Meet your Attorney

Hi, I’m Jason, Founder — at your Service!

I have more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer. I can say with certainty that I am most passionate about working directly with business owners and providing value to make sure they achieve all-new levels of success rather than just enough to get by.

I left a successful career with one of the biggest law firms in the world to work with you — business owners and entrepreneurs.

Giant corporations provide great opportunities to learn business operations, but it is not the same as working directly with the people who break their backs to build their businesses. I am lucky to have the opportunity to work side-by-side with entrepreneurs who are paving their own way.

I started Venerable so I could be with you for the whole ride and not just a one-time solution, whether it is a generic issue about a contract or one of many legal issues that come with owning a business.

Frequently Asked Questions
01What are the disadvantages associated with a limited liability company (LLC)?

Many new business owners create a Florida LLC because they seek asset protection. In terms of asset protection, an LLC offers the same liability protection as a corporation but does not require many of the same record-keeping requirements. However, LLCs have several disadvantages as opposed to sole proprietorship or general partnership. These disadvantages include higher costs to initially form and maintain the LLC and limited ownership transfer flexibility. Therefore, for anyone trying to choose the best business formation strategy for their needs, it is always best to consult a knowledgeable attorney who can explain your legal options.

02What Should I Know When Starting Up a Business?

When starting up a business, it’s crucial to understand key legal and financial considerations. Begin by selecting the right business structure — sole proprietorship, partnership, LLC, or corporation — each with different implications for liability and taxes. Obtain the necessary licenses and permits to operate legally in your area. Protect your intellectual property with trademarks, patents, or copyrights. Draft clear contracts for employees, partners, and suppliers to avoid future disputes. Ensure compliance with local, state, and federal regulations, including tax obligations. Consulting with a business attorney to navigate complex legal requirements and safeguard your business from potential risks can be incredibly beneficial for your business moving forward.

03What are Articles of Organization?

If you plan to form a new Florida LLC, you must file legal paperwork with the Florida Division of Corporations. Articles of Organization is the title page that states the LLC’s name, address, and other required information, such as who is acting as the legally required registered agent. The Articles of Organization document also includes the names of the members and managers of the LLC and its effective date. A Tampa business attorney can assist your company by helping to prepare and file your documents and advise you of any permits or licenses your LLC may need.

04Are there steps my business can take to avoid potential litigation?

Avoiding litigation should be a priority for any business. Litigation can be costly and, depending on the circumstances, cause the business to suffer significant damage to its reputation and financial bottom line. Some of the best ways to avoid potential litigation are to conduct regular employee training, implement safety measures, keep detailed business records, and maintain good relationships with customers and vendors.

05Why is business succession planning important for family-owned businesses?

Many small businesses in the Tampa Bay area are family-owned, and often, older family members assume that their heirs will eventually take over the company. However, statistics show that only 30 % of family-owned businesses make it through the second generation of ownership. Many older family members wrongfully assume that their heirs will want to run the business. Therefore, business succession planning is crucial to determine who will ultimately take over upon the retirement or death of the current owner and how a transfer of ownership should be funded. Additionally, sufficient time must be allotted for the successor to be trained and mentored to ensure the viability of the business once ownership has been transferred.

06What is a breach of fiduciary duty in business?

One of the most common causes of partnership disputes is a breach of fiduciary duty. Fiduciary duty is a legal obligation requiring one party to act in the best interest of another party. In a business context, partners owe one another a fiduciary duty to act with honesty and good faith in their business dealings. Common examples of a breach of fiduciary duty in business include fraud, engaging in self-dealing, negligence, or general misconduct. Because of the possibility of partners breaching their fiduciary duties, all partnership agreements should contain terms and conditions detailing what is expected of all parties and what will happen if a violation occurs.

07Why is choosing the right business formation important when starting a new company?

If you are considering starting a startup in Florida, it is essential that you choose the correct business formation. Choosing the proper structure for your new business guarantees specific legal protections and guards your hard-earned investment. However, before you select a business structure, you must seek legal advice from an experienced business law attorney who will work with you to ensure that you are making a wise selection and that your choice meets all applicable local, state, and federal laws. A knowledgeable attorney can provide the legal guidance you need to help your business grow and thrive.

08Why should I consult with a business law attorney before declaring bankruptcy?

Sadly, when many businesses suffer severe financial setbacks or are not meeting their goals, they automatically consider bankruptcy their first option. However, if you are a business owner experiencing financial problems, you should always hire a business restructuring attorney to evaluate your options. Often, a restructuring attorney can conduct a comprehensive study to determine if operational or financial structuring is possible to avoid bankruptcy proceedings. In many instances, with the help of a qualified attorney, businesses are able to restructure their debt and operations to help get their business back on track without the cost and worry of bankruptcy.
