Business Organization

Helping entrepreneurs build their dreams

Formation is a crucial time in the life of a business and no single type of business entity is right for every situation.  While many companies purport to offer do-it-yourself business formation kits, their products are generic forms that often fail to address important issues.  Our business attorneys offer the experience and professional knowledge necessary to help businesses choose the right entity type and get off to a strong start:


Sole Proprietors


C and S Corporations

Limited Liability Companies

Not-for-Profit Corporations

Professional Service Corporations

Professional Associations 


Business formation should involve a thorough examination of several matters including: business type, liability issues, management style and taxation. These issues can have a long-term effect on the profitability and sustainability of a business.  At Burke Blue, our business lawyers take an interest in the success of our clients.  We seek to form relationships with business clients that last for the life of the business — from formation to dissolution or sale.


At Burke Blue, our business attorneys do more than draft and file documents.  We have a genuine concern for the success of our clients and provide legal advice to give them the best chance at achieving their goals


Forming a business in Florida

Forming a business in Florida is a complex, multi-stage process. Deciding what type of business to form is only the first step. After formation, there are numerous other issues including licensing and registration, taxation, intellectual property and more. Entrepreneurs who purchase generic documents from business formation services must usually fend for themselves when confronting these many issues.


The lawyers at Burke Blue understand that filing documents with the secretary of state is only one small part of what is necessary to form a successful business.  Business clients can count on Burke Blue’s attorneys to stick with them and to be available to answer questions and confront future issues.  Having such experienced counsel readily available enables business clients to focus on what really matters — running and building their businesses.
