Business Law: for Busy Owners

We understand that the demands put on small business are formidable and that the entrepreneur, who may have a great business idea and may have the knowledge and talent to make a great product, can be swamped by the “business” of business.

It is important for an entrepreneur to know and understand the business formats which are available under Florida law. These include sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies, or limited partnerships, to name a few. The entrepreneur needs to understand the rights and responsibilities which flow from each business format so that the new business has the best chance of succeeding in the business market.

The business purchaser or seller needs protection for possibly the most important transactions of the business person’s life. Once the business is established, the business should have an attorney as part of a team which should include a CPA, an insurance person, an accountant and a banker. The attorney can answer legal questions, draft contracts, ensure compliance with state and federal regulation, establish employee policies, assist in customer-business conflicts, and generally assist in protecting the business. This assistance makes the entrepreneur’s life more manageable and enhances the likelihood of success.

All businesses need this attention, whether you are running a pet house sitting service, manufacturing tennis rackets, renting commercial or residential property, repairing computers in your home, or leasing 2500 square foot of space and repairing conversion vans. Whether you are the sole employee or you have a crew of 500 employees, there are rules and regulations, relationships and tax matters which directly apply to you and your business.
