Starting A Business

Florida law allows for a dizzying array of business entities: corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, limited partnership. We will work with you, your accountant, and your partners to select the corporate structure that works best for you and your business.

The most important piece of the business formation puzzle is the creation of an agreement among the partners about how the business will be managed and run. Termed a shareholder agreement, operating agreement, or partnership agreement, this document needs to be carefully drafted to properly shield you from liability, provide a workable management structure for your business, but not overly confuse or complicate your ability to run your business. We help make sure you and your partners have discussed all the important issues and address them in writing.

Buying or Selling A Business

Buying or selling a business is complicated. There are often regulatory issues, franchise issues, financing arrangements, title problems, employee concerns, and other matters that must be addressed.
