Fitness and health and The Legal Department

Fitness & Health Professionals

At The Legal Department, we love working with our fitness and health professionals! We have experience with nutritionists, health coaches, fitness instructors, aestheticians, chiropractors and practitioners of functional medicine. In an ever-growing industry that helps people achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is important to get the legal help you need to succeed so you may continue to help others.

Most often our clients who are health professionals come see us to improve their worker relationships and ensure they are compliant with all regulations. These are essential components to have in place for your business to have a strong foundation.

Want to see how we can help you create the legal infrastructure you need to grow and build your business the RIGHT way?

Here’s what our clients who are fitness and health professionals are saying:

“I would highly recommend this law firm. Laurie Lee met every one of our expectations plus some! Her professionalism, attention to detail and customer service are superior! Working with this firm was by far the best experience we have ever had with any firm!”

Michelle Siner, Happy & Healthy Fitness

“Laurie truly elevates the profession: she approaches matters like a project manager, thinks outside the box but always with a keen eye on the law and then explains things like you’d expect from a private tutor.  You sit back and you realize this lawyer has your back… and your future.”

Jane Brown, Amelia Island Health & Wellness

“Their knowledge and expertise made for a smooth transition from someone who was nervous to take the plunge and start a business to someone who is now excited and ready to take his business to places that seemed like they would only ever be achievable in dreams.”

Frank Allen, Your Place Physical Therapy

We created this InfoSheet to help you better understand how we can assist with your particular profession’s legal needs.

For fitness and health services, the two areas of most concern are highlighted below:

Entity Structure

The type, organization, structure, and governance of your business is the most basic aspect of your foundation.

Regulatory Compliance

Many service professionals are governed by specialized rules and regulations in addition to general regulations.

Client Relationships

Having direct, honest relationships with your clients is the key to repeat business, referrals, and long-term success.

Vendor Relationships

When you’re the client, understanding the agreement and how the relationship should work is critical.

Worker Relationships

Relationships with an employee or independent contractor need to be defined to protect your business and clients.

Owner Relationships

Without structure or guidelines to establish expectations and accountability, business partners can pose a high risk.


An important part of protecting your brand is making sure you trademark rights are in place. 


Copyrights capture a broad range of things you create for your business or for your clients.
