You may have a valid reason for sharing valuable company information. In fact, sometimes you have no choice but to do so. One of the best business decisions you can make is to protect confidential information through the use of a nondisclosure agreement, or NDA.

If you were shocked and dismayed when you discovered the contents of your recently deceased Florida parent's will, you may be questioning whether or not you should challenge it. The answer to that question depends on what grounds you think you have for the challenge.

Typically, these allegations happen when a testator leaves a disproportionate amount of assets to someone who is not a relative. Family members may claim that the testator would not have made such a provision unless the beneficiary exerted undue influence.
