Small Business
Partnering with small business owners

According the the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses provide 55% of all jobs and 66% of all net new jobs since the 1970s. Small business is a part of the fabric of America. Live Oak Law, PLLC recognizes the importance of small, locally owned businesses and we would be remiss in our mission of serving consumers if we did not also serve the small businesses that make up our community. Fortunately we have had the privilege of assisting small businesses in a variety of contexts, including the following:

  1. Business Formation – Depending upon the makeup of your business and objectives, there a number of options for the way you choose to organize your business. The options include sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability partnership (LLP), corporation, limited liability corporation (LLC), amongst other forms of ownership. Which option you choose has a bearing on your personal exposure to liability and how revenue is treated for tax purposes.
  2. Contract Drafting and Review – Every business enters into agreements. Whether it is with its clients and customers, or vendors and the like, these agreements are preferably written and entered into with a full understanding of the legal obligations imposed upon all parties to the agreement. Services we often provide falling into this category include reviewing an agreement that has already been entered into and potentially breached, drafting contracts or paperwork that will be used in the business or reviewing a contract’s terms prior to signing it.
  3. Business Litigation – Preferably, the expense and unpredictability of litigation is avoided when possible. However, there are times where it becomes necessary for a business to litigate, whether the business is seeking relief or responding to a lawsuit. There are a litany of different civil causes of action involving businesses and the applicable choice depends on the relief being sought or the offending behavior.

If you have legal questions related to your small business, contact us at 321-765 9109 or email us at and we would be happy to discuss those with you.
