Business Entity Formation – Sweeney Law is here for you from the very beginning, helping you choose the right type of structure for your new venture. Deciding whether to form a corporation, partnership, limited liability company or other entity can have major impacts in many vital areas of your business, such as how owners and the company are taxed; exposure to and protection from liability for acts of the business or its owners; how decisions regarding important management functions and day-to-day operations are made; transfer of ownership and buy-sell agreements; selling or dissolving the company; and more.

Litigation is an inevitable fact of doing business. Disputes invariably arise during the course of business, and a certain number of those disputes will require formal legal intervention to resolve. Sweeney Law, P.A. is in your corner and at your side every step of the way, from pre-suit strategy, risk management and loss mitigation advice, to representation at trials, arbitrations and appeals.
Breach of Contract – Whether oral or written, express or implied, contracts are executed every day in business. Unfortunately, the terms of a contract are not always clear, the parties differ over what was intended, or one party simply fails to live up to the contract’s terms and conditions. You are entitled to the benefit of the bargain you entered into, and to collect money damages for harm caused by a contract breach. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in breach of contract lawsuits involving vendor and supplier contracts, employment agreements, customer and client transactions, real estate and construction claims, and more.
Business Torts – Even without a contractual relationship, business owners can find themselves embroiled in disputes regarding alleged deceptive trade practices, unfair competition, fraud and misrepresentation, interference with contractual relationships and more. Whether suing or being sued, we have the skills and experience in business tort litigation necessary to represent your interests and protect your rights.
Title III-ADA Litigation – Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act requires private businesses open to the public to comply with certain building accessibility standards when engaged in new construction or renovations. Although businesses struggle mightily to comply with the law and respond to requests or complaints from consumers or the general public, some people continue to stake out businesses that may be out of compliance and sue them expressly for the purpose of extracting a quick cash settlement. Let us help you be proactive and avoid these costly lawsuits. We can perform an audit to identify any potential violations and position you for ADA compliance. Our knowledge of ADA Title III can prove invaluable if you are targeted for litigation under the Public Accommodations section of the ADA.
