Welcome to Meehle & Jay
If you are a business owner, maker, creative, or entertainer in need of legal counsel and services, you are in the right place! Meehle & Jay is a Florida-based law firm. We focus our practice on meeting the legal needs of business owners and entertainment, media, and tech industry professionals. You’ll find we are different from other law firms in three basic areas:
1. WE SERVE ONLY BUSINESS CLIENTS. Our practice focuses on small businesses, corporations, entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives. We choose not to specialize in an area of law, but to focus our practice on serving only a certain type of client – business clients. Whether you need help with selecting the right business entity designation when forming your business; negotiating and creating contracts for employees, vendors or clients; entertainment transactions such as copyright, trademark, right of publicity, agency, or publishing; defending your business interests in court; protecting your trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights; planning to transition the business; or any other typical legal needs for your business or entertainment, we can help.
2. OUR FEES ARE PREDICTABLE. We understand the need for most, if not all, businesses and creatives to be able to predict expenses and stick to budgets. For this reason, unlike many other law firms, we generally do not bill by the hour (or 6 minutes or quarter hour). Instead, for most transactional work, we charge a flat rate and we tell you what that rate is going to be right at the outset. This puts you in the driver’s seat.
3. WE HAVE YOUR BACK FROM FORMATION TO LITIGATION. Many transactional law firms– lawyers who do things like draft contracts or prepare other paperwork– are there for you to put preventative measures in place. But, should you ever need them to defend you in court, they refer you to other lawyers called “litigators.” At Meehle & Jay, we want to be part of your support team through the life of your business. Whether that means applying for a license with a government entity, aggressively defending your business interests in court, or guiding you through an exit strategy, we have your back for the life of your business.
Whether you are looking for a law firm to help you with a one-time legal need, or you need a pro-active partner to help you as your business grows, Meehle & Jay is ready to serve you. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation to discuss your legal needs.
