After all, the law can touch virtually every aspect of a Vero Beach business's operations. Our team focuses on the legal details for our clients, freeing them to concentrate on growth, opportunity, and profitability. 

Business Law Matters We Can Handle

Lulich & Attorneys has years of experience serving as the go-to legal counselor to Vero Beach businesses. We're a full-service law firm with the know-how, talent, and resources to tackle diverse challenges for our commercial clients. Here's a sampling of the projects our business lawyers can handle. 

Forming or Restructuring a Business

Our attorneys take pride in helping entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground in Vero Beach. Careful legal and corporate planning in the early stages of your business lifecycle can pave the way for profitable, friction-free growth.

We understand the hurdles new business owners can face and know how to overcome them while minimizing cost and complication. We aim to make forming your business feel straightforward, efficient, and geared to your specific needs and plans. 

Many clients come to us needing advice about selecting a corporate form for their enterprise. The business form you choose — a traditional corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company (LLC), or other legal structure — can affect how you manage, operate, and raise capital for your enterprise.

Our team can review your circumstances, assist you in selecting the structure that meets your needs, and prepare the necessary documentation and agreements to position your business for long-term success. 

Lulich & Attorneys can also assist companies that have reached a milestone in their business and need to restructure to facilitate new investment or growth. Our team can advise a Vero Beach business owner on, for example, amending an LLC operating agreement to provide for new membership interests or management structures, converting a business from an LLC to a C-corp to facilitate outside investment, or issuing a new class of preferred stock to enable a new funding round.  

Drafting and Negotiating Contracts

Contracts set the terms for how a Vero Beach business operates, what it earns and spends, and whether it flourishes. A favorable contract can be one of your business's most valuable assets. An unfavorable one can threaten its very survival. 

At Lulich & Attorneys, we make it our mission to ensure that any contract your business enters into contains the most favorable terms possible and that you understand its risks and legal implications.

We know how to structure commercial contracts for your benefit, including: 

  • Sales contracts
  • Service contracts
  • Supply agreements
  • Franchise agreements
  • Employment contracts
  • Non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements

Our team can draft form contracts for use in day-to-day operations, advise you about agreements others have asked you to sign (or that you've signed already), prepare the documentation for significant transactions, and negotiate contractual terms with someone else's lawyer. Our input can increase the value of a contract. Just as importantly, it can also steer you away from contact-related pitfalls, loopholes, and legal complications that could hinder your growth or profitability. 

Employment Matters

Lulich & Attorneys can shepherd Vero Beach businesses through various employment-related issues. Among other assignments, our team can draft employment, non-disclosure, and separation agreements, devise workplace policies and procedures, advise on the legal aspects of hiring and firing, and investigate allegations of employee misconduct.

We strive to keep our clients compliant with state and federal labor laws and successful in managing their workforce. 

As any seasoned business leader in Vero Beach knows, sometimes disputes arise with current or former employees that call for immediate legal attention.

At Lulich & Attorneys, we can respond quickly on behalf of clients facing contentious or potentially costly employment-related legal issues. Our team knows how to limit the fallout from an employee's misconduct and protect a business's interests against damaging accusations or lawsuits.

Every business in Vero Beach must comply with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. We help them do so with the minimum possible disruption and expense.

Our lawyers can assist Vero Beach businesses in understanding and complying with their obligations under, for example:  

Business owners in Vero Beach often do not even realize they're subject to a law or regulation until an inspector starts asking questions or they receive an enforcement letter from a local code enforcement agency. A business lawyer from Lulich & Attorneys can review your operations, identify your obligations, and take proactive measures to ensure compliance and minimize the consequences of any alleged violation. 

Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Despite the recent popularity of remote work, many Vero Beach businesses still maintain a vital brick-and-mortar presence in the community. At Lulich & Attorneys, we help area businesses manage the legal side of their real estate portfolios. We can negotiate commercial leases, advise on acquisitions and sales of land or buildings, analyze chains of title, organize and conduct closings, and evaluate a property's legal and regulatory risks. 

