Vero Beach Corporate Counsel Attorney
Corporations regularly have to make decisions with far-reaching legal implications that affect both internal structure and outside relations with customers, suppliers, and the public. Having a dedicated in-house counsel to vet issues with legal consequences may not fit with the growth stage of a particular company, nor seem necessary from a workload and cost perspective. However, corporations still needed a trusted source to obtain legal advice about dispute resolution, starting a business, or structuring and executing complex commercial transactions, among other common business concerns. Our Vero Beach corporate counsel attorneys offer a cost-effective and streamlined approach to meeting all the legal needs of a corporation, by focusing on meeting the goals and demands of an organization through optimizing efficiency and heading off the impact of hard times.
Deciding the business structure under which an entity will operate is one of the most important decisions a business owner makes. Depending on the form, be it partnership, limited liability, corporation, or other, the business form governs taxation, legal liability, the structure of management, and how a business may be transferred or sold. Consequently, picking the right business type is essential to adequately addressing the kind of company being formed, how much complexity an owner wants to control overall, and daily operations, as well as the available financing avenues an owner might want to access. The experienced attorneys at Markarian & Hayes have an extensive understanding of the nuances of business formation, including the intricacies of drafting bylaws, shareholder agreements, and operating agreements, and will utilize this knowledge to help new companies avoid the mistakes often made at this critical juncture.
Business, Commercial, and Corporate Transactions
Contracts are the lifeblood of any business, and drive every relationship a company has with customers, suppliers, shareholders, and employees. Thus, contracts control both external and internal transactions and associations, and our Vero Beach corporate counsel attorneys are skilled at negotiating and drafting agreements that are advantageous to the growth and legal protection of their clients. Some examples of business transactions we draft and review include:
- Employment agreements, including noncompete and non-disclosure agreements;
- Shareholder agreements;
- Licensing, supply, and distribution contracts;
- Stock purchase, transfer, and option agreements; and
- Contracts for the purchase, sale, and lease of commercial real estate.
In addition to assisting with negotiating and drafting commercial agreements, our attorneys provided detailed assessments of agreements throughout their lifecycles to ensure they are in compliance with the law and regulatory requirements and are still operating in a company’s favor. These services cut down on the possibility of misinterpretations by parties to a contract or disputes, and also provide a means to providing stronger protections should disputes arise.
Disputes are an unfortunate and unavoidable part of doing business. While some can be resolved amicably through communication and compromise, others will require the assistance of legal counsel, and perhaps litigation, to settle. Legal disputes cost companies time, money, and resources, and they need efficient and cost-effective approaches to solving these issues, while securing their own interests. Our dedicated Vero Beach corporate counsel attorneys understand these concerns and provide a wide range of resolution options, such engaging in alternative resolution processes to address issues of time and money, as well as representing clients in litigation, and in front of regulatory bodies.
