Shareholders, partners, and members of limited liability corporations often find themselves in disputes with other owners, investors, or lenders. Disputes among co-owners of a business, whether partners or shareholders, can include disputes over operating responsibilities, contractual obligations, cash and spending, bills, and ownership shares. These disputes are usually very complex, involving the intricacies of corporate or partnership law.
Such complex commercial disputes require aggressive, powerful, results-oriented advocacy in and out of the courtroom. The Colorado commercial litigation lawyers at Burg Simpson offer their experienced representation to every type of businesses, from Fortune 500 companies to small, family-owned enterprises.

Types of Business Entities
There a number of classifications of business entities. The most common include:
- General partnership – A partnership in which all associates participate fully in the operation of the business, are equally liable for all actions, and share equally in profits and losses, regardless of the actual contributions made.
- Limited partnership – A partnership in which one party (made up of one or more people) called general partners, having unlimited liability, manage the business and, another party (of one or more people) called limited partners, contribute capital and share in the profits.
- Limited liability company – A company in which the members and managers are not liable for a debt or obligation of the company.
- Limited liability partnership – These are partnerships where a partner is not liable for the negligent actions of other partners or employees not under the partner’s supervision. These are organized pursuant to an applicable statute that limits the personal liability of the partners and provides that the partnership is liable as an entity for debts and obligations incurred by the limited liability partnership.
- Corporation – An entity that is treated as a separate, artificial person apart and distinct from the shareholders who own it.
