Whether business conflicts involve partners, shareholders, or members, owner disputes can quickly escalate. At Stibbs & Co., we work diligently to protect the rights of our clients while preserving the value of the underlying enterprise. Our attorneys understand that these important business matters often involve heightened personal feelings, which is why we provide the utmost professionalism so that all parties can focus on the key issues.
Disagreements among the individuals who run a business are often complex with various factors at play. Stibbs & Co. works to minimize the time and expense devoted to these matters by resolving them through consensus. However, when necessary, we are prepared to litigate in cases related to:
- Alleged breach of fiduciary duty
- Alleged misappropriation of funds
- Alleged improper contact with a competitor
- Issues arising from sudden departures
- Resale of shares
- Alleged contract or partnership agreement violations
Our attorneys have the skill and discretion to overcome the extraneous matters that complicate intra-business disputes and guide clients toward a favorable outcome.
We are mindful of the need for minimizing risks for your business. In nearly every case, businesses function best when clear rules exist to govern partner and shareholder conduct. Stibbs & Co. helps new and existing companies create agreements specifically tailored to the needs and priorities of business owners. Through diligent preparation, your operation can set procedures for dealing with contingencies that might arise suddenly. A small investment of time and effort can avoid major problems that could impact your business in the future.
