Corporate & Business
Many businesses struggle with legal aspects from customers to employees. Let us help you find your way through the maze.
Although it is possible to run a business without incorporating in Florida, setting up a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) can help protect you and your fellow owners from being personally liable if your business is sued. However, you need an attorney who knows the impact of recent court cases on the extent of protection for different types of business entities, so you make the right choice. We’ll even help you with your annual filings if you need us.
Grivas Law Group, P.A. is experienced in the drafting and revision of a wide array of contracts in industries ranging from healthcare, to minerals, to real estate. Let us put some teeth into agreements, particularly those where you are advancing goods and services, by adding personal guarantees of your customers’ owners, members or officers. When it comes to unnecessary litigation, businesses don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.
You provided goods or services in good faith, and are left with nothing but a stack of accounts receivable. Even in this economy, there has to be a limit to your patience, and you shouldn’t presume that your customers are unable to pay. Grivas Law Group can help you get what you are owed, possibly at no expense to you until we collect for you.
A common tactic by disgruntled former employees is to allege that they were denied adequate compensation for overtime, or that the employers failed to accurately record the hours worked. Some, as a former client of Dr. Grivas found, left the work site for hours at a time without “clocking out” only to blame the employer for having inaccurate time records. Also, you may be in an industry where employees may not be entitled to overtime, or your business may be exempt based on its revenue. Former employees may also suggest that their termination was based on racial, sexual, age or some other unlawful basis. Call Grivas Law Group, P.A. to discuss your options, so you can best resolve matters.
For whatever reason, former customers may make false and disparaging remarks about your company, either verbally (slander) or in writing (libel). Whether you want us to notify the other party of your intent to sue if s/he does not cease and desist (which you must do before suing) or take additional measures, Grivas Law Group, P.A. is willing to help you determine the best approach. Time is of the essence, as the statute of limitations for slander and libel suits is two years from the date of the slanderous statement.
