The Importance of Having an Experienced Business Law Attorney

The practice of business law is made up of many complex and diverse types of legal disciplines including but not limited to: commercial law, construction law, HOA and COA association representation, real estate law, commercial estate and succession planning, and appellate law. There are also 2 distinct commercial law processes, as in transactional business law services involving advice and counsel on business formations, contract drafting and review, entity selection, employee agreements, non-compete agreements, and contract negotiation. The second type of business law services has to do with litigation services and dispute resolution for both plaintiffs, (bringing actions against a business or individual) and for defendants, defending, owner(s) principles or their business against a legal action brought forth by another party, partner, vendor, supplier or customer.

A business that has constructed the right legal framework is less likely to run into trouble over the contracts it enters into and the contracts it has to defend when someone or something goes awry. It takes legal knowledge and experience to guide a business through all aspects of its intended journey of growth and profitability, heading off the bumps along the way that most businesses will incur during their life cycle. For many business startups especially where there are partners, officers, or financial contributors involved, having durable operating agreements defining roles and responsibilities can give a clear direction to manage the day to day operations. These processes will help to avoid conflict and over time will build trust helping to navigate the business effectively. In many cases principles, partners, shareholders, and executives believe that a shared vision and open communication will help to solve most problems that arise over time. But verbal agreements with the lack of tangible documents are no guarantee problems incurred will be resolved. At Heekin Law, P.A. our lead business law attorney in Jacksonville Fl, Geoff Heekin understands that a proactive approach in all aspects of a business’s formation will make the difference between resolving conflict or becoming a victim of it. Outlining roles, rules, and procedures in many instances propagates success from mistakes made by stewards of the business whose responsibility should be its welfare.
