Business Planning And Formation
Much like building a proper foundation for a building, the steps that are taken early on when establishing a business can make a profound difference throughout its life cycle. If you are looking to start a business, it is important to have a law firm on your side with the experience and resources necessary to protect your interests now and in the future.
At Drummond Wehle LLP, we help business owners throughout the Greater Tampa area with some of the most important legal issues they face. Our attorneys bring a tremendous amount of experience with critical issues such as risk management, wealth preservation, and federal and Florida tax issues.
Choosing The Right Entity
The first important issue is choosing the business entity - such as corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and partnerships - that will be the most advantageous for achieving the business's goals and limited personal liability.
Business Succession Planning
Part of properly forming a business is having a plan for how the business will be handled in the future. Business succession planning is key. You can pay now to make sure there is a sound plan in place, or you can pay more later due to cumbersome legal proceedings and the chaos of litigation.
Full-Service Representation For Businesses
Once an entity is chosen, we can be relied upon to provide sound advice and services such as:
- Shareholder/partner/owner agreements
- Employee relations, including non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Vendor/supplier/customer relations
- Financing of business entities, including venture capital
