BUSINESS BOTH FOR PROFIT & NOT FOR PROFIT

Business Law Florida

Whether you're looking to set up, manage, protect, grow or sell a business, Legal Solutions Group has the knowledge and resources you need to build a strong, focused and compliant business.

We use a team approach aimed at deploying the right people with exactly the skill-set you need to help with the unique challenges your business is facing, on either an ongoing or 'project' basis. Many of our legal services people have served more than 30 years in the world of business, both corporate and not for profit, and have leadership positions at Chambers' of Commerce and other business and civic organizations.

As a group, we have mostly provided legal services for businesses in the service and hospitality industries, but all of us at Legal Solutions Group are part of a strong network of community professionals, giving each of our team the resources they need to perform to the highest standards, whatever the industry.

We provide the following legal services:

Contracts & Transactions – in Plain Language

The first rule in business agreements is 'get it in writing,' and we will ensure that all parties are protected by getting those all-important contracts down in black and white. But as Legal Solutions Group comprises both business people and licensed attorneys, we don't construct contracts in obscure “legalese” but in clear, unambiguous language that is simple for everyone involved to understand.

Our team of licensed corporate law attorneys will help you review your current situation and negotiate, draft, revise and finalize all of your short-term and long-term contracts, maximizing the benefits and mitigating the inevitable risks involved in any legal agreement.

We can help you with any business related contractual agreement, but some of the more common documents we handle include:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Operating Agreements
  • Construction Contracts and Sub-contracting Agreements
  • Insurance Documents
  • Financing and Bonding Agreements
  • Mortgages
  • Promissory Notes
  • Employment Contracts and Employees' Handbook
  • Non-Compete Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Trademarks, Patents and Copyright Agreements
  • Social Media and Digital Media Contracts

Personalized Strategic Planning

Legal Solutions Group works closely with our clients at a strategic level, helping the management team to define their goals and ensure the collective focus needed to succeed. We aim at both the global, conceptual level and the more hands-on tactical planning approach, and can also coach your senior leadership team on effective planning principles.

Although businesses at any stage of their growth can benefit from this high-level business consultancy, the advantages become more pronounced as the business expands in size and business volume.

With decades of experience on the boards of corporations and not-for-profits, Legal Solutions Group is ideally placed to advise you on the most direct route to your goals and we can schedule regular progress meetings to ensure you are on target and taking the appropriate actions to build your business.

Some other areas of business planning and corporate law compliance we can help you with include:

  • Business Plans
  • Marketing Strategies
  • Branding
  • Competitor Analysis
  • Mastermind Groups

Human Resources Management

Since the liberating effect of technology, the Human Resources department has evolved over recent years. Forward-thinking companies understand that the modern HR department provides more than transactional functions and is increasingly at the forefront of company strategy.

Legal Solutions Group works with a number of senior SPHR-certified human resources specialists with experience in numerous companies and industries. They can ensure your HR department is firing on all cylinders and taking an active role in areas such as:

  • Leadership Design
  • Compensation Planning
  • Internal Marketing
  • Federal and State Law Compliance (FMLA etc.)
  • Maintaining a Drug-Free Workplace
  • Harassment and Discrimination

We can assist you in employing results-focused strategies using a blend of tried and tested methods and cutting-edge, innovative thinking to get the most out of your most valuable asset.

New Economy; New Challenges

Many of the challenges faced by modern businesses and not-for-profits simply didn't exist a decade ago. Social media and digital media corporate law are two areas that can trip the unprepared business, leading to significant financial losses, while uncertainty about the climate, especially in a State such as Florida, impacts upon risk management strategies. We can work with you on these contemporary issues

Respecting and protecting privacy is another area that will test all corporate law firms and their clients in the near future with the spread of social media and new technologies such as airborne video surveillance (e.g. drones) and RF identification chips.

Legal Solutions Group is already working with our clients on preparing and future-proofing their businesses for these new challenges and those just appearing over the horizon.

Considerate Fee Structure

Legal Solutions Group is committed to working with our clients in the way which suits their business needs, and that includes how we get paid. Some organizations working with corporate lawyers find themselves hamstrung by hourly rates when a flat rate free would have been more cost-effective. On the other hand, some of our clients prefer to work within a traditional hourly billing framework.

Talk to us about your preferred payment arrangement and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. We can guarantee our pricing will be clear and straightforward with no hidden surprises – and no compromise on the quality of your legal services.
