A company generally cannot compel an employee to agree to a non-compete, but they have a wide variety of alternatives for inducing employees to do so. Most obviously, they may threaten to fire employees who refuse, whether immediately or at the end of their current term, as another answer observes. Indeed, if Big Company makes an NC a condition of ...

I assume you are working in the US outside Montana (corporate headquarters is not so important). It depends on how long they are presently required to keep you on. If you have an at-will contract (most likely), they can present you with a "sign or be terminated" ultimatum. In case you have a term employment contract, you can be forced to sign at the end of ...

You can have as many people with the same job title as you wish. You can have more than one CEO as well, although that would be weird and confusing. Nothing prohibits this and CTO isn't even a traditional and core executive title anyway. This will be confusing to everyone involved, as grammatically and in the common English language usage of the word, a ...

A corporation that is incorporated in Delaware is a foreign corporation in Maryland and not Delaware. Since it sounds from the question that this corporation regularly conducts business in Maryland ("work day-to-day" and "official HQ" in Maryland), it almost certainly is required to register for foreign qualification in Maryland. In Maryland, "a foreign ...

Can they? Well, they'd sure like it if you signed. I'll guarantee you that their agreement is entirely to their benefit, and not to yours. This happened to me once, back in the halcyon days of the 1990's. The company I worked for (a small-to-middling size contracting firm in the wilds of northern Ohio) was being sold to a large-ish national contracting firm ...

A week is 7 days, so 2 weeks is 14 days. There is no general rule that weekends and holidays do not count as days, and "business day" is only a loosely-defined popular term (e.g. is a business is closed on Monday, that would not be a business day for that business). There is no significance difference between the NYT and the Post from the perspective of ...

The FAA regulates amateur model rocketry under 14 CFR 101, Subpart C. For a Class 1 model rocket: (a) Class 1 - Model Rocket means an amateur rocket that: (1) Uses no more than 125 grams (4.4 ounces) of propellant; (2) Uses a slow-burning propellant; (3) Is made of paper, wood, or breakable plastic; (4) Contains no substantial metal parts; and (5) Weighs no ...

First of all, if your Delaware LLC earns money, you will pay tax in America on that money. America still taxes "foreigners" on American income, just not on"global" income. That is, unless the U.S. has a tax reciprocity treaty with your home country, Malaysia. I don't know about Malaysian law, but I am writing as an American about American law regarding the ...

Washington State You are half way there by using a commercial registered office in Washington State, which is common place and meets the primary requirement of providing a physical address at which legal process such as a summons commencing a lawsuit or a legally required notice can be hand delivered. While Washington State does not allow for a mere private ...

Can people use an LLC in Delaware to legally avoid tax in his home country? Probably not. The home country would at least tax the income from owning the Delaware LLC as investment income. In any event, the cost of that avoidance will be paying corporate income tax in the US. Delaware LLC, for tax purpose, is a tax "flow" entity. This is incorrect. ...

No. Tax is paid on profits, not on investments / venture funds.

Shareholders rights are eliminated in their entirety in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy unless all claims of the bankrupt company are paid in full under the bankruptcy plan adopted, in which case the shareholders simply keep their shares when the company emerges debt free from bankruptcy (this almost never happens). The amount that shareholders receive is based ...

In most states there is a set of official criteria for a newspaper to be eligible for placement of legal advertisements. There is usually a minimum frequency of issue, and a minimum circulation. Or there may be a list of officially acceptable papers, revised from time to time. Any paper meeting those official criteria is probably OK. In a contract, there is ...

The question does not provide all of the necessary information. The sale of securities not registered with the SEC that are issued by a foreign company to a non-accredited investor in the U.S. are a violation of the Securities Act of 1933 which governs public offerings of securities under U.S. law. There are exceptions to this rule, that don't obviously ...

If I live/work in California can I create an LLC in Delaware (or possibly Nevada)? Yes. I've read that it's much cheaper and overall a better idea to have an LLC in Delawar[e]. It is definitely not cheaper, indeed, it is substantially more expensive, not just to form an entity, but to maintain one year to year in annual fees from the state and from ...

If your company does not have or does not plan to have a physical location in Delaware, you are required to use a Delaware Registered Agent for your LLC. A "Registered Agent" is a business in Delaware that you contract with which provides a physical address and contact information for your LLC in Delaware while you are out of state. Delaware General ...

Your best bet would be to check with a local attorney familiar with the local court's rules and the customs of the jurisdiction. But if you have the person's physical address, why not just use it and send it registered mail? Sort of takes the entire uncertainty part out of the ordeal. I don't know if notice requirements will be more or less stringent in your ...

The "internet" is not a place. Doing business "online" is subject to the laws of wherever the transaction is deemed to have taken place, e.g., where the customer is, where the vendor's offices are, where the servers are located, where the owner is incorporated, etc. The fact that an "online" business is "not in any particular state" may simply meaning it is "...

You should check with a local attorney to get the most correct answer as these things can vary. Delaware and North Carolina, at least assuming the business is run from North Carolina. Obviously, it is not necessary to buy a business license in every state one does business in, so the statement that sales are not in any particular state is irrelevant. ...

If your company is registered as a United States corp, you must comply with U.S Laws. It would probably behoove you to register the company outside of U.S. jurisdiction.. Preferably in a country where the business of your company are legal.

I'm a bit late, but it looks like we've got the case in the RECAP Archive, here: https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/4221177/british-telecommunications-plc-v-valve-corporation/ As @ohwileke says, this is a federal case, so it's going to be in PACER. We maintain the RECAP Archive that has a mirror of a lot of what's in PACER, especially things that are in ...

This is a federal court case, not one in the Delaware courts. You could find the case by setting up an account with the PACER system and searching using the parties or the case number and the court was the action was pending. PACER is a publicly available database of all federal court documents.
