Business Sales & Closings

Construction law is a complex field that requires the utilization of contracts, large monetary contributions and numerous parties from varying career fields. As such, construction projects can sometimes be difficult to handle, especially when disputes emerge. There are times when businesses (or construction projects) must be liened, sold or closed due to several factors. If you intend to sale or close out your business/construction project, it is best that you contact an experienced Gainesville attorney for expert legal advice and guidance.

Benefits of Legal Representation in Business Sales & Closures

Construction lawyers are extremely beneficial in business sales and closures. Our construction attorney Michael D. Sechrest, for example, is an experienced litigator who has taken on multi-party claims and has the experience to handle business sales/closures of any size. He has argued against some of the biggest corporations through complex claims and has reached million dollar settlements for clients throughout Florida. This is the type of aggressive representation that your unique case needs.

Here are a few reasons why legal representation is necessary during business sales and closures:

Compliance with Employment & Labor Laws

Most people are unaware of employment and labor laws and how they impact contracts, agreements, labor and construction projects as a whole. With the assistance of an attorney, you can trust that Florida’s laws and policies regarding employment and labor laws will be followed, when looking to sale or close a business/construction project.

Financial Management

Selling and closing businesses/construction projects typically require extensive auditing of funds. All assets and dividends must be examined in order to move forward. For example, all local and federal taxes must be paid; payroll responsibilities must be adhered to; and all lenders and creditors must be notified in order to settle any remaining debt.

Experienced attorneys at Warner, Sechrest & Butts, P.A. can assist you with contacting different parties to collect remaining funds, as well as audit and manage current outgoing and incoming assets. In order to sell and/or close your business/construction project successfully, the financial matters must receive top priority.

Maintain Records

Lastly, lawyers are necessary to assist clients, business owners and other parties with filing documents, handling records, and cancelling permits and licenses. Such tasks require strict deadlines and specific information. With the help of an attorney, you can trust that Florida’s business and construction laws are adhered to so that you do not encounter delays and/or difficulties further down the road.
