Therapeutics which according to my research is a clinical stage company that develops novel therapies for treating nervous system diseases announced that it had filed a motion in the United States District Court of Nevada to amend a complaint against the Laidlaw and the two of its principles (James Ahern and Matthew Eitner). I am meant to understand that this motion is a second amended complaint since it is part of a suit that was filed in the same court (Nevada District Court) previously. The proposed amendment of the complaint poses other claims against LaidLaw and its two principles (the defendants). The additional claims include defamation, tortuous interference alongside critical economic advantage, defamation per se, and violations of various sections such as section 1962(c) and 19962(d) an act that provides provisions on corrupt organizations and section 10(b) concerning the security exchange bill. Relmada Therapeutics according to how they express their grievances, I understand that they have suffered substantial damages due to the defendant’s defamatory actions which I believe they have been highlighted in this complaint. Earlier, Relmada Company noted that the District Court of Nevada had issued a restraining order (temporary order) against the Laidlaw and its principles for their provision of misleading and false proxy materials. According to the Relmada’s Board, Laidlaw and its principles must be compelled to compensate their company for all the damages suffered and an immediate cause of action taken to prevent Laidlaw from damaging its reputation in the future.

It is essential for businesses to build a strong online presence. Furthermore, they need to closely follow their online reputation to ensure that it reflects the positive attributes of their establishment. A good online reputation attracts customers to your business while a bad reputation can severely hurt your bottom line.
It only takes one bad review to spark off a series of negative comments and publicity that will inevitably hurt your reputation. Effective online reputation allows you to always remain on top of any situation that arises – good or bad. Below are 5 simple ways to improve your reputation, courtesy of

1. Follow Your Brand Closely

Brand monitoring allows you to know exactly what is happening with your reputation and control any positive or negative reactions that arise. There are several effective tools available that allow you to monitor your brand such as Mention. You may also choose to use Google alerts to see what online users post about you.

2. Update your Website, Blogs, and Social Media Pages

Relevancy is required if you want to rank well in search engine results. This means posting fresh content on a regular basis, implementing effective social media strategies and using white hat SEO tactics. If possible, outsource talent to help you with content creation because this allows you to concentrate on your business.

When facing bad press or a PR disaster, your first instinct will be to respond immediately to your detractors – don’t. It is better to buy yourself time to cool down, gather your thoughts and any other relevant information on the matter, and seek advice on how to manage your PR going forward. Do not respond negatively or attempt a cover-up.

4. Admit Mistakes and Fix Them

If your business made mistakes, admit it and start fixing them. While you do not need to go into details, owning up to mistakes and apologizing is the quickest way to prevent further fall-out and damage to your reputation. Afterwards, start working to win back your reputation and trust.

Those that try to follow the money will likely fall behind and struggle. Furthermore, financial experts on TV and the radio will often spend time speculating about individual stocks, which is a practice that often doesn’t work out.
