Ansbacher Law can assist in almost every aspect of your business, including real estate and title insurance, contract review and drafting, commercial lease review, development and construction, eminent domain and condemnation, entity selection and formation, general business counsel services, asset protection, litigation, and dispute resolution. We work closely with bankers, accountants, and financial advisers to provide useful and actionable advice to help companies manage risk and become more profitable.

Contract Preparation & Review

Contracts should be written in plain English so every party is clear about their obligations and what to expect from the other party.

Our firm regularly assists entrepreneurs in matters involving partnership agreements and shareholder agreements. We can recommend the best type of business entity to establish and formulate partner or shareholder agreements. We can also draft operating agreements that clearly define the roles and responsibilities of each partner or shareholder.

Ansbacher Law can draft or review any contract required in the operation of your business, including:

  • Commercial leases
  • Sales contracts
  • Real estate contracts
  • Business purchase agreements
  • Employment contracts and non-compete agreements
  • Shareholder and partner agreements
  • Other types of business contracts

The attorneys at Ansbacher Law have decades of experience in providing commercial law advice to business owners in Florida. We can draft a business contract, review a proposed contract, or provide you with an opinion as to whether or not an existing contract is enforceable.

Franchise Agreements

Franchise Agreements tend to be lengthy and complicated. We represent Florida franchisors and franchisees in disputes and litigation arising under the Franchise Agreement. Typical disputes that require legal assistance for franchisors and franchisees include:

  • Encroachment or competition by the franchisor
  • The franchisor’s failure to train or properly support the franchisee
  • The franchisee’s failure to pay royalty fees
  • The franchisee’s violations of the non-compete clause
  • Misuse of proprietary information by franchise


If a lease is written in plain English and both parties understand what it means, disputes are less likely to occur and the terms of the lease are easy to reference. Sadly, most of the commercial leases you can download from the internet are written in an archaic, incomprehensible language and may not cover all of the issues that are important to you. An experienced real estate attorney is familiar with common disputes and issues that arise in a lease and can make sure all of your critical concerns are included in your lease. Attorney Barry B. Ansbacher is board certified by The Florida Bar in real estate law and has more than 30 years of experience in drafting and reviewing office, commercial, industrial and ground leases.

Compliance With Laws and Regulations

Even the simplest business requires navigating complex laws, rules, and regulations enacted by Federal, State, and local governments. Ansbacher Law’s team of lawyers stay abreast of laws that can affect your business and can provide you with actionable information to avoid pitfalls.
