Starting a business in Florida is exciting but also a multifaceted process. Planning for your business may have taken years or maybe it only just came up because you were asked to join a business venture. No matter what brought you to this starting point, it is important to note that several steps go into starting a business. As such, it is imperative that these steps are taken, are understood and that you take appropriate steps to protect your business while it thrives.

While the fun part of starting a business might be coming up with the name, logo, where the office will be located and the overall business idea, there are several legal, contractual and regulatory issues you need to consider as well.
Business structure, contracts and compliance
When it comes to business entities, the most common are sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs and corporations. Depending on your business goals, as well as other factors involved, one may be a better fit than another.
Transactional and employment contracts are common contracts in the business world and having these properly thought out and drafted will better protect the business. Additionally, operating agreements, shareholder agreements and service contracts might be necessary as well. Having an attorney draft these agreements can be very beneficial to your business.
No matter what type of business you decide to start, there is some form of government-enforced rules and regulations with which the business must comply. Criminal penalties could occur for noncompliance, making it imperative to ensure that you take proper steps to avoid these situations.
Starting a business can become complex very quickly. It can soon feel overwhelming, making it challenging to navigate on your own. In these matters, our law firm can provide the guidance needed to get you on track, helping you protect your rights and the interests of your business.
