What is a trademark?

From litigation over allegations of copyright infringement to registering a trademark, a number of legal issues may arise when it comes to intellectual property. However, it's important for business owners to have a clear understanding of the different terms and how they are defined according to the law. For example, some business owners may wonder what a trademark is and it is vital to find answers to these types of questions.

Estate issues and social media

In the information age, life has become more complicated in various ways, including the distribution of assets after someone passes away. With social media, people are able to find support and access an abundance of information, but this technology can also lead to problems. For example, someone may threaten a family member online because they are unhappy about how property was split up. Or, someone may reveal information related to an estate that could be used against them. Our law firm knows how important it can be to watch what you decide to share on social networking sites and other online platforms.

Does New York recognize holographic wills?

People have many different questions with regard to estate planning and it is paramount to find answers if you are uncertain about any aspect of the process. Whether you are not sure what to include in your trust or do not know if a certain type of will is even valid in New York, such as a holographic will, finding answers is essential. Unfortunately, some people push off estate planning issues, whether they are under high levels of stress or simply do not want to deal with it, which can have consequences later on.

Estate planning and the importance of communication

In order to handle estate planning issues appropriately, you may need to carefully review the unique details of your situation. Additionally, it is likely that communication will play a role in the way that your estate is set up and could also affect how your loved ones deal with the distributions of your assets following your death. Our firm knows that effective communication plays an incredibly important role in the estate planning process and we believe that, in certain cases, it is crucial for people to go over certain aspects of their estate plans with loved ones.

Estate planning and the holidays

Estate planning can be tricky for an assortment of reasons, some of which have been covered on this blog. Our law firm recognizes how hard it can be for people to figure out which type of plan is the most ideal for their unique circumstances and the hurdles they may face (deciding how to distribute assets to beneficiaries, choosing an executor, etc.). With the holiday season approaching, it is even more important for those who are working to set up an estate plan to go over their options carefully and, in some cases, be prepared for certain questions that could arise.
