Business & Corporate Law
Whether you are in the throes of a start-up or you have a business that’s been thriving for years, our attorneys can answer many confusing corporate matters ranging from entity formation, corporate maintenance, and business contracts to advice concerning acquisition, formation, operation, and dissolution.
We advise clients on how to avoid mistakes in their business agreements and provide customized contracts, such as operating agreements and shareholder agreements, to fit each concern. We also address employment contract concerns and can answer questions concerning liability.
By hiring attorneys who can counsel you to meet the necessary formalities and desires you wish to achieve, your business will operate more smoothly and give you piece of mind. Whether your business is large or small, we would be honored to be your business attorneys.
The saying “its not personal, its business” is true only when you’re not the one getting shafted. When business between partners or competitors goes awry, major financial interests and positions are at stake. When a former partner or shareholder, disgruntled employee or major competitor interferes with your business or defames your business, they may have committed a business tort against you.
Sole Law also helps business owners fight and defend claims regarding fraud such as fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent inducement to contract, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, and unfair competition under Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act statute.
With experience on both sides of the conflict, we wish to help businesses recover from the effects business torts have on their financial well being and personal lives.
If you have engaged in a relationship where one party offers services and another offers either services or payment in exchange, you have probably entered into a contract. These exchanges are a necessary part of how we operate. The problem, however, is that many people do not realize the importance of writing things down until they end up in a big problem, often costing thousands in legal fees.
At Sole Law, we draft and review contracts covering a range of transactions from commercial real estate sales and leases to business employment and independent contract services agreements. Contracts are important not only to delineate the obligations each party has, but to offer remedies in the event one party does not perform their side of the deal. And, in cases such as real estate transactions and for goods sold over $500.00, contracts must be written and signed in order to satisfy the Statute of Frauds to enforce the contract. When a transaction is for the sale of goods, the Uniform Commercial Code guides contract interpretation and rules.
Without knowing about these certain guidelines and rules, you can find yourself either without an enforceable contract or without proper knowledge and arguments to defend an enforceable contract. At Sole Law, we like to help parties get their agreement in writing before disputes arise as to the formation, fairness, and enforceability. We hope to help you before that point, but we also represent clients either fighting to have their contracts enforced or defending against enforcement through mediation and litigation. Whether the goal involves contract formation or contract dispute resolution, we look forward to hearing from you.
