Protecting Your Interests In Disputes Among Business Owners

Co-owning a business or owning an interest in a successful business can be a great way to make the most of your capital. But, there can be difficulties in situations where more than one owner has a say or a stake in critical decisions that could impact performance. Agreement may not be something that can be reached. How do you make sure your investment in the business is respected and that the business is being run properly?

Are Your Questions Being Answered

Beyond merely having competing visions for the direction the company is going in, partners, co-owners and shareholders are not getting straight answers from those managing the business. Requests to review accounting books may be rebuffed or you may be feeling closed out in some other way.

A Defense Against Challenges To How You Are Running The Business

We also provide assistance to the majority owners of businesses when they are faced with challenges from minority owners of the business.

Is It Time To Move On?

Not all disputes among business owners can be resolved amicably. In some cases, the best option is to fairly divide the assets and move one. Our firm can help ensure that your contributions are fairly valued and that you receive your fair share of any liquidation.
