Small Business Lawyers Can Help with Business Ownership

At Elevate Business Law, we help small business owners throughout Florida with their business legal needs. It is our mission to help progressive businesses grow bigger and better while also providing valuable and practical advice. We focus on moving you forward.

We scale our services depending on the stage of your business. Whether you are buying a business, starting a business, or maintaining your business, we provide practical, efficient advice and counsel throughout every stage.

Our legal team serves as your legal team at all points, from choosing the right entity at its formation to managing daily operations and developing a strategy for successes or divesture. Our lawyers can help with legal concerns related to owning your business, growing your business, or protecting your business. We can work with you on a project basis or an ongoing basis. Here are some of the key areas where we can help:

Buying A Business

When you’re buying an existing business, there are several things to consider. We’ve helped many clients through the purchasing process and can guide you through what you need to be doing to protect yourself and increase your chances of success. From conducting due diligence, to advising on good terms in the contract, to negotiating with the landlord, we can offer our experience and guidance to helping you get through to closing. Because we have a long-term relationship in mind, we look forward and take into consideration those issues that you will be dealing with after closing when you are the owner of the business. We calculate those considerations into the purchasing process so the transition is as smooth and simple as possible.

Starting A Business

If you are looking to start a business, we can help you design the business structure that best fits your goals. There are many ways to set up a new business and we can guide you to the right way for you and your business plan. Many times we can help clients avoid costly mistakes when setting up a new business. Once we determine the best structure for you, we form the business entity and take care of all of the internal formation requirements. We make it easy for you to focus on putting the other pieces of the new business into place.

Maintaining A Business

Once you own a business, there are considerations and responsibilities you will continue to have with regards to your business entity. Running your business (conducting the activities that generate revenue and planning for new projects and directions) is different from maintaining your business (actions that need to be taken for ownership of the business entity). We can help you with your responsibilities.

Entity Governance

Internal Documentation

Ownership Agreements

Selling A Business

When the time comes for you to sell your business, we can help guide you through the process. An exit can become complicated and we understand that it can be difficult for you to know what is expected. We have years of experience helping business owners sell their business and move on to their next project or goal. We will give you the benefit of our experience so that you can feel in control of the process.

Business Compliance

Most businesses have some level of regulatory compliance. Depending on your type of business activity, you may have to comply with many government rules and regulations. It’s not always easy to figure out what your obligations are and we can bring clarity to the process.
