Top Quality Legal Advice for Your Florida Business

At Michael L. Feinstein, P.A., we provide sophisticated counsel to corporate and other businesses throughout the State of Florida. We work with businesses at all stages of development to ensure that business owners’ rights are protected and that business owners make legal decisions that are in their best interests.

In the initial stages, we counsel business clients on the advantage of the different business forms and help them select the form that meets their needs. Some people make the decision for tax reasons and others for liability reasons. In any case, our attorneys are here to advise you of the advantages and disadvantages of both, and together we can help meet your goals, desires and objectives. Our attorneys can set up:

    • Sole Proprietorships
    • General and Limited Partnerships
    • Subchapter S or C Corporations
    • Non-profit Corporations
    • Limited Liability Enterprises (LLCs and LLPs)

 

Once a client selects a business form, we prepare and file all the necessary documents to establish the business as a legal entity under the laws of the state. Our attorneys do more than merely file your Articles of Incorporation, we can:

    • Prepare your Organizational Minutes
