Abstract
      A company that is just being formed will have many issues to be considered over the lifetime of the enterprise. Legal problems can range from contractual disputes to what types of warranties will affect the daily activities of the corporation. In this paper, our team is going to discuss the Alternative Dispute Resolution process, how it fits into our business and what types of ADR the company will use. This paper will also explain the application of agency law to United Organic Pasta‚Äôs business operation and what kind of legal perspective the company will take if the agent-principle relationship is used. The definition and applicability of legal nuances for the different types of business entities and the impact the types will have on each person of the company will be explored. Lastly, the influence that e-business has on the overall business operation will be contemplated.
