From issues that arise on a regular basis, like the need to review contracts; to complex commercial litigation or disputes involving intellectual property, our experienced attorneys do it all.

We resolve legal issues as quickly as possible so our clients can focus on doing business. 

Business Formation

Turning an idea for a business into an actual business takes perseverance. It also takes a lot of paperwork. The Lomnitzer Law Firm is here to help South Florida entrepreneurs draft all the documents and fill out all the forms needed to turn their dream into a reality. 

One of the first steps is figuring out which business structure will work best. Sole proprietorships, LLCs, partnerships, corporations, and not-for-profits all work differently. Choosing the one that works best for a particular project is important because it has a big impact on day to day operations. The business structure also dictates things like personal liability for the business’s mistakes and the way taxes are paid. The Lomnitzer team advises business creators on the options available to them, then guides them through the business formation process. 

Starting up also means starting from scratch when it comes to drafting contracts with vendors and customers, reviewing leases, and crafting confidentiality and trade secret agreements. The Lomnitzer Law Firm drafts agreements that protect our clients from legal pitfalls they don’t even know they need to look out for in addition to memorializing unique business concepts.  

Whether our clients are at the sketch-on-the-back-of-an-envelope stage, ready to seek financing, or about to open their doors, we are there to advise them and steer them in the right direction. 

Outside General Counsel 

Business leaders often face challenges that present legal as well as operational hurdles. Having an attorney on staff who can provide advice when needed would be ideal, but it is often cost-prohibitive. The next best option is contracting with a business law firm, like The Lomnitzer Law Firm, whose experienced attorneys can serve as outside general counsel. 

Our backgrounds, combined with our legal knowledge, help us provide legal counsel on an as-needed basis to a variety of businesses in South Florida. 

We understand the importance of balancing legal considerations with business demands. The outside general counsel model allows us to help our clients keep costs down while still minimizing risk, resolving disputes, and completing routine tasks like reviewing contracts. 

Regulatory Compliance 

South Florida business owners must ensure they are following an ever-growing number of federal, state, and local laws if they want to stay open for business. Compliance with these regulations is critical because even a minor infraction can lead to fines or sanctions. Major mistakes or willful disobedience may even lead to jail time. 

At The Lomnitzer Law Firm, we help South Florida businesses navigate the laws and regulations that apply in their particular industry. We assess our client’s current activities, craft policies and procedures that businesses can follow to help ensure compliance, and constantly monitor policymaking so we know when our clients need to reassess what they are doing. 

We also point out gray areas where our clients need to adjust their actions to match the level of risk they are willing to take on because there is not clear guidance from the government.  As compliance counsel, it is our job to explain what options are available, and what risks come with each option so our clients can make an informed decision. 

Commercial & Civil Litigation 

The Lomnitzer Law Firm provides the custom service of a boutique law firm and the expertise of a large name-brand law firm, which is why many South Florida business owners rely on us to resolve their legal disputes. While we always try to negotiate a solution that will keep our clients out of court, litigation is sometimes necessary to get a satisfactory result. 

When it comes to complex commercial litigation, our firm will aggressively litigate your civil disputes. We also have years of experience with individual and business disputes, breach of contract cases, disagreements over royalty payments, debt collection, and all forms of intellectual property disputes. 

Patent Litigation 

The attorneys at The Lomnitzer Law Firm have the right mix of legal knowledge, industry experience, and business sense to take on the most complex patent disputes. Over the years, we have represented South Florida patent seekers, patent holders, and those accused of violating patents in patent litigation across the country. Working on both sides of these disputes has given us the experience to develop winning strategies for our clients. 

When someone violates a patent owner’s exclusive right to use or sell a product, or accuses our client of doing so, The Lomnitzer Law Firm takes swift legal action. While we do our best to resolve and avoid disputes before they wind up in court, when litigation is necessary, we aggressively advocate on behalf of our clients and we are always ready to go to trial. 

We also advocate on our clients’ behalf at the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Trademark Litigation 

A trademark can help a creator or business brand and expand, but the benefits of obtaining a trademark are not self-executing. When infringement is alleged, or some other sort of dispute arises, the Lomnitzer Law team takes aggressive action to protect our clients’ brand. The Lomnitzer Law team has handled trademark infringement cases in federal court, state court, and at the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).

We also defend South Florida creators and business owners accused of infringing on someone else’s trademark. The moment a cease and desist letter is received or an infringement claim is filed in court we are ready to spring into action to protect our clients’ rights.
