It may be tempting to use a celebrity’s photograph to endorse your own business, but doing so without considering the celebrity’s “image rights” first may lead to legal problems. A large MENA company used our client images for promoting their business. We were able to reach an undisclosed settlement.
An employee, who spoke up about misconduct activities by his employer, got fired. A large MENA company got very upset after their employee spoke up about misconduct activities. They threatened him that if he does not sign a clearance letter (with a letter from him saying that what he said was incorrect), they will ban him from travel and report him as a criminal, and eventually, they did. He was stuck for 3 months in Riyadh, not knowing what to do. We were able to convince his employer to drop the false criminal charges and remove the travel ban. We reached a settlement agreement. Our client went back to his home country safely.
Buyer refused to pay commission to the agent. Our client (the agent) had an oral agreement with a buyer (large construction company). The agent negotiated the terms of a large deal and was promised a commission of $10 million dollars on closing the deal. The deal got closed and the agent never got paid.
