as possible. Without Tony that would not have been possible. We nearly chose another firm. Which would have been disastrous. I am writing this review to help others make a choice that will truly assist them. Thank you.”
