Common Areas of Question for Florida Businesses
Equipment Lease Agreements
Crucial to many business markets, your business needs access to the latest technology without being pinned into long-term commitments. Block and Scarpa will draft-and-sign lease agreements that capture the intent of each party accurately and clearly state the agreed-upon terms and conditions that were discussed between parties. We also prepare provisions that may be desirable to add to your agreement, such as addressing illegal use of equipment or issues regarding a warranty of merchantability.
Necessary for many young or expanding businesses, a loan is a well-known way to build capital. Due to the requirement to pay back a loan regardless of the company’s success, it is important to have a complete understanding of all the terms and conditions attached to a loan.
Non-Compete or Severance Agreements
In the most competitive of marketplaces, non-compete and severance agreements are often crucial to the maintenance of a business’ success. These may be signed by employees at the beginning, middle or end of an employment relationship. A non-compete agreement places limitations on how an employee may use the employer’s customers, and trade information or employees after obtaining or continuing an employment relationship with another employer. Severance agreements are signed at the end of an employment relationship, typically providing financial benefits in exchange for the employee signing a non-compete or waiving any claims against the employer.
If your business is involved in the manufacture, distribution or retail of goods, a supplier agreement is an absolute necessity. Block & Scarpa will ensure the right type of contract is employed, review the essential parts of the contract, and guide you regarding the applicability of any laws and statutes related to your business contract.
