The prospect of litigation can be a black cloud hovering over many companies in Louisiana, from large corporations to small businesses. Contract disputes are probably one of the most common legal issues that many companies will face at some point in time. And there is no doubt that these types of disputes can come in many forms, including breach of contract issues, problems with development contracts and even issues with employee contracts.

For other businesses, there may be other companies that are targeted for acquisition - and there are many different ways to accomplish this feat. One of which is known as a hostile acquisition.
