Laidlaw’s Shady Practices Brought to Light

Anyone that has been following the debacle between Relmada Therapeutics and Laidlaw & Company will be happy to know that a U.S. federal court has issued an order in favor of Relmada Therapeutics. Specifically, the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada has issued a restraining order against Laidlaw & Company, as well as an injunction to prevent them from continuing to spread false information.

Laidlaw and its principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern, have a history of spreading false information and using generally deceitful tactics to try and bully other companies into following their lead. As hopeless as the situation may feel sometimes as an outsider looking in, it’s nice to see that sometimes the courts are willing to take a stand against big business and protect the underdog. In the case of Relmada Therapeutics, the dispute originally took place after Laidlaw made attempts to seize control of Relmada Therapeutics. While it’s true that Laidlaw did at one point serve as an investment banker for Relmada, it’s clear that their two business philosophies are inherently incompatible.

Luckily, the Chief Executive Officer of Relmada Therapeutics agrees with me, as he is quoted as saying that his company’s interests clearly do not coincide with Laidlaw & Company’s. If you’ve never heard the name Laidlaw & Company, you might be forgiven for thinking this is just some overblown dispute between two competing companies. In truth, this dispute gets to a deeper problem within Laidlaw & Company’s business practices and ethics. Specifically, Laidlaw & Company has repeatedly proven in the past that they will exploit anyone or anything in order to make a profit for themselves, regardless of the damage it may cause. This tendency towards the unethical is evident in their dealings with Relmada Therapeutics, but other financial disputes as well. It’s for this reason that the court has had no issue in warning Matthew Eitner and James Ahern to cease spreading false information to try and justify their actions.

I Had To Use Technology From Eric Pulier And People Doing Things

I had to use technology from Eric Pulier and People Doing Things in high school because it was the way we had to get through our classes. I found myself in a special ed class for a couple periods a day because I had a hard time concentrating due to a couple different disorders brought on by injuries. I had to have something that would help me concentrate, but we had never heard of adaptive technology back them. We just thought that we would have to grit it out until we graduated.

Eric Pulier and People Doing Things brought us some things that helped with a lot of different problems. Not all the things that we got from Eric Pulier were going to help me, but they helped other people in my classes. I had no idea this was even an option because it was soon after they started really taking special ed seriously. We had teachers who were just trying to get us through the day, and then they had all this new stuff to work with.

That meant that I was going to graduate, but then I thought that I would still need to make sure that I had something that would help me when I went to college. I just went right back to Eric Pulier with my teacher’s help, and we got him to give us some new stuff that I could take to college with me. I actually held onto those things for a long time because I knew that I would still be using them even when I started working.

I think the best thing that happened was when Eric Pulier turned up at our school.

John Goullet: Someone with a Keen Eye

When you work for an IT staffing company, you have to have a keen eye for talent. You have to see things that other people might miss or overlook in certain people. Too often, people follow a certain formula when it comes to hiring people. They have a sheet of paper and if someone doesn’t fit what they are looking for or fit into a neat little category, they check them off the list without even giving them a fair chance. That is a real shame because you can miss out on a golden gem just because they don’t check all of your categories and aren’t exactly what you are looking for.

Life isn’t meant to be made up of pieces of paper and just resumes. There is much more to life than that. There are certain measurable that can’t be viewed on a piece of paper. Sometimes you have to throw someone into the water and see if they sink or swim. For instance, someone might have a pitch perfect resume and they look great on paper. However, when they actually have to perform the job and do it, they fold under the pressure and are unable to handle it and find it too overwhelming for them. On the other hand, maybe there is some that is perfect for the job but they might have one or two things missing on their resume.

That is where someone like John Goullet comes in, as he can separate the good from the bad and he has an awareness unlike anyone I’ve ever seen. Diversant considers themselves very lucky to have him on board as he seems to know the answers before others might even know them. He just feels it in his bones. He can read people very well and he knows the right questions to ask and doesn’t follow a specific script of what an employee should be according to a sheet of paper that someone printed out.

The yield has been long term and phenomenal. Success must be shared, so James Dondero stated that, “Our contributions make the greatest impact in our community and the causes we support.” He is so pleased to have Linda Owen a the helm of the giving management arm of Highland Capital that he described her as, “proven.” with a “track record of building effective public-private partnerships.” Her ability to visualize what the goals in giving are at Highland will fit right in. He also stated that her talents will “make a tangible impact on our community.”

So Dallas is in great shape because of these annual gifts from the team at Highland Capital and The Dallas Foundation, where Linda Owens is President of it charitable grant giving and funding projects. Some of the more high profile recipients of these funds are presidential libraries such as the George W. Bush. Local health science research funding has been granted to the Center for Brain Health.

Keeping the young minds engaged in learning and growing in power through knowledge, the Uplift Education fund has also been chosen for giving. There are many others that will receive financial gifts as well.

Dallas deserves the best from those who have reached the stratosphere in financial success and have a passion for sharing that success through giving as Dondero alongside Linda Owen both do.
