Assertive & Tactful Problem-Solving for Shareholder & Partnership Disputes
Few things can destroy a business faster than disputes between shareholders and business partners. No matter how like-minded the various owners of your company may be, at some point or another there are always going to be disagreements. Some issues may be relatively simple, and the opposing parties may be able to resolve the problem amongst themselves, but other disputes may escalate and require a firm but diplomatic legal approach.
There are a number of ways shareholders and business partners may be required to settle their disputes, depending on the specifics of their company’s bylaws, shareholder agreement, or operating agreement. Various forms of dispute resolution ranging from negotiation to arbitration to litigation may be on the table. Attorneys from The Campbell Law Group will work within the constructs of your company’s agreements regarding dispute resolution to achieve the best possible outcome as it relates to your personal ownership interests and your company’s interests.
Oftentimes, the goal may be to find an equitable resolution that will preserve the business relationship and the company itself. Other times, particularly when a dispute cannot be overcome, a dissolution of the business or forced buy out of one or more of the owners may be necessary.
The Campbell Law Group will work to analyze the circumstances surrounding the dispute as well as your goals in taking action, and help you decide upon and pursue the most effective and reasonable method for dispute resolution.
In situations where the company will be dissolved, we will work to ensure that the process is carried out expeditiously and compliantly.
