Business Law

Most large corporations have an “in-house counsel,” a lawyer that the executives regularly turn to for advice and legal expertise. Regardless of whether you run a small, medium or large business, retaining a costly in-house counsel may not be in your budget. Retaining Marsicano + Leyva PLLC as your business attorneys or corporate lawyers is the next best thing as they can serve as your affordable general counsel.

We handle entity registration, articles of incorporation, bylaws, minutes, operating agreements and all other aspects of business formation.
  • - Professional associations:
    Organizations of professionals — such as architects, accountants, attorneys and physicians — may be subject to certain licensing restrictions that impact business entity formation. We are experienced at addressing these issues.
  • - Commercial Contracts:
    We are experienced at drafting and negotiating sophisticated commercial contracts on behalf of business clients.
  • - Employment contracts:
    Florida and federal law place constraints on the provisions that may be included in employment contracts. We draft and review contracts and employee manuals to meet employers' needs while ensuring compliance with the law.
  • - Business dissolution:
    When the owners of a business no longer wish to do business together, we handle the dissolution of the entity and distribution of assets that requires careful attention from lawyers who are prepared to handle any disputes that may arise.
