Via a posting at the German American ExecuNet group at Linkedin.com, attorney John Watkins of the law firm Chorey, Taylor & Feil in Atlanta (Buckhead), 3399 Peachtree Road, N.E., Suite 1700, The Lenox Building, Atlanta, Georgia 30326 alerts us to a podcast by John L. Watkins and Thomas L. McLain of Chorey, Taylor & Feil ("CTF") on "How International Companies Can Avoid Key Legal Mistakes in Doing Business in the United States (Part II)".
Watkins gives a short description of the podcast at the CTF law firm blog - and we reproduce the first paragraph of that posting below: (Friday, July 17, 2009, Part II of Podcast on Common Legal Mistakes Made by International Companies in Doing Business in the U.S. Now Available by John L. Watkins):
"Part II of our podcast series on Common Legal Mistakes International Companies Make in Doing Business in the U.S. is now available. In this podcast, Tom McLain and I provide the general background regarding legal issues in the U.S. This discussion provides the foundation for more specific issues to be discussed in later episodes. Tom and I discuss the sources of law in the U.S. and the fifty states, and address some of the key legal differences that exist in most U.S. jurisdictions when compared to other countries."Watkins closes by saying that:

We agree that Bone's is special. The atmosphere is cosy and comfortable (business casual dress), the food (steak, seafood, deserts) and drinks were simply fantastic and the service of the staff was exceptional. Bone's is located just off of Peachtree Road at 3130 Piedmont Rd NE, Atlanta, GA - Tel. (404) 237-2663.
It is sometimes promoted as the "Beverly Hills of the South" in reference to Beverly Hills, California, an area to which it is often compared....

Hardy Pace, one of Atlanta's founders, operated the ferry and owned much of what is now Buckhead, and as far west as Vinings. The area north of Buckhead, beyond the Atlanta city limit, is the city of Sandy Springs....
