Orlando Commercial Litigation Attorney
Commercial litigation is a very complex aspect of law, dealing with numerous regulations, legal matters, and businesses of all sizes. The stakes are large, given the number of employees that commercial litigation can affect. The Orlando commercial litigation attorneys of HD Law Partners utilize various legal tactics, aggressive maneuvers, and comprehensive strategies to accomplish the goals of our clients. And, with more than 40 years of experience, our litigation team knows how to win cases both in and outside of the courtroom.
Helping Clients Adhere to State and Federal Regulations
As per the Florida Business Corporation Act, Chapter 607 of Florida statutes, all Florida businesses must adhere to certain regulations, licensing, taxes, permits, and more. Due to the complexity and sheer number of state regulations, both small and large business owners often find themselves in trouble with the state for inadvertently violating this statute. Small business owners often have enough on their plate already without becoming experts on Florida business laws, while large companies are equally busy with dozens or hundreds of employees, vendors, and other tasks. In addition to state regulations, Florida businesses must also comply with certain federal regulations, such as the Federal Trade Commission Antitrust Laws and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), OSHA regulations, and EPA laws. A violation of a state or federal regulation can incur tremendous financial penalties for businesses of all sizes. For example, an OSHA violation can be over $13,000 per serious violation, and up to just over $132,000 for willful or repeated violations.
Violations of Employment Laws
Another area in which business owners get in trouble is by violating an employment law. Our attorneys can help you produce an employee handbook and make sure that you are informed about all necessary employment rules and regulations, which can save you money in the future in terms of litigation and state or federal fines. According to the U.S. Small Business Association, some of the most common employment violations, which can incur both state fines and civil lawsuits, include classifying employees and contractors, classifying non-exempt employees as exempt, failing to provide harassment training for supervisors, and letting employees set their own hourly work schedule such as working overtime without getting paid for overtime.
