Melbourne Transactional Lawyer
Transactions are the lifeblood of Melbourne businesses, which rely on contracts, relationships, and documents to thrive in an environment that is constantly changing. Without the proper documentation in place, you open your business up to significant risk. Plus, unless you have a solid legal background, you cannot properly protect your interests in negotiations with other companies.
Our Melbourne transactional lawyers at de Beaubien, Simmons, Knight, Mantzaris & Neal, LLP have more than 40 years of combined experience representing the interests of Florida businesses and stakeholders. We have assisted companies of all sizes with the transactions that are central to successful operations, from negotiating and drafting contracts to watching out for regulatory issues. Our transactional lawyers are dedicated to providing each client with custom-tailored legal services, just as your own in-house counsel would do.
New Business Structuring
Choosing the business formation that best suits the needs of your company is an important threshold issue that has profound implications for your future success. After reviewing your business objectives, we can explain your options, and tell you how each relates to personal liability, taxes, management, business succession, and other legal issues. Our transactional attorneys will also handle the filing process with the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations, as well as the legal requirements for Brevard County and the City of Melbourne.
However, our lawyers at de Beaubien, Simmons, Knight, Mantzaris & Neal, LLP know that a proper foundation for your company does not end with filing the proper documents. We can consult with you regarding business planning, and we are happy to offer ongoing advice in such areas as:
- Shareholders and partnership agreements;
- Venture capital and financing;
- Corporate governance;
- Employment, labor, and wage issues;
- Contract negotiations;
- Drafting and review of important agreements;
- Structuring relationships with vendors and third parties; and,
- Many more.
When working with you on transactional matters, our team is always mindful of dispute avoidance. We strive to steer clear of conflicts that could lead to litigation, but we are ready to represent your interests in arbitration, mediation, or in court.
