Major Brands appeals ruling in Bacardi suit - St. Louis Business Journal

Major Brands appeals ruling in Bacardi suit - St. Louis Business Journal | Developing Financial News | Scoop.it
Local liquor wholesaler Major Brands Inc. has filed an appeal of a decision by a Florida court which ruled in favor of Bacardi USA Inc. in an ongoing legal battle regarding liquor distribution contracts in the state of Missouri.
more...
Chuck Devers's curator insight, June 4, 8:22 AM

The IMPORTANT MESSAGE in this article centers on "Legal Venue" and its a critical part of the engagement agreements your firm may enter into with other parties.  In this case, the company (Major Brands) relied for nearly 80 years on the implicit understanding that any legal matters would be settle in the company's home state - Missouri.  That was a FATAL ERROR - the vendor (Bacardi) was able to get the legal issue resolved in ITS home state of Florida.

 

That singular distinction caused Major Brands to lose one of its LARGEST VENDORS and cause the greatest downturn in sales in the company's 80 year history.

 

LESSON- think very, very carefully about the whole concept of "Legal Venue" when you write contracts with clients across state lines.  The "home court advantage" could be in the balance, and tilt the decision the wrong way.

There are so many different paths that can bring a person to a successful career in finance and investment banking!  My personal journey began with a Presidential appointment to co-head a national committee at the age of 24 - because no other career politician wanted to be appointed by President Richard Nixon in the last months of his Presidency.  That break landed me a position as the capital finance manager of the 2nd largest bond finance program in the country - at age 25.  Openings come in unusual and often unplanned ways - and its very important to be alert to opportunities, think with an open mind, and have unending faith in yourself and your ability to overcome all obstacles - most of which exist in your mind alone.  The world is begging for achievers, go be one yourself, starting today!
