Corporate Lawyers and Business Law Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Florida law provides for the formation of a multitude of different corporate entities. Generally, a corporation is incorporated for any legal purpose by one or more people and, upon incorporation, attains separate legal existence – that of a natural person. The corporation can buy or sell any property, sue and be sued, and engage in a wide-variety of activities.
In Florida, a corporation comes into existence by filing “Articles of Incorporation.” This is filed with the Secretary of the State and contains the corporate name, the number of authorized shares to issue, a brief statement of the character of business carried out by the corporation, the names and addresses of the directors, and the name and addresses of the incorporators.
But filing the Articles of Incorporation and getting your company formed are just the beginning. Company’s should also appoint a board of directors, decide on corporate bylaws, and ensure compliance with a number of local, state, and federal laws. The company’s bylaws set forth internal rules and procedures for the corporation, including the existence and responsibilities of corporate offices, the size of the board of directors, the manner and term of their election, how and when board and shareholder meetings will be held, who may call meetings, and how the board of directors will function.
As you can imagine, deciding upon which corporate structure to choose and how to properly incorporate your business are matters of great importance. After making that decision, executing the plan can be even more difficult. Retaining the right legal partner not only makes the whole process smoother but also ensures a level of certainty that is invaluable to new and even seasoned business owners.
