Brand protection during mergers and acquisitions

Business owners in Connecticut should take care how they handle mergers and acquisitions as the two business moves can impact how their brand is perceived. Combining two businesses can be a complicated process, significantly impacting brands. However, brands can be protected if they are managed carefully and strategically.

Estate planning needs can change over time

The emotional impact of estate planning can be difficult for many people in Connecticut; because it can deal with sometimes-complex family relationships as well as the fraught topic of death, many people do not want to revisit will planning too quickly. This means that once complete, many wills, trusts and other important estate documents are often filed away for years on end without change or review because people know that they have taken action to protect their assets and their family. However, ongoing legal changes, as well as life developments, can make it a priority to review one's estate plan.

Planning to stay home as you age

There are countless benefits of staying in your own home as long as possible as you age. Certainly, you want to be in a comfortable and familiar place where you still have some control over your schedule, your meals, your belongings and other lifestyle decisions. Your home also has memories and those personal touches you may have worked for years to achieve.

Popular terms overwhelmingly registered as trademarks

Many Connecticut business owners and entrepreneurs may be considering filing for a trademark for their own products and services. However, they could run into more difficulty than expected, as a new study has found that 81 percent of the most common 1,000 words in the English language are registered as single-word trademarks. The study's authors warned of the potential of future problems with the creation of brand names.

Mistakes to avoid with revocable trusts

One of the tools Connecticut residents can use in their estate plans is a revocable trust. However, it is important that they make the most of the investment they pay in legal fees to ensure that they are using the trust to its full potential and that their beneficiaries are able to take part in its value.
