Business law in Florida covers such areas as the formation and maintenance of partnerships, corporate finance and taxation, antitrust and bankruptcy laws, securities regulations, mergers and acquisitions, labor laws, white-collar crime, and many other areas.
Your chosen legal representation must have not only the resources but also the resolve for pursuing cases in the highest courts of the state and the nation. The law firm should also have enough experience to spot, assess and resolve claims early, thereby your company millions of dollars in payouts.
An interdisciplinary approach to business disputes can enable the firm you engage to address contract, energy, construction, bankruptcy, real estate, and even insurance and financial issues as business concerns, not merely the elements of their chosen trial strategy.
Few areas of law change as constantly or require as much balance between practical and legal aspects as labor and employment law. The employer-employee relationship and the entanglements it creates lead to a massive demand for legal advice. You need the kind of legal advice that can supply creative solutions to any and all disputes before they mature into formal claims or full-fledged litigation.
Labor and employment law encompasses many types of cases, like discrimination and harassment, wrongful termination and constructive discharge, breach of contract or implied covenant, restrictive covenants, wage and hour violations, classifications, reductions in work force, contract negotiations and renegotiations, and any and all forms of labor grievances.
Business litigation is a product of many diverse legal actions, and can be initiated on grounds of antitrust, government contracting, financial forensics, professional liability, RICO conspiracy laws, white-collar crime, compliance and enforcement, class actions, and construction law. It can also address business torts of any and all kinds, including but not limited to fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and interference with economic advantage or contractual relations. Be advised that business tort actions can be undertaken even where a crime has been committed that may be prosecuted.
Whether you are defending against a claim or prosecuting a claim, your law firm should keep you informed in regard to decision-making to make sure that any litigation decisions are aligned with the goals of your business.
Sometimes the injury that caused the litigation may threaten the existence of the business itself. In these kinds of situations, your law firm needs to be willing to work on a contingent fee basis.
