Miami Business Contracts Attorney

When business clients need help from a South Miami business attorney, I use my years of experience to help with their issues concerning contracts or the sale of a business in Florida. Contact Drew Sheridan, P.A., to see if I can put this experience to work for you.

I help my clients with many different types of contracts, including:

  • Employment agreements
  • International business agreements
  • Sale of business agreements (both buyers and sellers)
  • Sale of asset agreements
  • Agreements for transactions involving collateral, loans or mortgages

Many of my clients need assistance with the process of buying or selling small businesses. When these clients buy or sell businesses such as coffee shops, restaurants or beauty salons, I am able to help them:

  • Understand the procedure for the sale of a business
  • Draft a contract for the sale
  • Draft an employment agreement, if the seller is going to continue operating the business for the buyer
  • Understand the due diligence period, which gives the buyer time to:
    • Make sure all license requirements are met
    • Check that the bills of the business are paid and up to date
    • Check that any licenses are transferable
    • Ensure zoning requirements are met
    • Deal with the health department (if applicable)
    • Ensure there are no judgments or liens against the seller or the property
    • Negotiate a transfer of the lease, if the property is leased and not owned

Miami Asset Protection Lawyer

In addition to my work with contracts and the sale of businesses, I create entities that serve as asset protection for my clients. Some examples include:

  • Family limited partnerships (FLPs)
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Trusts

When marriage is on the horizon, I also draft prenuptial agreements (commonly called prenups) for my clients to protect their assets in the case of divorce.

My office in Miami is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments outside of these hours are available upon request. For a free initial consultation with a lawyer about your business law needs, call 305-596-3368 or contact me via my online form. Se habla español.
