Tampa Business Litigation Attorneys / Tampa Corporate Attorney

Tampa Corporate Attorney

Corporations are their own distinct legal entities that are entirely separate from the owners of the business. Our Tampa corporate attorney represents corporations with regard to operations, formations, reorganizations, the duties and rights of shareholders and managements, mergers and acquisitions, finance, and other legal issues that govern corporations.

Corporate Restructuring and Reorganization

Corporations sometimes need to reorganize business activities or change their business structure due to a merger, acquisition, or an investment. A corporate lawyer can help the owners, shareholders, and management team throughout the reorganizations process. Depending on the facts of a case, one company may have to be dissolved so an entirely new one can be formed. In some instances, it is more practical to change an existing company into a holding company, reorganizing multiple new separate units. In others, a new holding company must be created.

Legal Audits

Contrary to what many people think, Tampa corporate attorneys do not always focus on litigation and lawsuits. Instead, a lot of the work they do actually helps companies avoid costly lawsuits. As with financial audits, a legal audit will thoroughly review specific areas of the activities of the corporation to ensure everything is properly organized.

Legal audits can uncover non-compliance matters that could cost the company expensive fines, high-risk policies and procedures that can put the corporation at risk, intellectual property assets that are not being utilized, and more. Successful companies such as corporations regularly conduct legal audits to ensure that unexpected issues do not derail the company, or its profits.

Corporate Governance

One of the most important aspects of running a successful corporation is to ensure all shareholders are in compliance. Corporations often have complex decision-making processes that involve the board of directors, the management team, and shareholders. Due to this, it is not uncommon for issues involving corporate governance to arise.

A corporate attorney can represent a group of shareholders and attempt to resolve the dispute regarding who is authorized to make certain decisions. Issues involving corporate governance are often resolved through negotiation, communication, and the amendment of the corporate charter. Still, in some cases litigation is the only resolution to the issue.

Tax Planning

Effective tax planning is important for long-term success. A corporate attorney can advise on how to maximize the tax benefits of certain expenditures, how to reduce the tax burden of the corporation, and work to ensure that tax strategies are documented properly and that they comply with the law.
