When you are looking to start a new business, you will need to choose the right entity type. The entity you select will impact your personal liability, how the business is organized, how decisions will be made, how disputes will be settled, and how you (and the business) will be taxed. It is not a decision to be made lightly, and it is important to have a legal professional thoroughly review the consequences of your choice.
Our Naples business law attorneys can assist you with forming a:
- Limited Partnership (LP)
- Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
- Limited Liability Company (LLC)
- C or S Corporation
After you choose an entity, you will need to draft the applicable formation documents and operating agreements. These pivotal contracts will determine how your company is run. We can assist with the drafting of these contracts, register your new company with the appropriate regulatory authorities, and review any reporting or other legal obligations that apply to your organization.
Contract Drafting and Review
Businesses use contracts to protect their interests when engaging with other companies, employees, independent contractors, and any other third party. Signing a contract has legal implications, which is why it is paramount to have an attorney review and negotiate every legal agreement your business is a party to.
A strong contract will establish each party’s rights and obligations. It will also include contingencies should any contractual party fail to live up to these obligations.
Our legal professionals at Lusk, Drasites & Tolisano can draft, negotiate, and finalize many types of legal agreements, including:
- Business Succession Planning Documents
- Employment Agreements
- Enterprise Service Agreements
- Formation Documents
- Franchise Agreements
- Independent Contractor Agreements
- Joint Venture Agreements
- License Agreements
- Master Service Agreements
- Nondisclosure Agreements
- Property and Equipment Leases
- Purchase Orders
- Real Estate Contracts
- Vendor Service Agreements
Breaches of Contract, Business Disputes, and Commercial Litigation
Business transactions are often high-stakes endeavors with significant commercial assets on the line. Whenever a company is wronged, it is in its best interest to leverage all available remedies to recover damages.
Sound, well-written contracts can help proactively avoid disputes by articulating each party’s rights and obligations – including instructions for what will happen in the event of a breach or failure to comply. A party may still refuse to honor the terms of the contract when these contingencies are triggered, forcing the need for litigation.
We are prepared to represent plaintiffs and defendants in cases involving:
- Breaches of Contract
- Intellectual Property Rights
- Non-Compete Agreements and Other Restrictive Covenants
- And More
Many business disputes involve alleged breaches of contract. In these instances, the wronged party can sue the breaching party and attempt to recover compensation. To win, the wronged party must be able to prove they suffered damages as a direct result of the defendant materially breaching the contract. Our Naples business lawyers offer ardent representation in these cases and will fight to protect and advance your organization’s interests in and out of the courtroom.
If your business has become involved in a dispute and you need help understanding your rights and options, do not hesitate to call (239) 908-4930 or contact us online.
