Zinzow Law

Commercial & Business Law

Our attorneys understand business because they are all business owners.

Whether it is Construction, Real Estate, Equine, or General Business, our team of attorneys approach your individual situation with your business success as our number one priority. Limiting business liability and planning for the growth of your business as well as addressing potential ownership changes over time are important aspects of business planning. Our lawyers are experienced in all phases of business planning, and can assist you in selecting the most appropriate business form, and can advise you on how to avoid problems as partners, families, and business goals change.

Our attorneys draft the documents necessary for establishing a Florida corporation, and can advise you on the various options available under the Florida Business Corporations Act. Additionally, our attorneys act as registered agents for the corporations they represent. We also assist the principals in compliance issues and provide advice and assistance regarding changing legal requirements. For closely held and family owned corporations, proper business planning often involves good estate planning; we team with CPA’s, Tax attorneys, and Trust & Estate Planning attorneys to provide you with a full range of services.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with all types of partnerships and corporations.  Careful and thoughtful planning is necessary to draft operating agreements, partnership agreements, and membership agreements that accomplish your goals and address future contingencies and changes.  Our lawyers can draft membership agreements and buy-sell agreements that meet the goals of the business and its members.

Partnerships and sole proprietorships carry with them special liability concerns that are important to understand.  Our attorneys can advise clients on the risks and benefits of these business structures and assist in changing the business structure to achieve your goals.

Businesses operating in Florida face a variety of challenges that require legal counsel. Whether you are starting a business, expanding your current enterprise, or downsizing, our lawyers can help accomplish your objectives. We have helped clients with stock purchase agreements, asset purchases, mergers, real estate acquisitions, joint ventures, shareholder disputes, and dissolutions.  In addition, we have a wealth of experience in matters unique to the State of Florida, and enjoy helping clients avoid costly errors in those areas.