Lulich & Attorneys stands out in Vero Beach as a law firm intimately familiar with the local real estate market. Attorney Jordan J. Lulich is a licensed Florida Real Estate Instructor and authorized title insurance claim agent for Old Republic National Title Company. Real estate transactions form a core part of his law practice, giving our firm particularly valuable insight into our business clients' real estate-related needs, risks, and opportunities.

Business leaders can take particular advantage of our local knowledge when planning to relocate or expand their operations in Vero Beach.

Our team has a real estate professional's grasp of the commercial considerations businesses face, in addition to our years of experience in the legal structure and execution of sophisticated real estate transactions. If you are contemplating moving your business location within or to Vero Beach, we encourage you to give us to call to learn how we can help. 

Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets

Vero Beach businesses have intellectual property and trade secrets to protect. Lulich & Attorneys can help them do it. Our team can assist with registering copyrights or trademarks, reviewing your business practices to assess the legal status of your valuable information, and taking legal action to enforce your rights when someone violates them. 

In particular, we invite Vero Beach business owners to consult us about their rights under the Florida Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), a law that protects businesses against misallocation and misuse of commercially valuable information by employees, ex-employees, competitors, and others. The UTSA can be a powerful tool to ensure no one steals your ideas, customers, or valuable data. But you may need to take steps to designate and secure your sensitive commercial information to benefit from the statute's provisions. We can help you take full advantage of it. 

Acquiring, Merging, or Selling a Business

When buying, selling, or combining a business in Vero Beach, you need a lawyer who understands Florida business organizations laws and can oversee the transaction to ensure an outcome that serves your interests. Vero Beach business owners can turn to Lulich & Attorneys for guidance in any such transaction, including acquiring the shares or assets of a business, partnering with a strategic buyer, spinning off a subsidiary, or merging with another enterprise. Our team can draft letters of intent and other preliminary contracts, oversee and conduct due diligence, analyze the structure and sequencing of a transaction, prepare and negotiate final deal documentation, and manage a closing. 

Owners of small and medium-sized businesses in Vero Beach can also come to us at Lulich & Attorneys when they're thinking of winding down their operations and looking toward retirement. Our team can help you explore your options for marketing your business to potential buyers, selling to an employee, or simply closing up shop and liquidating your inventory or other assets. Once you've decided how to proceed, we can take care of the fine points of structuring and carrying out a transaction that serves your needs, including long-term financial and estate-planning considerations.  

We understand that you have a lot on the line when considering the purchase, sale, or restructuring of your business in Vero Beach. Our team of sophisticated legal professionals is with you every step of the way. We make the commercial success of your transaction our singular priority. 

Loans, Investments, and Financial Matters

Raising capital for your Vero Beach business can implicate many complicated, technical legal issues. The Lulich & Attorneys team has them covered. We can advise our business clients on various debt and investment transactions, including secured and unsecured borrowing, marketing and selling equity to institutional or private investors in compliance with securities laws, and liquidating or monetizing assets. 

Our team also advises clients who participate in financial transactions as creditors or investors. We can draft, review, and negotiate loan or investment agreements, record mortgages, perfect security interests, enforce covenants, monitor compliance with representations and warranties, and take other necessary steps to protect our client's financial interests when they put capital at risk. 

Contract Disputes, Collections, and Other Business Litigation

The lawyers at Lulich & Attorneys are ready, willing, and able to go to court to advocate for our business clients' interests. We have to be. While no Vero Beach business owner wants to end up in litigation, it's a fact of commercial life that disputes happen, and sometimes you need a court's help to resolve them. Our Vero Beach business clients need a team in their corner to manage the litigation process and get results in the courtroom if push comes to shove.

We can handle a wide range of business litigation matters. Many arise from disputes over the terms or performance of a contract or collection of a debt. But they can also sometimes involve allegations of fraud, mismanagement, breaches of fiduciary duty, theft of trade secrets, or other wrongdoing that poses a significant threat to a business's reputation and financial health. 

Our lawyers approach business litigation with a commercial mindset. We're prepared to fight and win in court when we have to. But we're also keenly aware that alternative, negotiated resolutions to a dispute may represent the most favorable solutions for our clients. In every case, we strive to achieve litigation outcomes that serve our client's business priorities. Even in the midst of a pitched courtroom battle, we're always on the lookout for ways to ensure that your business thrives.
