Fort Lauderdale Business Attorneys Handle:

Business Formation and Agreements

Our business formations & agreement attorneys advise clients each step of the business start-up process. Our attorneys will work to ensure that all legal bases are covered for business formation and agreements. Choosing the proper corporate structure is a crucial variable that carries significant weight throughout the duration of your business. The corporate structure you choose will affect the dynamics of taxation at local, state and federal levels, and will also shape the scope of legal liability to which you are personally exposed. Structuring your business without comprehending the legal ramifications of each option can put you behind the eight ball before your shingles even go up. Once we assist you in choosing an appropriate corporate structure – whether it be a limited liability company or an s-corporation – our attorneys can guide and explain how operating agreements, bylaws, articles of incorporation and partnership agreements can protect you from financial liabilities in the event that disputes among shareholders arise, or, in the extreme case, your business becomes insolvent.

Oppenheim Law represents and advises clients regarding all aspects of business formation including:

  • C-corporations
  • S-corporations
  • Limited liability companies
  • Partnerships
  • Sole proprietorships
  • Customized preparation of important corporate related documents, such as:
    • Articles of Incorporation (Corporations) or Articles of Organization (LLCs)
    • Bylaws
    • Shareholder Agreements
    • Operating Agreements
    • Corporate Resolutions
    • Employment Agreements
    • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Fiduciary responsibilities

Business Contracts

Our firm has extensive experience in drafting, enforcing, and litigating business agreements and contracts. For many companies and industries, being able to negotiate and formulate air-tight contracts is a key asset. Having an experienced litigation team on your side to help enforce contracts or defend contractual claims is a priority. Whether you are attempting to form an agreement, renegotiate a contract or want to terminate a relationship, our team of attorneys at Oppenheim Law provide sound business judgment and experience, and will advise you effectively. We strategically handle contractual issues that arise in your business.

Purchase and Sale of Business

Representation for Business Buyers

For individuals or entities pursuing the acquisition of a business, having competent, experienced legal counsel by your side will prove to be one of the most valuable investments you will make during the acquisition process. Whether the acquisition is an asset purchase, stock purchase or merger, when you retain Oppenheim Law to represent you in the transaction, you are retaining a team of attorneys with a broad range of expertise in business valuation, due diligence, and negotiation. Our Firm also regularly utilizes the assistance of forensic certified public accountants to cross-verify our findings and ensure that our clients are receiving only the most reliable financial information.

When a client is targeting an acquisition, a key objective that our Firm aggressively pursues is to shed light into the business’s internal structure and operations, providing you with full transparency about the business. A business may look healthy from the outside, but only a thorough and competent performance of due diligence will provide our clients with information needed to place an accurate valuation on the target business. By having Oppenheim Law on your side, you will be guided far from pitfalls that are all too often associated with the acquisition of a business.

Our team is experienced in assisting companies structurally prepare for buyouts and mergers.

Outsourced In-House Counsel Services

We recognize that most business owners and entrepreneurs need a trusted legal advisor to help grow their business. A myriad of legal issues arise daily including, but not limited to, hiring and firing of an employee, review of vendor and customer contracts, renewal of insurance, and asset acquisition (i.e., purchase and sale agreements) as well as commercial disputes that, if handled properly, will not become too adversarial.

We act as your concierge counsellors, providing you with immediate access to our highly-qualified team of attorneys at an affordable monthly rate. This way you can comfortably budget your legal expenses for the year and rely upon our over 75 years of legal experience. Our Concierge Counsellor Program eliminates the “sticker shock” of attorney fees while providing you with the attention, experience, and responsiveness you deserve.

Thus, by acting as your outsourced in-house counsel, we take the unwarranted stress away from you as business owners and entrepreneurs so that you can do what you do best: concentrate on growing your own business.

Many businesses require continuing legal advice from an experienced attorney to assist with inquiries that arise from the day-to-day operations of a business. However, most businesses do not require a full time in-house counsel. Oftentimes issues arise that demand competent legal advice on short notice from an attorney who knows the business. Oppenheim Law offers general corporate counsel services where we learn your business culture and operations early on and allow you the convenience and flexibility of on-demand general counsel services. From reviewing and drafting contracts, to litigation, Oppenheim Law is well-equipped to handle all of your business disputes. As your outside general corporate counsel, Oppenheim Law will seamlessly step in to handle your legal disputes, allowing you to continue your business operations.
