Noncompete Agreement

Florida

Asked on Jul 12, 2023

Noncompete agreement and business partners?

I am a business owner who has recently acquired a new partner. We are in the process of drafting a Noncompete Agreement to ensure that neither of us will compete against each other in the same market. We are looking for advice on what should be included in the agreement and how it should be enforced.

Daniel D.

Answered Aug 4, 2023

The one thing to make sure with noncompete agreements is that it is reasonable in terms of duration and the area you cannot compete in. Courts use a reasonableness test to determine whether a noncompete agreement is valid. If provisions are deemed to be unreasonable and fail the test, they could be altered or struck out of the agreement.

Demand Letter

Florida

Asked on Sep 19, 2023

How often are demand letters effective?

I recently received a demand letter from a creditor regarding an unpaid debt. I'm trying to understand the effectiveness of demand letters and how to respond. I'm looking for some guidance on the best course of action to take.

Matthew F.

Answered Sep 22, 2023

Please see article that I wrote on this subject. Unveiling the Myth of Demand Letters: Why They Are not the Silver Bullet You Think They Are Unveiling the Myth of Demand Letters: Why They Are not the Silver Bullet You Think They Are The world of contracts and payments is often a murky one, with defaults and delays being unfortunately common. For professionals seeking their rightful payments, demand letters are often presented as the magic wand that will resolve all disputes. However, in real-world scenarios, the effectiveness of demand letters is debatable. Let’s dissect this widely accepted norm and reveal why demand letters might not be the solution they are often made out to be. The Proclaimed Power of Demand Letters: More Illusion than Reality? Demand letters are typically portrayed as the first and most potent step in the payment recovery process. After all, they do convey your seriousness about the issue at hand. Furthermore, their legal format can give them an intimidating aura, making the other party think twice about withholding payment. But while these reasons may seem compelling, they often fail to convert into the desired action, i.e., the release of your due payment. The bitter truth is that if an individual or business was going to comply with the terms of a contract or make a payment, they likely would have done so without the need for a demand letter. It is not uncommon for the receiving party to view the demand letter as another stall tactic, giving them additional time to avoid paying without any real consequence. Why Demand Letters Miss Their Mark In theory, a demand letter can lay down a solid foundation for your case if you have to resort to litigation. But again, the question is, would you need to go to court if the demand letter was as effective as it is made out to be? At its core, a demand letter is a tool designed to inspire fear of legal repercussions. However, more often than not, it simply does not wield enough influence or power to elicit the desired response from the recipient. Many times, it merely serves as a reminder of an existing obligation, not a compelling reason to fulfill it. The Better Alternative: An Educated Business Decision A more effective and practical approach could be to shift the focus from using demand letters to make an educated business decision. This involves analyzing the unique aspects of your situation, such as the size of the debt, the debtor’s ability to pay, and the cost and time required for a lawsuit. By taking into consideration all relevant factors, you can devise a strategy that is likely to get you your money without wasting excessive time, effort, or resources. Often, this approach might include exploring alternative dispute resolution methods or even pursuing litigation if that seems the most practical way forward. Summing It Up Demand letters have proven to be far less effective than often perceived. Their inherent limitations and the attitude of the recipients often make them inadequate to coerce an owner into making due payments. They are often ignored or yield ineffective responses if any at all. Instead of relying on demand letters, it is more productive to make a well-informed business decision about how best to recover your due payment. Consider all your options, weigh their pros and cons, and then make a decision that is likely to bring you the results you desire. After all, in business, actions that bring you closer to your goals are the ones that truly matter.

Consulting Agreement

Florida

Asked on Nov 23, 2021

Who reviews consulting agreements?

Who can I get to review a 5 page CONSULTING AGREEMENT that a potential client has sent me? I am an independent consultant, specializing in website design and online marketing. A prospective client has sent me a 'fully loaded' CONSULTING AGREEMENT. The contract is more detailed than I have dealt with before, so I feel need legal support to review it and protect my interests.

Employment Contract

Florida

Asked on Apr 17, 2023

What's the safety policy in an employment contract?

I recently accepted a job offer from a new employer and as part of the employment contract, I need to understand the safety policy in the workplace. I understand that safety policies in the workplace are important for the protection of both employees and employers, but I am not sure of the specific details of the safety policy included in my employment contract. I would like to know what safety policies are included in the contract in order to ensure that I have a safe working environment.

Articles of Incorporation

Florida

Asked on May 12, 2022

new business startup

we are located in florida but were told delaware is a good satte to incorporaet the business

Bruce B.

Answered May 27, 2022

Yes. Many businesses choose to incorporate in Delaware because Delaware has favorable laws to business entities as well as a detailed history of how cases will by decided by their courts. For this reason Delaware is a good option to consider for incorporation. You can then register with the State of Florida as a foreign corporation doing business in Florida.
