Top Tips for Choosing the Right Business Attorney

May 30, 2019

This infographic titled ‘4 Steps in Choosing the Right Attorney for Your Business’ explains why you need a good attorney and how you can find the right one. His services will ensure that you are able to carry out business functions, such as drafting business proposals, carefully reviewing contracts, and more.

You will need to evaluate a potential business attorney on several aspects. These aspects can cover his expertise, qualifications, past performance, and his approach towards cases in general. How he organizes his practice can also tell you a lot about him. You should feel comfortable talking to him, for him to be the best person for the job.

Here’s how you can get started

  • Evaluate your needs: Determine why you need a business attorney. Do you need an attorney to draft contracts, evaluate or agreements before signing? Do you need an attorney to work on the legal aspects of a forthcoming association?
  • Prepare a questionnaire: Prepare a set of questions based upon your specific requirements. These questions can also work towards assessing the qualifications and experience of the shortlisted candidates.
  • Research their past performance: This is necessary for making sure that your attorney is indeed the right person to represent your case.
  • Reviews from other attorneys: Taking reviews about an attorney from other attorneys in the same domain can get you a lot of information about his skill and ability. You can obtain these reviews in person as well over the internet.

Florida Real Estate Litigation: Landlord Remedies in Commercial Leases

May 2, 2019

By:  Kate Feingold, Esq.

When tenants breach a commerical lease agreement, Florida law provides landlords with three options:

  1. Consider the lease terminated and resume possession of the premises for the landlord’s own purposes (i.e., for the “landlord’s account”);
  1. Hold possession of the premises for the “tenant’s account” and seek general damages for any amount not recovered by re-renting the premises;
  1. Take no immediate action but, rather, wait to sue the tenant as future rent becomes due, or for an accelerated amount if allowed under the lease agreement.
