I posted my business law terms I wrote as my study guide in college. I will try to keep these terms updated, but if you have any legal questions consult with a licensed attorney.

Act of State Doctrine
is called "common law" and it binds future decisions. In cases where the parties disagree on what the law is, an idealized common law court looks to past precedential decisions of relevant courts. If a similar dispute has been resolved in the past, the court is bound to follow the reasoning used in the prior decision (this principle is known as stare decisis ). If, however, the court finds that the current dispute is fundamentally distinct from all previous cases (called a " matter of first impression "), judges have the authority and duty to make law by creating precedent .

Law Department Management
June 2010 at 15, exposes the plight of King & Spalding in the aftermath of a seeming triumph in an international arbitration. The arbitration awarded the firm’s client (one Waguih Siag) $133 million. Siag settled for less, pocketed $80 million, and “decamped to the French Riviera without paying King & Spalding a dime.” It turns out that K&S’s contingency fee “called for Siag to give his lawyers an extra 1 percent of the award for every $50,000 in costs the firm advanced to him, beyond the first $500,000.” According to Siag, the law firm must have advanced more than $4.5 million in costs because its share of the recovery ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Lies catch up to Kemos
Alexander Kemos' credentials -- a natural listener with a knack for grasping cultures and impressive academic and business experience -- were perfect to guide a globalizing Texas A&M focused on becoming better, those who know him said.

Kemos' meteoric rise in academia crashed recently. He resigned June 18 amid revelations of false claims of being an ex-Navy SEAL and having a master's degree and doctorate. But friends and former ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
