Business Formation: Our firm is ready to assist you with the formation and organization of your business entity. We offer a wide variety of corporate services, including registration with the State of Florida Division of Corporations, preparation of articles of incorporation, organizational minutes and resolutions as well as assistance with administrative matters.

Business Transactions: The cornerstone to successful growth and prosperity of any company is the ability for the company to maintain and foster productive relationships. Whether the relationship is one of employer-employee, supplier-customer, landlord –tenant…whether business to business or partner to partner, the key to success is clear communication between the parties. Having a solid contract to clarify the roles, responsibilities and expectations of the parties helps to create a seamless organization operating with the flexibility to adjust quickly to an ever changing marketplace. More importantly, the contract is the focal point in which to avoid disputes (and resultant litigation). The importance of a well drafted contract is never really appreciated until a dispute arises or there is an immediate threat of litigation. To avoid being blind-sided by unnecessary litigation costs, our firm can help you to assess in advance, when and if a contract is needed and what it should encompass. With years of defining relationships through contracts (and resolving common and often complex business disputes), we can craft agreements tailored to your unique needs and corporate methodology. A fresh strategic perspective is often an added bonus. Give us a call so we can explore how our firm may simplify and streamline your contractual and overall business needs.
Regulatory Planning, Marketing and Compliance: Due to our ever changing government comprised of a vast array of regulatory bodies, it is critical to keep abreast of developments in governmental, regulatory and administrative regulations that directly and indirectly affect your business. Changes in law are constant and must be routinely monitored and addressed. For a small to mid-sized business, maneuvering through the federal and state regulatory landscape can be very confusing and replete with potential landmines. Business owners must not only be aware of federal and state laws that affect their company’s operations and transactions but should also have a system for adapting to changing legal requirements. Monitoring the legal landscape is a bare minimum necessity in a marketplace that demands corporate compliance and transparency. Our firm can assist your business in the nuts and bolts of establishing a solid compliance program, as well as, in updating existing practices and monitoring continued compliance within your industry. Just give us a call so we can discuss all of the opportunities to establish or improve your regulatory program.
