Movie star caught up in contract dispute over jewelry

Contract disputes can be an ongoing fact of life for many Texas businesses, but they can also embroil major celebrities. Movie star Sarah Jessica Parker is engaged in an ongoing legal dispute with a jewelry company that is accusing her of breaking an agreement to endorse the company's products. Kate Florence Design has also accused the actress of refusing to return jewelry provided under the contract.

Trade secret protection is important for any size business

Almost any size enterprise engaged in any type of business has what may qualify as trade secrets that are worthy of protection. A trade secret may be as mundane as a customer list or a certain in-house manufacturing process, but it is something that has value to that specific business. Texas has adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act guidelines to protect this form of intellectual property.

Texas has strong markets for commercial real estate investment

Investors at all levels have opportunities to enter the commercial real estate market. According to the National Association of Realtors, 2018 has been a strong year for growth, especially in Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth. Growing employment has contributed to demand for commercial properties in multiple sectors. The long-term leases that are typical among commercial tenants help to protect owners from low occupancy rates and establish consistent cash flow.

The different ways to invest in real estate

Investing in Texas commercial real estate could offer unique opportunities for a portfolio. However, there are many different ways to invest. For instance, an individual could choose to be a private money lender. This involves giving money to developers and others who wish to make use of land or existing commercial buildings. It is also possible to purchase a building or a portion of a building. This enables an investor to find tenants and take other steps to maximize return on investment.
