Business Formation Process

We guide you through each step of the business formation process:

1. Entity Selection

We help you determine the most suitable legal structure for your business, considering factors such as liability protection, tax implications, and management flexibility. Options include LLCs, corporations (S-corp or C-corp), partnerships, and sole proprietorships.

2. Name Availability and Registration

We’ll help you conduct a name search to ensure your desired business name is available and meets Florida naming requirements. We then handle the registration of your business name with the state.

3. Filing Formation Documents

We prepare and file all necessary formation documents with the Florida Division of Corporations, ensuring accuracy and compliance with state regulations. These documents may include articles of incorporation for corporations or articles of organization for LLCs.

4. Obtaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) and Licenses

We’ll help you obtain an EIN from the IRS, which is required for completing taxes and hiring employees. Additionally, we guide you through the process of obtaining any necessary business licenses and permits required for your specific industry and location.

5. Drafting Internal Agreements

For LLCs and corporations, we draft essential internal agreements, such as operating agreements or shareholder agreements, outlining ownership interests, management structure, voting rights, and other crucial provisions.

6. Compliance and Ongoing Support

We provide guidance on maintaining compliance with Florida business regulations, including annual report filings, corporate formalities, and other legal requirements. We offer ongoing support to address any questions or challenges that may arise as your business grows and evolves.

Why Do You Need a Business Formation Lawyer?

A skilled business formation lawyer can be your invaluable partner in developing a strategic start for your venture. Here's why seeking legal assistance is crucial:

Choosing the Right Structure

Selecting the appropriate legal structure is a critical decision with significant legal and tax implications. A business formation lawyer can assess your specific needs and goals, guiding you toward the structure that best aligns with your long-term vision and minimizes potential risks and liabilities.

Compliance with Florida Law

Florida has specific regulations governing business formation and operation. A lawyer makes sure your business complies with all applicable laws, including filing requirements, licensing, permits, and ongoing compliance obligations, avoiding potential penalties and legal challenges.

Drafting Essential Agreements

Whether it's an operating agreement for an LLC or a shareholder agreement for a corporation, a lawyer will draft comprehensive internal agreements that clearly define ownership interests, management structure, voting rights, and dispute resolution mechanisms, preventing future conflicts and protecting your interests.

Protecting Intellectual Property

Safeguarding your intellectual property, such as trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, is vital for your company's success. A business formation lawyer can assist with trademark and copyright registration, drafting non-disclosure agreements, and implementing strategies to protect your valuable assets.

Minimizing Risks and Liabilities

A lawyer helps identify and mitigate potential legal risks involved in your business operations, contracts, and employment practices, reducing your exposure to lawsuits and liabilities.

Why Choose Us as Your Buffalo Business Attorneyshandshake

Areas We Serve

We proudly serve businesses across New York and Florida. Below, you'll find some of the key locations where we've helped businesses thrive.




Do I need to register my business name as a trademark?

Registering your business name as a trademark is not always necessary, but it offers valuable protection for your brand identity. A registered trademark grants you exclusive rights to use your business name in connection with your goods or services, preventing others from using a similar name that could cause confusion in the marketplace. 

A skilled business lawyer can advise you on whether trademark registration is appropriate for your business and guide you through the process.

What does it cost to form a business in Miami?

The cost of business formation in Miami varies depending on factors such as the chosen entity type, filing fees with the state, legal fees, and any necessary licenses or permits. State filing fees for LLCs and corporations typically range from $100 to $150. Legal fees will vary based on the complexity of your formation needs and the level of assistance required. 

Lawyer For Business provides transparent fee structures, and we will discuss the expected costs upfront during your initial consultation.

How long does the business formation process take?

The timeline for business formation in Miami can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of your business structure, the chosen entity type, and the efficiency of state processing times.

What are the ongoing legal requirements for businesses in Miami?

Once your business is formed, there are ongoing legal requirements to maintain compliance and good standing. These may include annual report filings with the state, maintaining corporate formalities, such as holding meetings and keeping records, adhering to employment laws and tax regulations, and renewing any necessary licenses or permits.

Can I change my business structure after formation?

Yes, it is possible to change your business structure after formation, although the process can be complex and may involve legal and tax implications. For example, you may choose to convert from a sole proprietorship to an LLC or from an LLC to a corporation as your business grows and evolves.
