Entity Formation and Organizational Representation

Rossway Swan’s business and corporate attorneys represent clients ranging from startup ventures to global companies in all organizational and transactional matters.

Protecting your business starts from the very beginning. At Rossway Swan, our business and corporate attorneys focus on delivering practical legal solutions that help our clients achieve commercial success and longevity. We provide business-oriented legal counsel, and our lawyers are dedicated to structuring innovative solutions that simplify complex issues without getting in the way of our clients’ immediate or long-term goals.

From choice-of-entity considerations to negotiating complex mergers and acquisitions, every stage of the business life-cycle has legal implications. The choices you make now could affect everything from your ability to secure funding to the company owners’ personal liability in the event of litigation. We’ve seen it all, and we use our experience to help clients make informed decisions while providing the foundations on which to build their success.

Formation and Representation of all Corporate Entities

Forming a new business starts with selecting the entity structure that makes the most sense given your business plan, intended organizational structure and funding goals. Tax and liability considerations will often counsel in favor of a particular entity form as well. Should you form a corporation, partnership, limited liability company (LLC) or other special-purpose entity? Should you form your entity in Florida or another state? We can help you weigh your options and then prepare all of the documentation necessary to properly form your new entity.

Not-For-Profit Entity Representation and Formation

Forming a not-for-profit entity involves many of the same considerations involved in forming a for-profit business; however, there are additional issues you will need to address as well. Our attorneys can walk you through the process of establishing and documenting your tax exemption eligibility, and we can give you the tools you need to ensure that your not-for-profit entity retains its tax-exempt status.

Preparation of Shareholder Agreements and all Corporate Records and Transactions

Beyond filing organizational documents with the appropriate state authority, establishing a new business in Florida requires preparation of a number of other documents that will help formalize your officers’ and directors’ rights and responsibilities and address the various other issues that are inherent in running a successful company. Florida businesses must satisfy ongoing recordkeeping requirements as well, with failure to keep appropriate records having the potential to expose individual owners to personal liability.

Our business lawyers can prepare all of the documentation your company needs now and in the future, including:

  • Bylaws
  • Meeting Minutes
  • Resolutions
  • Shareholder Agreements

At Rossway Swan, we also have extensive experience representing clients in commercial contract negotiations, mergers, acquisitions and other complex business transactions. Our attorneys rely on decades of experience to draft agreements and negotiate terms that protect our clients’ interests while meeting the strict deadlines that business demands.
