Partnership and Shareholder Disputes Attorney

When the shareholders or partners of a business cannot resolve their disputes about the operation of the business, a business divorce may be necessary. Just like a divorce breaks up a couple within a marriage, a business divorce will break up the relationships within a business. A business divorce may occur when one partner is bought out by the others, or when a lawsuit or many lawsuits are filed against the partners or owners, or when a dispute arises between and among the partners or owners of the business.

Business divorces can be extremely complex particularly in circumstances when there is acrimony between the partners or shareholders of a business or when the agreement between the shareholders or owners does not embody the complete understanding between the parties. If you are discussing a wind down of your business or a separation from your business partners, it is important to work with an attorney that has experience in business divorces and that knows how to achieve a business divorce inside and outside of the courtroom.

How to Obtain a Business Divorce

A business divorce will often involve disputes between the partners or shareholders of a business commonly related to mismanagement or disputes over profits and compensation that must be resolved. Ultimately, the way you obtain a business divorce will depend on the type of business entity, the law that applies to it, the agreements and contracts between the parties, and the willingness of the parties to remain reasonable throughout the process.

The parties involved in a business divorce can attempt to resolve their disputes first through mediation or arbitration. While this may result in the dissolution of a business, a sale of the business or part of the business or one party leaving the business, these forms of alternative dispute resolution are less combative and typically more affordable than litigation.

Every business divorce case will involve unique facts and circumstances, but any one case may involve:

  • Selling the business
  • Dissolving the business
  • Reorganizing the company
  • Liquidating the assets of the business
  • Buying out one or more partners
  • The forcible termination of one or multiple partners

Regardless of the nature of the disagreements within the business, a Miami business divorce lawyer can help you through the process.
