Walmart sues Tesla over solar panel fires

Media outlets in Louisiana and around the country ran stories in 2018 about a series of rooftop fires at Walmart stores. The fires have been blamed on faulty solar panels supplied and installed by Tesla, and Walmart has responded by filing a breach of contract lawsuit against the Palo Alto-based electric car manufacturer. The lawsuit accuses Tesla of systemic negligence and failing to adhere to generally accepted industry safety standards.

Childless couples can still benefit from estate planning

Financial concerns, fertility issues or other problems may keep individuals in Louisiana or anywhere else from having children. However, it is still generally a good idea for all adults to have an estate plan even if they don't have kids. It is also important to have a plan that accounts for the possibility that both spouses could pass at nearly the same time. It is considered a best practice to have a will as part of an estate plan.

Best practices for those looking to buy or sell a company

In many cases, buying or selling a Louisiana business is an attempt for individuals to provide for themselves and their families. Those who are selling their companies are generally looking to lock in their profits and prepare for retirement or some other stage in their lives. Buyers are also looking to strengthen their long-term financial futures by purchasing an asset that can grow in value over a period of time.

Including wills and trusts in an estate plan

Wills and trusts are both important types of estate documents that can help people in Louisiana to plan for the future and provide for their loved ones after they pass away. A full estate plan will often include a will as well as one or several trusts. While one of these documents may be the major backbone of the estate, both can play a major role in properly ensuring that a person's assets are distributed correctly. There are different reasons why people may choose to focus primarily on a will or on a trust to pass on funds and property.
