        By Charley Moore

         Two key legal decisions, one by the U.S. Supreme Court and one by the lesser known California Labor Commission, reinforce the challenge courts face in keeping pace with the technology-driven shift to an independent workforce.

        Put this on your bucket list: Make a will

        By Jeff Reeves

         For Americans busy trying to pay the bills and shuttle the kids to soccer, the last thing on their minds is their mortality. According to a 2015 Rocket Lawyer estate-planning survey by Harris Poll, 64% of Americans don't have a will. Of those without a plan, about 27% said there isn't an urgent need for them to make one—and 15% said they don't need one at all.

        Best Advice: Find the Pony in the Pitch

        By Charley Moore

         Early in my career, as a summer associate (intern) at Venture Law Group (VLG), a Silicon Valley start up law firm, I was fortunate to have a great mentor.

        While I was still not even out of law school, VLG founder Craig Johnson let me tag along with him to board meetings and client pitches. I had little perspective at the time, being so inexperienced, but, a few of these tiny companies became enormous businesses, while many more of them eventually failed. Regardless of their ultimate economic value, however, almost all of these startups helped to expand progress and knowledge in their fields, from Internet to medical devices to optical networking.

        By Charley Moore

         With most major companies headquartered in urban hubs such as San Francisco, New York, Boston and Chicago, Main Street is not usually the first place that comes to mind when discussing entrepreneurship.

        By Lisa Honey

         As 2014 rolls in, many of us are thinking about how we can improve ourselves (and work off too much holiday feasting).

        It's also a great time for small business owners to self-reflect on the previous year's missteps and to course-correct for a smoother, more prosperous year. While shoring up your company's legal preparedness may not be the most exciting New Year's resolution, it can be one of the most critical.

        Should Mark Zuckerberg Think Twice About Establishing A Dynasty?

        By Charley Moore

         Remember the movie Gladiator? Commodus, the bad son, murdered his aging father, Emperor Marcus Aurelius, preventing him from passing the empire down to his adopted good son, Maximus. Thus, instead of carrying on a centuries old tradition of merit-based succession, power passed to an unworthy blood relative and corruption followed.

        What does this have to do with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg? Well, according to the $5 billion IPO filing, legal documents give him absolute control over the post-IPO company, even beyond the grave, just like a Roman emperor. That kind of power can have unintended consequences.
