Choosing the appropriate entity for your new business is one of the first important decisions you will make as an entrepreneur.

Once you have made your selection, we can help you draft the formation documents that will serve as the legal foundation of your new business. We will also formally register your company and walk you through your entity’s reporting requirements and any other legal considerations.
Contract Drafting and Review
Every business needs contracts whenever they engage with an employee, contractor, another company, or any other third party. A legal agreement defines the relationship, each party’s obligations, and contingencies. Each contract must be thoroughly prepared and analyzed to ensure it meets your expectations, accomplishes its intended goals, and sufficiently protects the interests of your organization.
Our team at Lusk, Drasites & Tolisano can assist with the drafting, negotiating, reviewing, and finalizing of many types of contracts, including:
- Formation Documents
- Employment Agreements
- Independent Contractor Agreements
- Nondisclosure Agreements
- Enterprise Service Agreements
- Franchise Agreements
- Master Service Agreements
- Vendor Service Agreements
- License Agreements
- Joint Venture Agreements
- Purchase Orders
- Property and Equipment Leases
- Real Estate Agreements
- Business Succession Planning Documents
In business, everyone is out to earn a buck, which is why transactions can be so lucrative. This reality is also why business relationships and deals can be fraught with complications and conflict.
A legal contract should spell out what is required of each party. If one party fails to deliver or comply, the relationship will tend to break down and necessitate litigation. In these scenarios, you will need legal professionals in your corner who are prepared to fight for you in and out of the courtroom.
We have handled cases involving:
- Breaches of Contract
- Violations of Non-Compete Agreements
- Intellectual Property Rights
- And More
In most circumstances, the party alleging a breach of contract in Florida may be able to recover damages directly associated with (and resulting from) the breach. However, the plaintiff will need to prove the defendant violated a material term of the contract. Our firm represents plaintiffs and defendants in these matters and will work to develop a strategic, compelling case. If your business suffered damages due to a breach of contract, we will make every effort to secure a fair settlement.
We encourage you to discuss your company’s needs with our Cape Coral business lawyers by calling (239) 908-4930 or contacting us online.
