Starting a Business? Legal Assistance for Entrepreneurs

Starting a business is exciting and rewarding, as the future is filled with potential and promise. Our nation supports entrepreneurs and small businesses as they grow our economy. This year, National Small Business Week (NSBW) is being celebrated from April 28th through May 4th to recognize the hard work and ingenuity of our entrepreneurs and small business owners. The Sunshine State is entrepreneur-friendly, making it a great place to lay a solid foundation for future success. 

Launch Your Vision with Legal Confidence

At Legacy Law Associates, we recognize the challenges of starting a business. The legal landscape can be daunting for entrepreneurs, as many legal issues must be resolved before a business can become operational. Our legal team offers comprehensive legal guidance for business startups, creating a lawful and sound foundation. With decades of experience and knowledge in corporate and business law, we can turn your business idea into reality.

Choosing the Right Business Structure

Choosing the correct entity is your most critical decision when starting a business. Your chosen entity significantly affects your personal assets, potential liabilities, governance, and tax obligations. Common types of business structures are sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations. At Legacy Law Associates, we can help you choose the best way to structure your business entity to meet your goals. 

Obtaining Necessary Permits and Licenses

Florida does not have a statewide business license requirement. However, depending on the business you will be operating, you may need various permits and licenses. For example, registered nurses, dentists, and paramedics require a healthcare-related license through the Florida Department of Health. In contrast, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services provide business licenses and permits for the food and beverage industry. A sampling of other types of permits that may be needed are building permits, zoning permits, environmental permits, or special use permits. At Legacy Law Associates, we provide guidance to help you obtain business licenses and permits required for your startup. 

Drafting Contracts and Agreements

Contracts are the legal framework of a business, outlining the rights and responsibilities of all the parties involved. Especially during the startup phase of a business, these guidelines protect the interests of the owners, investors, employees, and vendors. At Legacy Law Associates, our meticulously drafted documents are clear, legally binding, and enforceable. They leave no room for ambiguity. By utilizing well-drafted contracts, misunderstandings and disputes are minimized, avoiding costly liability claims and lawsuits.
