Business and Transactional Law
Stack Fernandez Anderson & Harris, P.A. offers a range of corporate and transactional legal services, including the formation of Florida corporations, limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, and limited partnerships, the negotiation and documentation of purchase and sale agreements, asset sales, stock purchase agreements, the preparation of customary corporate documents (including shareholder, employment, non-competition, and confidentiality agreements), and the resolution of disputes among shareholders and members or between corporations and third parties. The firm also negotiates contracts for our clients involved in the entertainment and related industries.
The firm can assist in the preparation of articles of incorporation or organization, shareholder agreements, operating agreements, by-laws, and resolutions. The firm can also assist with the preparation of employment agreements, including non-competition and confidentiality provisions. Given the firm’s extensive experience in litigating issues arising out such agreements, the firm is in a unique position to draft the agreements from a “litigator’s perspective” and provide the client with the maximum protection. If the time should come when a client needs to sell or acquire a business, the firm can assist in the negotiation and documentation of the necessary agreement to consummate the transaction.
The firm has substantial experience in the prosecution, defense and resolution of claims concerning the violation of employment agreements, non-competition agreements, confidentiality agreements, and trade secret disputes. If litigation is warranted, the firm will quickly move to preserve and protect a client’s rights and assets, including the prosecution of claims to obtain injunctive relief from the courts. The firm routinely represents corporations and employees as plaintiffs and defendants.
To the extent that a business is experiencing disputes between or among shareholders or equity holders, the firm is also experienced in litigating “corporate divorces,” and therefore can provide invaluable expertise in advising a shareholder as to the shareholder’s rights and responsibilities, and litigating that shareholder’s rights if an amicable resolution with the other shareholders cannot be reached.
At times, disputes might arise between the corporation and third parties. As commercial litigators, the firm has significant experience in litigating contractual disputes, intellectual property disputes, and business torts, such as tortious interference, unfair and deceptive trade practices, unfair competition, and trade name infringement.
