Making a business in Florida – Part 4 of 9
To create a business in Florida, all one has to do is log on to the Sunbiz website and follow the prompts. It is no different and no harder than purchasing merchandise online.
While a corporation is said to be “incorporated” and an LLC “organized”, the result is that once approved, Articles are filed with the State and the entity is born.
Corporate lawyers often charge by the hour. The service they sell is their time and expertise. Given that it is so easy to incorporate a business on Sunbiz in Florida, it makes little sense to pay a lawyer at an hourly rate to log on and do that for you. Where a business attorney adds value is in guiding you to which type of business entity is right for you and in drafting the corporate governing documents you should have like an operating agreement or shareholder agreement.
The Law Office of David Steinfeld based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida can easily and effectively provide guidance in the formation of a business anywhere in Florida. Arguably the greatest value that a Board Certified expert business lawyer like David Steinfeld with almost 25 years of experience brings to your business is to craft and prepare the documents used in managing and operating your business called the corporate governance documents.
These documents include operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and partnership agreements. David Steinfeld also assists businesses in determining whether they need documents for dealing with parties collateral to and outside of the business, such as employees, vendors, and customers, like non-compete agreements, non-disclosures, and contracts.
Not every business needs a full complement of every document available to it at the time it opens. Which documents are appropriate and when in the lifecycle of the business they can or should be used is the benefit of consulting with David Steinfeld. It is helpful to business owners to know that some of these documents can more easily be put in place early on and later in the lifetime of the business it is more difficult to adopt them. Thus, there are considerations that apply to these documents that Mr. Steinfeld can explain with his expertise in the field. That counsel can make it much easier for a business owner to make informed decisions on the topic.
