SHAREHOLDER / PARTNER DISPUTES
Shareholder/Partner Disputes - Your Value Matters
Sometimes referred to as "business divorce," shareholder and partnership disputes can often devolve into the sort of emotionally charged squabbling that we normally associate with marital divorces. Indeed, both types of divorce regularly involve a sense of betrayal and a sudden dashing of once-high expectations.
Some of the frequent claims that arise among shareholders, members, or partners are breach of fiduciary duty, breach of partnership / shareholder agreements, fraud and fraudulent inducement, unjust enrichment, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, mismanagement, and the misuse of corporate funds. Unfortunately, sometimes the best option in such cases is filing for the dissolution of the company or seeking a buyout.
Our attorneys have vast experience in this highly contentious area of law. We know when to apply a delicate touch to try to cultivate the last bits of goodwill and salvage whatever remains of the relationship, in the best interest of the business. We also know when to expose lies, reveal truths, and crush bad-faith arguments designed to obfuscate, delay, and ultimately deny justice.
Our singular focus in such cases is on protecting your business interests and resolving your disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible - so you can get back to doing what you love, even if it means starting anew.
