Our Tampa business lawyers have experience in a range of different litigation and contract matters.  However, our first consideration is always the business impacts of litigation and contracts.  Finding alternative solutions to legal problems often saves time and money.  However, for matters that necessarily involve litigation, our attorneys have extensive trial and courtroom experience.  We have been proud to represent clients  in state and federal courts, appeals courts and before the Florida and United States Supreme Court.  Whatever your business matter is, our firm is equipped to handle it.

Our Practice Areas

We handle business needs of every company from its inception, through it's growth and into its legacy years.  Whether you need an employment law attorney, a complex business litigation lawyer, or a general corporate counsel, we've got you covered:

  • Commercial & Business Litigation

    Though always an avenue of last resort, sometimes it's necessary to engage in litigation.  Our firm handles business lawsuits in a number of different areas, including: breach of contract; trade secret protection; copyright and trademark infringement litigation; complex business litigation; and regulatory disputes with the state or federal government.  Our business attorneys have also represented companies in real estate and construction matters.

  • Contract Drafting and Review

    The very core of every business is the promises and agreements under which it operates.  That's why your contracts, bid proposals, invoices and terms of service need to be well drafted and reviewed.  If you haven't had an attorney review the documents that are vital to your company's success, then you might be bound for lawsuits and collection troubles. 

  • Florida Corporate Counsel

    Our firm advises out-of-state businesses on operations and law within the State of Florida.  We act as local counsel and offer pro hac vice services to attorneys for companies and firms that are out of state.  We also act as outside counsel for Florida businesses that prefer not to maintain a general counsel's office.

  • Business and Corporate Formation

    What corporate entity is right for your new business? Our business attorneys can help you evaluate your needs to select which of the Florida business organizations fits your goals and needs.  From drafting operating agreements and bylaws, to setting up employment contracts and non-competes, our firm can lawyers can set your company on the path to success.

  • Employment Law

    Our firm represents businesses in employment law disputes.  Whether your company is involved in Fair Labor Standards and Practices lawsuits, or is developing new positions and policies, we have the experience to protect your company.

A Business Law Firm

Founded in the Tampa Bay Area by Managing Partner Andrew Tapp in 2012, our firm has worked for a number of local and national companies. The first and foremost consideration for any advice that our attorneys offer is the health of your business.  Sometimes this impacts how our contracts and agreements are designed, other times it impacts our advice regarding pending and potential litigation.  We have found that a careful and considered approach to disputes minimizes negative impacts on businesses and frees up owners and managers to focus on the day to day operations of their business without concern for how a pending dispute is being handled.
