Disputes between business partners can arise from a number of different situations, such as disagreements over strategic business decisions, money/valuation, sales of equity ownership, lack of performance, or deteriorating personal relationships. These disputes can be costly and negatively impact ongoing business. We can help you resolve these difficult disputes and ensure that your interests are protected.
While ownership disputes usually cannot be altogether avoided, there should be agreements and mechanisms in place, before the dispute arises, which govern ownership disputes in a timely and low cost manner. Most businesses with two or more owners should have company bylaws or an operating agreements that sets forth, by contract, the expectations, duties, and obligations of the owners, and provides for how disputes are to be resolved. We can draft bylaws or operating agreements that are tailored to your specific business needs, and the needs of its owners.
