Tampa Florida Business lawyer for drafting contracts, collections, and creating legal entities such as LLC's and corporations.

Contracts

Every serious agreement needs to be memorialized in writing. Otherwise, even honest people can disagree as to what was really intended. You are the best author of that agreement, but in many cases, you need the help of a lawyer to include ingredients that you may not have thought of. We’d be happy to help in drafting or giving advice.

Collections

If you are owed a debt, we can help you in getting a judgment.  We can then work with you to attempt to collect on it. The ability to collect is always something to be considered at the outset.  Getting a Judgment is something to be desired for many reasons, but collecting on a Judgment is an even bigger objective and may not always be available. There are practical considerations in pursuing collection and we would be happy to consider those with you also.

Corporations and other legal entities

The establishment of a business is a very important consideration for the owner.  The type of business and its fundamental entity of operation should be carefully considered. Choices include: proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, and others. Selection of the manner of operation may depend on any number of factors. It should be the simplest and safest means of operation for the subjective business so the potential for success is maximized.

When you conduct business, it is often best to operate in corporate form or under the umbrella of some other form of protective legal entity. Establishing the entity, even through the forms provided by the Secretary of State, can be confusing, and it is even more complicated in continuing the operation after the entity is established.

We can help you if you need to establish and maintain a Corporation (Profit or Non-Profit) or a LLC or a Partnership. In is important to operate your business carefully for many reasons, including IRS concerns.

Business Sales

Many times, businesses are established and grow and become very viable assets, and many times the owners of those businesses change their course in life and want to take a different direction. Then they need to sell their business to someone who can carry on the business and pay a fair price for it. This may seem like a simple procedure but it can be complicated. The businesses generally have contracts, employment relationships, leases, mortgages, liabilities, licenses, property rights, guarantees, and subscriptions. Many things must be taken into consideration. We can help in creating the contract for sale and purchase and in doing the closing.
