Lawyers with Lankford Law Firm have worked with businesses of all sizes and in a vast range of different niches. We understand the importance of developing a solid business plan that will guide your venture’s growth and development in the coming weeks, months, and years.

As experienced business attorneys, we understand how to help you draft a business plan that is realistic, compliant with local and federal regulations, and sufficiently detailed so it can guide your venture into the future. We can also help you develop key documents, such as company policies, an employee handbook, and company procedures for addressing any potential legal issues that arise.

Our Law Firm Will Help You Incorporate and Form a Business in Florida

The incorporation and business formation process can be quite involved, complex, and time-consuming, especially if you’re trying to navigate the process on your own! Starting a new business is no small feat, but this is where an experienced business formation lawyer can assist.

Our Daytona Beach law firm will help guide you through every aspect of the incorporation process, including:

  • Helping you choose the right type of business entity for your venture, including a partnership, limited liability corporation (LLC), or corporation;
  • Assisting with the incorporation process and articles of incorporation;
  • Guiding you through the process of addressing local bylaws and ensuring you’re in full compliance; and
  • Drafting and reviewing key documents such as operating agreements, shareholder agreements, employment contracts, and other important business matters.

Business owners must appoint a registered agent to address matters like a lawsuit or summons. Our legal team is happy to assist in this capacity. We can also guide you through the process of trademarking your logo, slogan, or product name, and securing copyrights for key pieces of content.

The business contract lawyers of Lankford Law Firm can draft a variety of different documents, including:

  • business-to-business (B2B) contracts and agreements;
  • work for hire agreements;
  • bid proposals for local, state, or federal government contracts;
  • rental agreements or lease agreements;
  • asset purchase agreements;
  • consulting contracts;
  • non-compete agreements; and
  • non-disclosure agreements, amongst others.

It’s especially important to have your own attorney review any business contract or written agreement before signing, especially if the other party’s lawyer prepared the documents. The other party’s attorney will often draft the contract in a manner that gives their own client the upper hand, so you must have a lawyer who can look out for your interests. Our contract lawyers can help interpret any information that is unclear and we can also prepare a modified version of the contract for you to present to the other party if it appears that the original document is not in your best interest.


Don’t wait for legal trouble to find you. Develop a working relationship with an experienced Daytona Beach lawyer before you find yourself in court. In fact, starting a business without a small business lawyer’s advice can be risky, as you may encounter challenges down the road. Providing legal services throughout Central Florida, the Lankford Law Firm will work to protect your business, your legal rights, and your interests.
