Corporate & Partnership Disputes
Protect your business by managing stakeholder disputes
Disagreements between business associates and shareholders often arise, whether through disagreement over the direction of the company or how finances are being handled. Sometimes legal action may be required to settle these disputes. The situations that result in or come from a Shareholder dispute can be difficult and may be harmful to your business in many ways if not resolved in an effective and swift manner.
Any business with multiple owners — whether a partnership, a limited liability company or a corporation — is an organization of people who ideally share a common goal. In corporations with multiple shareholders, many of whom may or may not be directly involved, what is best for the company may conflict with what is best for an individuals’ personal finances. Disputes among stakeholders can gridlock company management and operations, leading to costly delays and missed opportunities.
