People who invest as a shareholder or enter into a partnership have important rights and interests to protect. Unfortunately, partnership and shareholder disputes are among the most contentious and frequent types of business disputes and litigation. They are often times similar to divorces when small businesses are involved because the owners and their business lives and finances are inextricably intertwined.
At The Byrd Law Firm, common-sense legal advice and work toward a fair resolution can prevent a lawsuit and can even keep a business relationship from falling apart. However, when litigation is necessary, we have the resources and experience necessary to navigate our clients through their partnership or shareholder dispute. This type of shareholder and partnership litigation usually requires the use of injunctive relief including the need to seek temporary injunctions, temporary restraining orders and even receiverships.
Resolution and Litigation
The lawyers at The Byrd Law Firm have unparalleled experience in handling these types of disputes and commonly are able to do so on a contingency fee basis. We have seen minor partnership, shareholder and family owned business disputes rise to the level of unnecessary court litigation.
