I am selling my business. In 2014 I entered into a 1 year

I am selling my business. In 2014 I entered into a 1 year exclusive agreement with a broker that ended in 2015. I entered into a different exclusive agreement with a different broker earlier this year that lasts 120 days, and ends next month.Both of these brokers have now introduced me to separate buyers who are both offering identical deals, same money, same terms.Exclusive broker will not budge on their commission (they initially told me that they would sell our business inside of 4 months for a LOT more than the offer that is presented now), however, now that the offer is a lot lower, they won't budge on commission. Which would normally be fine, except the other deal we have on the table from the other broker is with much less commission.I have communicated this with both brokers, one will negotiate, the exclusive one will not. I told them I'm just being up front and trying to get the best deal possible and not trying to cheat anyone out of anything, but the offers we have on the table are for far less than what they "valued" my business for.My question is, can we just wait until the exclusive agreement with the high commission broker ends and sell to the other party, without owing the exclusive broker $$?

I am the Project founder, I founded this project several

I am the Project founder, I founded this project several years ago. We had a facility where we were planning to create this event in, there was an Asst. Director for Events which was part of the facility. She sat in most of our meetings and also signed a few contracts of participation because she was going to provide models for the show. When we were going to sign the contract for the facility, The fees had gone up immensely and me and my team decided to hold off on contracting the facility, we negotiated for about 1/2 year more without any success. At that time I had a major family crisis and all my plans were frozen. Recently I've been researching my project to develop my plan. When I surprisingly found my project in full motion, the creator being the Asst.Director of events from the facility where I was planning to have the event. She used my projects name, idea, concept and some of my sponsors.

I'm looking to start an llc film company that could possibly

I'm looking to start an llc for a film company that could possibly operate in multiple states - how to navegate? I primarily shoot music videos and weddings. How would an llc work if I have an umbrella llc for music videos and weddings films with 2 separate names. If i register in indiana and want to shoot in ohio, michigan, florida, etc.. do i have to take other states to allow that? do i need a representative or can i do all this on my own'? would i need a rep in each state? What if i want to employ someone for the day as an assistant? how will i know if my llc is compliant with laws and completely legal? how would tax forms for such an llc work and when would i pay taxes? state taxes in other states i work in? would it be necessary to have a separate bank account for the company? and are their rules on paying yourself?This llc will be exclusive to shooting video or taking photos. Also if i do contracts for shoots. must that be drafted by a lawyer or can i make my own?

Just Answer Lawyers,I am investing in a startup liquor

Hi Just Answer Lawyers,I am investing in a startup liquor (rum) company, and while the term sheet is standard, I would like to amend it to include an ability to sell the product and/or engage in the ability to create contracts with local distributors (I am a US citizen, but reside in Australia at present and travel often/have a strong network of contacts to try to sell this product). I want to recieve 5% of the gross sales amount credited to me either as a one time cash payment (when the company sells or is bought) or as convertible to equity based on the company closing its financing round at a value of 7,000,000 USD.TL:DR:I am investing in a CA (USA Based) rum company. I want the right to sell this rum to anyone I can and get 5% of the gross sales. They don't have to pay me instantly. What do I put in the Term Sheet to achieve this goal. Thank you.
