Governors Feud as Texas Lures Business Away from California

Recently, Texas Governor Rick Perry and California Governor Jerry Brown have been facing off over Perry’s efforts to lure California businesses to the Lone Star State. At the heart of the matter is the difference in civil justice systems. The workings of a state’s civil justice system directly affect businesses’ profit earning abilities. While Texas once had the highest lawsuit abuse rate in the nation, it has since solved the issue with significant legal reforms. This resulted in more jobs and more success for small businesses. However, unfortunately for California, the state’s civil justice system is lagging behind and has among the highest litigation rates in the county. Governor Brown may not like it, but California businesses are jumping ship to Texas.

Although Texas is a decidedly pro-business state, it’s still possible for your business to face legal troubles and litigation. This is especially true of conflicts among business partners. If you are in a dispute with your business partner, an experienced business attorney can help resolve the matter with an agreeable outcome.

During a business partner dispute, it can be tempting to skimp on attorney fees and handle the situation by yourself. However, this can be a costly mistake. In Texas, a legal dispute, such as breach of contract or an accusation of fraud, can freeze a business in its tracks. And every day a business isn’t up and running, there is a significant loss of profits. Thus, when a potential legal issue arises, an experienced attorney should be consulted to help mediate the issue or fight it in court. A knowledgeable business litigation lawyer can help in areas such as:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Allegations of fraud
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Employee matters, such as unfair termination
