Contract disputes disrupt craft beer business

Entering contracts may be an essential part of doing business, but a breach of contract can destroy what had been a promising relationship between Missouri business owners. One contract dispute in the beer industry is currently drawing attention after craft brewery Monkey Paw was put back on the market in May. This comes less than one year after larger beer manufacturer Coronado had purchased a majority stake in the brewery, pledging to expand its offerings and distribution.

Investing in industrial real estate

Investment in industrial real estate, especially warehouses, is at its highest level in more than a decade. The sector is doing well in a world where consumers expect delivery of goods faster, which requires large facilities in dense urban environments. Since industrial properties in Missouri are usually less expensive than their residential counterparts, they can potentially provide investors with a greater return on investment.

Top dental suppliers in trouble with FTC

Each year, approximately 85 percent of the 10 billion dollars spent in Missouri and around the country on dental products and services is dominated by three massive companies. Recently, these same companies came under fire from the Federal Trade Commission for allegedly violating antitrust laws. The complaint states the three dental suppliers conspired to refuse discounts to large purchasing groups who sell products and services to smaller individual and group dental practices.

How to settle construction issues

A construction dispute can cost both a contractor and a client time and money. Contractors may also worry that handling a dispute improperly could result in a strained relationship with the client. To reduce the odds of a dispute occurring, it is important to make the contract between the parties as clear as possible. Furthermore, the contractor should create daily reports that address any challenges that were faced in finishing a project on time.

Ecommerce starting to push rent down for retail space

Online shopping has put convenience and huge selections at the fingertips of people in Missouri. Nationwide, competitive pressure from online retailers has forced many retail companies to go under, like the recent closures of Toys "R" Us stores. With increasing amounts of retail space on the market, rents have started to drop in some locations. Meanwhile, costs are rising for online retailers, which could create competitive opportunities for brick-and-mortar retailers.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
