Shareholder and business partnership disputes can be every bit as emotional and volatile as a marital divorce. For example:
- One brother in a family business does all the work while the other one rarely shows up, has addiction problems and is generally a drain on the business. Yet, because the brothers are 50/50 partners in the firm, they split the profits down the middle.
- The stockholders in a corporation are at odds. Some want to sell the business to an investor with deep pockets. Others want to retain control and continue to run the corporation themselves.
At Dunn Lambert, LLC, we have long provided the transactional services required when the principals in a business disagree on how to run the company. (See our corporate divorce practice area page and Richard Lambert's compelling account of a corporate divorce.) Now we also provide the ability to litigate business partnership and shareholder disputes.
Just as a divorce lawyer does, our litigation attorneys work to achieve a fair settlement agreement outside of court. However, when the opposition refuses to be reasonable, we will take your case to trial. In fact, we find that an aggressive and strategic approach to litigation often encourages agreeable settlement terms.
Litigation is a battle. Do not go into it without being properly armed. Not every attorney has the skill and experience to handle complex business partnership and shareholder disputes. We do.
