It's not unusual for problems to develop among the equity owners of closely held business entities. Whether your company is organized as a corporation, a partnership or an LLC, errors, misunderstandings or dishonesty by one or more principals can lead to serious difficulties that eventually threaten the viability of the business itself.
Efficient Litigation Counsel in Partnership or Shareholder Disputes
If you need legal advice based on your concern about problems within your business organization, contact M. Ross & Associates, LLC, in Englewood Cliffs. With extensive New Jersey business litigation experience, our attorneys understand the factors that can lead to a falling out among business owners or partners, and can present you with a range of options for succinctly and effectively resolving the issues for yourself, your company and other important long-term personal or professional interests.
Our law firm works with principals in family businesses, closely held corporations, professional partnerships and other privately held companies to protect and defend the various liability risks that can distract you from your daily business obligations, while also casting doubt upon the future of the enterprise. We represent both those clients who need to resort to legal action to protect interests defined in a shareholder agreement or operating agreement and clients who need to respond to allegations of breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty or fraud.
In many cases, what begins as a straightforward civil action for violation of rights under a company's bylaws, operating agreement or shareholder agreement, can turn into a highly complex litigation involving counterclaims and cross-claims with multiple parties. Familiar with the investigative, strategic and adversarial demands that shareholder and partnership disputes can generate, our Bergen County litigation attorneys can help you navigate a path toward a favorable resolution by focusing on the key issues and avoiding the distractions of trivial or unsupported claims and defenses.
