Comprehensive Legal Counsel and Representation for Florida Businesses
When legal issues arise in your business, you need guidance on the spot. Are the risks significant enough that you need to take pause, or can you continue forging the road ahead? If you are being threatened with litigation, what is your best course of action to avoid a costly and contentious dispute? If a third party is interfering with your business, what legal recourse do you have available?
For many large companies, these are the types of day-to-day questions that are handled by in-house counsel. In-house attorneys work closely with company leadership on a daily basis; and, as a result of their integration with the company’s operations, they are able to efficiently offer solutions and recommendations that reflect the company’s culture, core values and business goals. But, for many companies, it simply is not practical to hire an in-house legal team – even though they face many of the same challenging issues as large, publicly-traded corporations.
“Outside” General Counsel Services for Florida-Based Companies
This is where our corporate counsel services come into play. As your company’s “outside” corporate counsel, we can offer the same level of insights and responsiveness as an in-house legal team at a fraction of the cost. The attorneys representing your company will devote the time necessary to learn about your business and will make themselves available to your executive and operational leaders on a schedule and budget that work for you. We will play a proactive role in identifying and managing your company’s legal risks, and we will work closely with you to ensure that we have an accurate understanding of your needs, goals and priorities.
While we offer custom-tailored corporate counsel solutions to companies of all sizes in Florida, our general services include:
- Business entity formation, maintenance and compliance
- Custom contract drafting
- Negotiation of customer, vendor and other third-party contracts
- Contract administration
- Employment and labor law counseling
- Evaluation of new product and service offerings
- Response to third-party cease-and-desist letters and other demands
- Risk assessment for transactions and disputes
We also represent clients in merger and acquisition transactions; and, when necessary, we serve as plaintiff’s and defense counsel in business and commercial litigation.
Custom-Tailored Solutions and Long-Term Business Relationships
No two companies’ legal needs are the same. Risk tolerances and priorities vary; and, while some companies are content to maintain their existing market share, others prefer a state of perpetual growth. We tailor our corporate counsel services to each individual client, and we emphasize building solid, comfortable working relationships that allow us to effectively serve our clients’ legal needs through all stages of the business lifecycle.
