Business Entity Formation
Will your new company be formed as a corporation, partnership, limited liability company (LLC) or some other Florida business entity? The decision you make has significant consequences for every aspect of your business, including taxation, liability, management of daily affairs and major decisions, the ability to sell the business or transfer your ownership interest, and more. Take a moment to sit down with an experienced business legal professional who can advise you on the entity that best fits your particular business model needs and goals. Julianne Frank Law can prepare and file all documents to register your entity with the State of Florida and provide you with the instruments you need to get up and running, including LLC operating agreements, partnership agreements, corporate shareholder agreements, stock redemption agreements, cross-purchase agreements and more.
Corporations must meet a myriad of local, state and federal rules and regulations to comply with the law and avoid costly fines or shutdowns. Some industries are more tightly regulated than others, but all must meet certain basic requirements to keep in line. Julianne Frank Law will help you stay in compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, the Florida Business Corporation Act, and other laws and regulations relevant to your business. We’ll provide you with guidelines for shareholders and the board of directors and make sure you understand what you need to know regarding securities, banking and financing laws and regulations.
Business Succession Planning
It can take years of effort to build your business into a thriving entity, and you’ll want to see it continue to flourish even after you step down and hand the reins to a trusted employee or the next generation. Transferring ownership of the business is at some point a necessity, and planning for that eventuality helps ensure that business succession will occur smoothly in the best interests of all involved. Whether planning for eventualities like illness or accident or simply planning an orderly process for retirement, Julianne Frank Law can make sure the right instruments and agreements are in place for a trouble-free transition.
Our experience in asset protection and wealth preservation, as well as business law, puts us in the position to figure out the best solutions to meet your business succession needs. For instance, drafting buy-sell agreements or other buyout provisions helps you control who buys into your business and set a buyout value for each partner or a means for determining a fair price. Another approach might be a life insurance policy for each partner listing the company as the beneficiary, where the proceeds can be used to buy out the partner’s share. For family-owned businesses, a Family Limited Partnership is often an ideal tool for transferring control from one generation to the next, designating the appropriate successors for each role rather than leaving to the successors to figure out. Let us create the right solutions that work best for you.
