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 the way, we picked up tools that helped and made things actually pretty easy. Here’s a few: Microsoft Teams Teams…
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 bottles to go. Even if you are a brewpub, your Combination “Class B” License lets you sell for off-premise consumption;…

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 their trademark first has “first dibs” and can stop someone else, who used the trademark at a later date (i.e.…

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 the business entity. As I was preparing one of the asset sales, I was looking at a prior asset purchase agreement.…
