Business Law, Corporate and Contract Law

Businesses and corporations require the service of an experienced business attorney and/or corporate attorney to help them with business law, their legal needs and legal issues. If you are looking to start a new business or are a current business owner seeking advice, I can help. As your business lawyer, I will work hard as your corporate lawyer to obtain the best resolution for you in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Process of Opening a Business

The process of opening a business is much more involved than just opening the doors. No matter whether your business is the sale of goods or services, selecting the appropriate type of corporate or other business structure is important and can have an impact on the financial stability of your business. I can help you create the business entity that best fits your needs.

Business agreements, procedures in the event of death, incapacity or withdrawal, articles of incorporation, by-laws and other documents are of great importance when considering your new business’s needs. This is an exciting time for any new business owner, and these critical decisions will impact the way you do business.

At the law office of Patricia L. Daugherty, I provide the following business and corporate formation services:

  • Business incorporation (including S Corporations and C Corporations)
  • Business licensure
  • Business selling and purchasing
  • Other business and corporate law services

Business Contracts

Negotiating the elements of business contracts requires experience. Preparing contracts that contain the terms you need to effectively run a business while protecting your company’s interests is what I do. I can help you negotiate fair contracts with terms and conditions that make each party’s responsibilities clear and concise. Some of the business contracts I can help negotiate and prepare include:

  • Contracts for Sale of Business Assets
  • Lease Agreements
  • Real Estate Contracts for Sale and Purchase
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Non-Compete Agreements
  • Non-Solicitation Agreements
  • Independent Contractor Agreements

Business Dissolution

Business dissolution requires certain important steps including filing the appropriate documentation with the Florida Secretary of State and providing appropriate notice to creditors of the corporate or business dissolution, among other requirements. I can help you dissolve your business and overcome any issues in the closure.

If you are starting, operating or dissolving a corporation or business, having a qualified business, corporate and contract attorney to help you navigate the intricacies is important. Let me help you with your new business adventure or in the next step of your business.
