Don't Take the Wrong Way Out

October 22, 2012

On Oct. 14, 2012, an article by Burr & Forman attorneys Victor Hayslip and Ben Coulter was published in Investment News. Titled, "Don't Take the Wrong Way Out," the piece describes "war stories" on departing brokers who leave their companies without regard for key issues, sometimes finding themselves in the middle of costly litigation, regulatory inquire and even embarrassment. Hayslip and Coulter address the repercussions for these brokers as well as how investment firms and their brokers alike can avoid costly legal issues when the broker leaves to join another firm.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “They have a wonderful real estate practice. I think they are as good as anyone in the South. They are technically excellent at what they do. The deals get done with these guys. They have a well-rounded group. Anybody we have ever referred to them has been very happy and satisfied.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “Michael did work for us while I was CEO at Guided Therapeutics and after spending literally millions on patent work, I have to say that Michael is one of the best IP attorneys that I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him. Almost any attorney can get a patent issued, however the real trick is to get a patent issued that has real value and can stand against litigation. Michael is also especially knowledgeable in foreign IP rights and is very cost effective.”

    -Mark Samuels, CEO, Guided Therapeutics, medical device manufacturer
