Florida Business Law
Business law is defined as the law for business entities. Common business entities include corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships. The relevant issues for business law include the incorporation of the business, business licensing, the sale and transfer of business interests, and risk management to protect the business.
Business incorporation requires a decision as to which corporate entity to utilize in your business. Early on, the owners, officers and directors of the business should establish the rules and procedures for running the business. These rules and procedures can be set forth in a shareholder's or operating agreement.
All business require certain licenses in order to conduct business. Examples of such licenses include certificates of use, occupancy licenses, and professional licenses for certain industries. The licensing procedure through local and state government agencies requires significant time and patience to process.
Florida Business Purchases and Sales
The purchase and sale of a business poses significant challenges. A contract must be drafted that sets forth the proper understanding of the seller and buyer. The specific property to be included and excluded in the sale must be identified. The terms of the sale must include the date for closing, inspection periods, and payment options. If the sale is to be financed, mortgage instruments and promissory notes must be drafted and signed by the parties. Finally, the parties must meet to attend a final closing to transfer ownership to the new owner.
Florida Risk Management
Risk management is the proactive approach of limiting liability or claims. Business procedures are reviewed to determine if there are better approaches or methods that can be taken. For example, old contracts, applications for credit, and the collection process itself can be reviewed to determine if there is a better way to ensure that your clients pay and are collectible.
