As in other areas of law, business law, also referred to as corporate law, is riddled with intricacies that even the most experienced business professionals may find themselves unprepared to maneuver. The business lawyers of Boyer Law Firm have extensive experience dealing with complex legal matters involving small and large businesses throughout Florida for owners of varying experience levels.

Starting Your Business Off on the Right Foot
When starting a Florida business, many crucial factors can impact your business venture’s success or failure. Hiring a business law attorney is as important to every start-up as hiring an accountant.
Our knowledgeable business attorneys in Orlando, Jacksonville, or Miami can assist you with every aspect of business and corporate law matters.
Why Should You Hire a Florida Business Lawyer?
Prevention is Key. Securing counsel from the start can prevent future legal issues, including but not limited to litigation.
Many small businesses will wait until they are sued to hire an attorney. Consequently, by the time a company is served with a lawsuit, it could be too late and be more damaging to the company, financially, reputation, or otherwise.
Hiring a business law attorney to assist you from the start can ensure that you form the correct type of business entity, ensure that procedures are put into place to avoid lawsuits, protect the owners’ personal assets, create contracts, and much more.
Our Florida business law attorneys in Orlando, Jacksonville, and Miami, can guide you through the practical and legal obligations of running a business, help you get ahead in the corporate world, and guide and protect you each step of the way.
Obtaining Counsel Now Can Prevent Future Litigation
You may feel litigation can help you reach your legal objective when you can’t afford flexibility. Businesses can avoid disputes altogether with the guidance of our attorneys in essential business decisions and contracts. However, when litigation is inevitable, you can be confident that our lawyers are equally prepared to represent your interests to the courtroom tenaciously.
Minimize Your Exposure to Liability with Our Guidance
Risk is a necessary part of business, but any business owner knows some risks are unnecessary. In many cases, businesses unwittingly generate liability by operating with deficiently drafted documents. For example, companies may feel they can reduce startup costs by using online samples of shareholder, partnership, and operating agreements or entering into contracts with employees, vendors, and customers with generic contracts. Therefore, these documents are not tailored to the company’s unique needs. These types of situations present inadequate protection from contract disputes. Our Florida business lawyers can even help uncover liability weaknesses and loopholes you may never have even detected.
Why accept unnecessary risk with such an important investment as your business, your livelihood?
We can assess and mitigate your risk in matters such as the following and more:
- All Contracts
- Business formation
- Business dissolution
- Partnership disputes
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Corporate reorganization
- Employment and labor law compliance
- Compliance with other government regulations
- Commercial lease negotiation, renegotiation, and evictions

No more thumbing through the yellow pages, or throwing a dart at the board with an internet search.
No More Searching the Internet for Forms & Documents
How many times have you needed a form or document and turned to a quick Google search? Or purchased general software or books to get semi-legal documents?
Too many times, these documents and forms are drafted for someone else’s business. They are for someone else’s deal, project and circumstances.
These poorly drafted or sloppy business documents create far more problems than they are worth.
- Documents are written in another state or country and may leave you vulnerable and unprotected.
- They are sloppy and can leave a bad impression on clients, prospects and employees.
- Can show a lack of experience and lack of qualifications for prospective clients.
Your job is to be the expert at your business, not try to to be an attorney. Protect what you have worked so hard to build.
