Business

ForsterBoughman guides businesses of all sizes through their legal life-cycle. We handle start-ups, mergers and acquisitions, contracts, and regulatory review.

...
Our business-oriented attorneys work directly with clients to timely and efficiently draft contracts, close transactions, establish corporate structures, and resolve regulatory issues. We steer entrepreneurs through the process of selecting and forming the appropriate business entity. Our firm evaluates the pros and cons of choosing an LLC, corporation, partnership, or foreign entity.

Our firm also handles all partnership, franchise, financing, and employment agreements. You will work with a seasoned corporate attorney to draft and negotiate the documents necessary to buy, sell, merge or reorganize a target business. We manage every step of the process, from letters of intent through closing.

ForsterBoughman prepares stock or asset purchase agreements, merger agreements and reorganizations. Our attorneys handle transactions ranging from the expansion of local retail shops to the reorganization of international conglomerates. Unlike most small firms, we have substantial experience in cross-border international transactions.

The firm also frequently represents businesses of all sizes in commercial loan workouts and, for businesses seeking alternatives to bank financing, private equity investment transactions.

We also represent individuals and businesses in a wide array of commercial disputes, such as:
- Contract disputes
- Copyright claims
- Corporate, shareholder, partnership issues
- Tax controversies
- Trade secrets
- Trademarks
- Financial accounting issues
- Real estate matters
and sophisticated asset recovery and defense matters.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

An educated client is a good client. We regularly create and publish content to help clients (and the general public) increase their legal knowledge. We strongly encourage learning and personal development.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes, but often is it easier (less time and cost) for us to prepare the documents. A better approach would be for the client to create a check list of what they would like to accomplish with a particular document or filing.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Generally, this is not a good idea. As the old adage goes, "He who serves as his own counsel has a fool for a lawyer..."

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We utilize alternative dispute resolution mechanisms all the time. You really don't want to get into litigation unless it's absolutely necessary.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

We support the Legal Aid Society and many community-orientated charities.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

In most cases, Yes, however it does depend on the matter. We want clients to have the best counsel available for their matter and in some cases that involves multiple attorneys with varying specialties and experience.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

We believe clients should have the most effective legal counsel. In some cases that means a team of professionals working together based on their individual knowledge and experience.

Eric Boughman

Health & Medical Law, Technology, Business Counsel, and Asset Protection

Eric Boughman leads the firm's healthcare and technology practices. He relies on a diverse background to solve complex legal issues for healthcare and medical professionals, businesses and business owners, investors, and entrepreneurs.

Eric spent the first decade of his career as a commercial litigator representing clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to local business owners, professionals, physicians, group practices, and tech startups in complex legal disputes. Eric has settled and tried cases involving contract breaches, partnership/joint venture/corporate/shareholder disputes; real estate leasing, purchasing, development and other contract matters; business torts; licensing, franchising, trade secrets, theft, infringement, and breach; fiduciary claims, and professional licensing and professional negligence claims, fiduciary claims, and asset preservation and defense.

Over time, a significant portion of Eric’s practice involved representing companies, groups, and individuals in the medical and technology industries. As his expertise in these areas grew, and as healthcare and technology have become increasingly intertwined, Eric identified a void in comprehensive legal services specifically tailored to fulfill the needs to healthcare professionals, group practices, tech companies, and their entrepreneurial leaders. This led Eric to obtain a Certificate in Health Law and expand his practice to provide a full range of comprehensive legal services, including regulatory, transactional, and general counsel for companies in the healthcare, technology, and med-tech space.

With a desire to help his client protect the fruits of their labor, coupled with an understanding that the risk of litigation is ever-present, Eric has for several years developed strategies to protect assets against known and unforeseen risks. Today, Eric’s asset protection and preservation practice is nationally known. He represents clients across the country and is regularly called upon to educate lawyers and other professionals on asset protection strategies.

Eric is a frequent writer and presenter on issues involving health law, privacy, technology, and asset protection. His writings have appeared in multiple American Bar Association publications, The Florida Bar Journal, Forbes, Daily Business Review, Accounting Today, Kiplinger, Financial Advisor Magazine, Law360, and CEO World, among others. Eric also co-authored The Law of Artificial Intelligence, published by the ABA in 2019, and he is the editor of the Florida Health, Tech, and Law Resource.

Eric is rated AV–Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. He has been admitted to practice law in Florida and Nevada, as well as in the U.S. Tax Court, and in several other courts, nationwide, pro hac vice. He is a member of the ABA’s Healthcare Law Section, Business Law Section, and Cyberspace Law Committee, the American Healthcare Lawyers Association, and American College of Healthcare Executives.

Eric is active in the local community and professional community. He is a member of the Florida Bar Health Law Section’s Communications and Technology Committee and the American Health Law Association’s Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Committee (in a Leadership Development Role). He has served in various capacities for other professional organizations, technology companies, and healthcare companies.

He serves the local community as a board member for the Advent Health Cancer Foundation Board and the Seminole Action Board (serving as Parliamentarian for a public-private partnership whose mission focuses on bringing together community leaders to address homelessness in Seminole County). Eric is also on the advisory board for the Paralyzed Veterans of American (Central Florida Chapter). He is a past President of the Rotary Club of Lake Mary and continues to serve on that Club’s Foundation Board of Directors. Eric and his wife, Heather, proudly serve as Holiday Fundraising Consultants for Franklin’s Friends, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting animal welfare in Central Florida. Eric also serves as a legal consultant for Franklin’s Friends.

Eric lives with his wife, Heather, two children, Peyton and Ethan, and their faithful dog, Chloe, in Longwood, Florida. In his spare time, he enjoys various outdoor sporting adventures, learning about history and technology, and attending and participating in community activities. The entire family has recently taken up golf and Eric and Peyton take Piano lessons together.
