Buildings with many stories also give property owners and developers the opportunity to rent out their space for a variety of uses—office buildings, storefronts, storage spaces, etc., which can expand existing business models and promote growth. However, for developers who want to utilize land and space around a Florida airport, height considerations become incredibly important in determining how a proposed project will pan out.

Along with these commitments come responsibilities that each party owes the other. These responsibilities are governed under Florida’s law, no matter how long the rental term lasts, how the payments are made or what building is involved.

“Storm In Progress” Injuries and Medical Care http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/storm-in-progress-injuries-and-medical-care/ Big storms can cause a lot of damage, to both property and people, and those who seek medical treatment for injuries as a result of a storm might also be seeking coverage from a variety of insurance policies. These include medical insurance and homeowner’s insurance. Depending on where the accident occurred, an injured patient may be trying to make a “slip and fall” claim against the person who owns the property, which could affect how a doctor can provide treatment or medical advice.

Options for Asset Protection http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/options-for-asset-protection/ Even if you have spent your entire career working hard to ensure your financial security and the security of your loved ones in the future, your assets could be under attack at a moment’s notice. It can be hard to protect your financial holdings and physical assets from every angle once that happens. For people in high-risk professions like medicine and health care, or people who invest in business and real estate, or even those going through messy divorces, asset protection plans are critical to keeping them and their families from financial ruin.

Anesthesia-Related Malpractice Cases http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/anesthesia-related-malpractice-cases/ There are plenty of routine procedures that require anesthesia for the patient, but it’s likely not routine for patients to consider who is providing their anesthesia care or to know and understand what all is involved in providing such care. Anesthesia providers are responsible for providing the medication that puts the patient under during surgery, but they are also responsible for managing the patient’s breathing, circulation, fluids and a whole variety of other vital bodily functions throughout the entire process. Their jobs begin before the patient’s surgery and do not end until after the operation is fully completed.

Protecting Your Assets: A Look at Foreign Accounts http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/protecting-your-assets-a-look-at-foreign-accounts/ In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, many Americans have said that they’ll be picking up and moving to another country. Joking or not, there’s a lot to consider if you’re moving money to another country, even if you remain in the U.S. Although many crime movies and TV shows use foreign bank accounts as plot points (a villain squirrels his money away in a Cayman or offshore account, for example), plenty of people have utilized foreign accounts as part of their asset protection plans.

Privacy Expectations for Bank Records http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/privacy-expectations-for-bank-records/ If you’re the subject of a criminal investigation, the police and detectives involved will look at everything they can get their hands on, leaving as few stones unturned as possible to build their case. Often, this involves a thorough examination of your bank records, especially if you are charged with any type of white collar crime. Although bank records are personal and confidential, the laws regarding criminal investigations don’t always reflect the right to privacy that you would normally expect when it comes to your finances.

Price Transparency in Florida’s Health Care http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/price-transparency-in-florida-s-health-care/ “Price transparency” is a big buzzword for consumer products. Southwest Airlines has coined its own version of the phrase (“transfarency”), and many other companies use the line to promote their ideals of honest communication with their customers: know what you’re paying for upfront, with no hidden fees or agendas. But how does the concept of price transparency translate in the medical field?

Going Bare? Be Upfront http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/going-bare-be-upfront/ Medical malpractice lawsuits are a looming threat for doctors, nurses, and anyone in the health care business. The struggle to provide quality care while acknowledging the reality of human error, the variables of disease, and the truth of human mortality is a constant one. The margin of error is practically zero when it comes to treating people and saving lives. Doctors and nurses are on high alert for litigation, and the after-effects of a lawsuit that doesn’t go their way can cost them their careers, homes, possessions, and even personal relationships.

Legal Termination in Florida http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/legal-termination-in-florida/ It’s tough to find steady employment in today’s job market, and the struggling economy isn’t helping. More and more people are having trouble earning a living wage to support themselves and their families. While this does mean is that there’s a large pool of candidates applying for any and all jobs in a given field, it also means that employers who let employees go, even for valid reasons (performance, availability, payroll cuts, etc.), should be on guard against lawsuits from disgruntled ex-employees who are desperate to keep their jobs or fight back against a firing.

Estate Planning and Personal Representatives http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/estate-planning-and-personal-representatives/ Part of estate planning is preparing for someone else to handle your affairs after your death. Ideally, this person is someone you trust to carry out your final wishes when you’re not there to oversee the process. However, you can also appoint a trust company or a bank as your personal representative if you do not want to name an individual.

Shareholder and Partner Disputes http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/shareholder-and-partner-disputes/ Even the closest of friends have disagreements, and business partners are no different, especially when they’re working together to build a company and ensure financial prosperity. Successful companies are comprised of many different people, each with different personalities, work ethics, and visions. When these people get together to plan a building’s or a business’s future, their varied opinions and ideas can help shape a unique model, and create a company that stands out. However, these opinions and ideas can also cause tension and conflict, so it’s important to have legal protection and decision-making guidelines in place when conflicts arise.

Non-Compete Clauses http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/non-compete-clauses/ Companies that want to make their way to the top (or remain on top) have to ensure that their business secrets are kept closely guarded, even as employees transition through the company. That “special something” that sets each company apart, even in similar, related fields, is extremely valuable as a commodity, and most businesses protect their trade secrets by making employees sign non-compete clauses upon hire. But what does a non-compete clause do and how does it work in the real world of the ever-changing job market?

Proximate Cause http://www.lubellrosen.com/blog/proximate-cause/ When a patient files a malpractice lawsuit, he or she is alleging some level of misconduct or negligence on the part of the doctor, nurse, or other medical professional involved in his or her care. In tort law, the reasonable connection between the defendant’s act of negligence or misconduct and the harm suffered by the plaintiff is called “proximate cause,” a critical component of a medical malpractice case. However, proximate cause is often misunderstood by defendants and even some attorneys, and it’s important to be aware of what the cause is in your case and what it means for your defense.
