Breaking up a business (“business dissolution”) is often complicated and highly emotional. The advice of knowledgeable counsel can make all of the difference between a prolonged, expensive litigation with a poor outcome and prompt, reasonable resolution.
Disputes among co-owners of a business, whether partners, LLC members or shareholders, can include disagreements over operating responsibilities, the division of assets and liabilities, ownership of intellectual property, future competition, and future ownership and management after break-up. Our attorneys can assist you in protecting your interests, help you understand any existing contracts, obligations and liabilities and help you comply with the legal and regulatory requirements of dissolution.
Resolving disputes short of expensive litigation is usually preferable, but is not always possible. Because Burg Simpson attorneys are well-known as trial attorneys, they bring that leverage and their experience to your negotiations, helping you avoid and resolve disputes before they reach the courtroom if possible.
When a business dissolution escalates to litigation, Burg Simpson’s experience, strength, and resources are available to powerfully advocate the client’s position to the judge or jury.
