- Partnership Agreements

When going into business with another person or entity, the partnership agreement outlines the terms of the relationship. Amongst other things, It covers capital contributions, profits and losses, dissociation and admission of additional partners to the venture.

- Limited Liability Company Operating Agreements

A form of partnership agreement that specifically covers limited liability companies. The terms of this agreement must be carefully negotiated and implemented so as to ensure the most effective execution of the LLC’s business operation. Florida has recently revised its Uniform Limited Liability Act. Make sure your company is up to date with all the newest changes in the law.

- Shareholder Agreements

This Agreement covers the relationship between the shareholders of a corporation. It governs the purchase and sale of stock, the valuation of interests and the admission of additional shareholders. Ultimately, the Shareholder Agreement sets the protocol for shareholder relations, a very important document that cannot be overlooked.

- Licensing Agreements:

When a business owns an asset and another person or entity wishes to license that asset, whether tangible or intangible intellectual property, the License Agreement governs the terms of the license granted to the licensee by the asset owner. This agreement outlines the compensation paid by the licensee and the terms of the licensee’s use of the asset or technology. The License Agreement is just as much an asset to the Licensor as the licensed asset itself because it outlines the relationship of all parties involved and must be carefully negotiated and drafted.

- Loan Agreements

Documents carefully drafted regarding the terms and conditions of the loan. This could involve both debt and equity exchange, personal guarantees, collateral, interest payments, and lump sum disbursements. Whether you are loaning or borrowing money, you need to have a very clear picture of the responsibilities and requirements of the deal terms.

- Joint Ventures

A joint venture is a commercial enterprise undertaken by two or more parties who retain distinct separation of each of their respective entities but likewise share in the profits and losses of the joint undertaking. This is a very common relationship in the business world. It allows two separate companies to “join forces” on a specific endeavor but does not include an ownership interest exchange in either party’s business. We are happy to negotiate and draft the Joint Venture Agreement so that all parties involved know exactly what is expected of them so as to maximize the commercial success of the joint venture.

- Independent Contractor/ Work-For-Hire Agreements

The Independent Contractor Agreement is very important when retaining the services of third parties that may include intellectual property rights. When designating a party as an Independent Contractor, you are not responsible for the contractor’s tax obligations. The purpose of this agreement is to outline the ownership of any intellectual property rights that may arise in the relationship. For example, when hiring a programmer to develop a software for your company, unless otherwise agreed, the programmer will own the copyright to the source code you are paying him to develop on your behalf. The independent contractor work-for-hire relationship makes clear that the businesses of each party are separate and distinct and outlines the ownership of the assets, whether tangible or intangible, that are created or developed as a result of the scope of work between the hiring party and the independent contractor.

- Distribution Agreements

A Distribution Agreement is a contract between a supplier of goods and a distributor of goods. The supplier may be a manufacturer of the goods but it also could be the owner/creator of certain goods such as music, literary publications, or films. The arrangement between supplier and distributor may be exclusive or non-exclusive and for a set period of time or perpetual in nature. In many of these types of agreements, particularly in the entertainment industry, there are complex royalty configurations that need to be outlined as well as equity interests in the goods being sold.

- Non-Compete Agreements

In the world of business contracts, a non-compete agreement or covenant not to compete, is a clause under which one party agrees not to compete in a particular trade or profession with the other party. This is very common in employment agreements, where the employer requires an employee to sign a covenant not to compete. The nature of the non-compete restriction is based on length of the restriction as well as geographical scope. For purposes of enforceability, the longer the restriction lasts, the smaller the geographical scope must be, and visa versa. In the state of Florida, restraints on trade are not favored, but in many instances, they are necessary to protect the ongoing goodwill of a business enterprise. Before signing a non-compete agreement or presenting one to a perspective employee, it is very important to outline the specific concerns and understand the nature and extent of the agreement.

- Non-Solicitation Agreements

A Non-Solicitation Agreement is a contract or clause within a contract that prohibits one party from soliciting the business, contacts, customers, and employees of the other party. These types of agreements are very common in employment contracts and are necessary to protect your business against unfair competition.

- Venture Capital Documents:

These type of legal documents typically include debt and equity purchases, as well as agreements converting debt and equity. Many of these agreements fall under the definition of negotiable instruments and are quite often governed by Securities Regulations, both by the SEC and Florida Blue Sky Laws.

- Complex Loan Workouts

At the Law Offices of Richard Corey, we have extensive experience in identifying and resolving actual and potential legal issues involved in restricting a loan.

Intellectual Property Law and Litigation

- Intellectual Property Law and Litigation

Intellectual Property is the body of law governing innovation and creative works. It is the backbone to many business endeavors and its protection is of vital importance. This area of law outlines the rights of the intellectual property owner as well as the rights of the consumer and the public at large.

Protecting your Intellectual Property is what we are here to help you with. As a published Author, Richard P. Corey is the owner of several copyrights and trademarks.

Copyright registration is the Federal Government’s way of acknowledging the ownership of and exclusive right to use your work and any derivatives or licenses thereto.

- Trademarks and Service Marks

The United States Patent and Trademark Office defines a trademark as a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party to those of others. A Service Mark is the same as a trademark but regards a source of services rather than a product. Simply put, a trademark is how the public recognizes your goods and services. Whether its your logo, company name, or slogan, it is the face of your enterprise and acts as the foundation of your brand identity. Effectively distinguishing your products and services in the marketplace is possibly the most important aspect of differentiating yourself from the competition. Trademark rights are derived from actual use of the mark in interstate commerce, and when properly registered with the USPTO, afford significant statutory protection in addition to the protection awarded by common law.

- Trade Secrets

Trade Secrets are defined as information, formulas, business processes, programs, techniques, or methods of operation that derive independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known or readily ascertainable by the public, and are the subject of reasonable efforts to maintain their secrecy. They are the “secret sauce” that provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Florida follows the Uniform Trade Secret Act and has enacted Florida Statute §688 as the governing body for enforcement of trade secret rights and remedies for unauthorized use or disclosure. Unlike trademarks which are the face of the brand and exposed to the public, trade secrets are kept behind closed doors. The name “Coca Cola” is the trademark that we all know and recognize differentiating that particular product from others such as Pepsi. Although there are many cola brands and many ways to make a delicious soda product, there is only one recipe that makes Coca Cola… that is the trade secret. Protecting your trade secret is crucial particularly in the area of software development. Remedies for trade secret infringement include lost profits, compensation for the “head start” obtained by wrongful disclosure of the trade secret, and a reasonably royalty for its use.

- Wills

A Will is a legal document directing the personal representative of your estate on how to distribute your personal and business assets upon your death.

We all are going to die one day… a Will ensures that your loved ones receive your assets as you specifically intended. We customize your Will to account for all of you assets and business interests. In many instances, proper estate planning can avoid the long and expensive process of probate.

- Trusts

Whether it’s a revocable or irrevocable trust, the Trust document removes assets from your name, and places the title thereto into the name of the trust, which in many occasions protects the asset from creditors. These documents must be carefully planned and prepared. There are many different types of trust documents each with their own specific functions. Call now to discuss your options.
