Legal Notice

Fair Competition Law is designed to provide information only – not advice – about important legal issues and developments.  It is in the nature of bulletins and consistent with our profession’s obligation to help inform not only our clients but also to cultivate knowledge of the law to the public in general.  It is not, however, comprehensive, nor does it necessarily take into account subsequent developments following a post.

The exchange of information does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship. Nor does the act of sending e-mail to an attorney at Beck Reed Riden LLP create an attorney-client relationship. If you are not currently a client of Beck Reed Riden, your e-mail will not be privileged and may be disclosed to other persons.

The content of this Web site may be considered advertising for legal services under the laws and rules of professional conduct of the jurisdictions in which we practice. Prior results described on this site do not guarantee a similar outcome.
