Partner Shareholder Disputes


Business Dispute Counsel in New Jersey, and in New York


It is a fact of business life that disputes often arise among the owners of even the most successful businesses. These disputes arise in corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies and they require a law firm that is aggressive while being sensitive to the demands of the business itself. A poor economic climate, disappointing results, and changes in family circumstances can all provide fertile ground for disagreements between the owners of a business, whether partners, shareholders or limited liability company members, leading to the need for the assistance of an experienced lawyer during complicated partnership shareholder disputes or partnership dissolutions.

Leveraging nearly 20 years of legal experience, our firm is able to address the various legal issues relating to these disputes or to the divorcing of business partners who are unable to resolve key disagreements.
