We advise clients with respect to all types of business organizations, including corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.
For clients entering into new business enterprises, as well as those seeking to refine existing organizations, we provide advice concerning the selection of the appropriate business entity; drafting shareholder agreements, employment contracts and buy-sell agreements; developing business succession plans; and analyzing the interrelationship of the business plan with the owner’s estate plan.
Because of our substantial estate planning practice, we frequently counsel individuals in the transfer of closely held businesses to the client’s children and other family members, as well as the formation of business entities to preserve and protect family wealth. In particular, we have formed many family limited partnerships, limited liability companies and S corporations.
A Multi-Jurisdictional Approach
We are frequently involved in the formation of business entities organized outside of Florida, recognizing the importance of selecting the jurisdiction which best suits the client’s tax, business and estate planning needs.
