Families First Means Paid Leave (4/7/2020) - There are currently two COVID-19 related acts:  The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. I know everyone wants to know about the Payroll Protection Program under the CARES Act. We’ve been looking at it and talking to banks, but let’s address the Families First Act ... Read more
Working Virtual? Here Are Some Tools We Use: (3/31/2020) - We have offices in Cedarburg and Madison – but in reality, we work all over the place (or did, until we all started working from home). Making that happen seems pretty easy, especially with technology, but getting the right mix and hitting our stride took time – and there were bumps in the road. Along ... Read more
Best Laid Plans (3/24/2020) - I had grand plans for today’s blog post. I should discuss the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. I should discuss the different loan and business programs available in Wisconsin. I should do a lot of things. But really, what I want to do is just figure out a way to get us all through the ...

Social Distancing: You Check Out Any Time You Like, But You Can Never Ship? (3/17/2020) - We’ve been getting a lot (a lot) of questions about how breweries, wineries, or distilleries can practice and encourage effective “social distancing” with their clientele. So, let’s review for the record: Basic Rule: Breweries, Wineries, and Distilleries can sell at their place of manufacture/tasting room for off-premise consumption. In other words, they can all sell ... Read more
Side Gig or Not: Limit Your Liability. (3/10/2020) - I have been asked quite a bit lately about when one should create a business entity like an LLC. I get told things like: “It is just a small side gig.” or, “It is a direct sales thing.” And I get it. You don’t know if it is going anywhere, and you don’t want to ... Read more
First to File? First to Use? It’s Not the Same Everywhere! Thoughts on Trademark Strategy for Global Companies: (3/3/2020) - Trademarks are our jam at OG+S. This post is a short one about trademark strategy and what to think about if your brand has a global reach. First to Use: In the United States, we have a “first to use” system when it comes to trademarks. What that means is that the Company who uses ... Read more
We ARE Trying. (2/25/2020) - It has been a busy first quarter for our clients, which means a busy time for us. One thing that has kept us hopping is the purchase or sale of businesses. Often, but not always, that takes the form of an asset sale. That means assets of the business are sold – not ownership of ... Read more
Commercial Real Estate Purchases and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (aka Superfund) (2/18/2020) - When people say “Superfund,” I don’t think purchases of “run of the mill” commercial real estate come to mind (as often as they maybe should). Prior to becoming a lawyer, the word “Superfund” evoked images of Mad Max-esque chemical spill disasters, rampant white collar crime and greedy capitalism in my mind – the purchase of ... Read more
The Licensing Lion (2/11/2020) - We have written in the past about the control that a copyright owner has over the subject of his or her copyright. However, it seems some people aren’t paying attention to the message that they can’t simply use (and especially charge money for) other people’s works without permission. In this case linked to above, there ... Read more
Risk: Traveling Internationally With Your Cell Phone & Laptop (2/4/2020) - Spoiler alert everyone – I’m in Europe right now. Special thanks to my awesome business partners, Erin Ogden and Jeff Glazer, for making this trip possible. As all business owners know, finding time to vacation is tough, especially if you don’t have partners to lean on. As a way of background before we get started ... Read more
