Partnership and Shareholder Disputes

When individuals first enter into a business partnership, they typically hope and expect that everything will work out.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.  In today’s business climate, partnership and shareholder disputes are more common than you may think.  Although these disputes can sometimes be amicably resolved through settlement discussions or mediation, there are other times when litigation or arbitration is the only way for the dispute to be concluded.  Because partnership and shareholder disagreements are often complicated, you need an experienced business litigator on your side.  The attorneys at Bruno Law handle partnership and shareholder disputes on behalf of clients in a variety of industries and business structures, including general partnerships, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), and corporations.  Some common reasons for partnership and shareholder disputes include:

  • Disagreements about business management.
  • Allegations of breach of fiduciary duty or misconduct by one of the partners.
  • Disputes over allocation and distribution of finances.
  • “Squeeze-out” tactics by majority members or shareholders.
  • Partnership dissolution.
  • Workload imbalance between the partners or shareholders.
  • Disagreements about the terms of the partnership or shareholder agreement.

If you are involved in a partnership or shareholder dispute, the attorneys at Bruno Law will work with you to determine the best course of action to address your specific situation.  We will consider many factors in determining the best avenue to resolve your dispute, including the language of the partnership agreement, operating agreement, or shareholder agreement, the financial state of the business, the length of the partnership’s existence, the current relationship between the parties, and your personal short- and long-term goals.  No matter what the size of the dispute is, we will advise you of your options and will fight to ensure that your assets and interests are properly protected.
