Southern California/Orange County Partnership Agreement & Shareholder Dispute Attorneys
Home to some of the most creative minds in the country, and the most audacious deals, stakeholders come together to form business ventures that provide a unique deliverable or disrupt an existing industry. However, as these new ventures take off, one or a small group of partners or shareholders may decide to act in their own best self-interest, at the expense of the business. What may have been initial disagreements as to how the business should continue may quickly devolve into a legal battle for the control of the business and its assets.
Partnership or Shareholder Disputes Can Always Happen
Partnership disputes or shareholder disputes can happen between anyone, even former trusted friends, colleagues, or family members, and can threaten the continued operation of the business. As specialized businesses in Houston strive to provide exceptional products and services to customers, a partner or shareholder who acts illegally to take benefits for him or herself at the expense of the business jeopardizes the very existence of the company. Vethan Law Firm’s partnership and shareholder attorneys in Southern California & Orange County first seek to stop the wrongdoer from further harming the business, and then will aggressively go after the bad actor to compensate the business and the other shareholders or business partners for the economic harm inflicted on the company by the self-dealing partner or shareholder.
Although not every partnership dispute may be avoided, when several parties decide to pool their resources to form a new business venture, certain steps must be taken to avoid very contentious and very personal shareholder dispute or partnership dispute litigation. Speak with VLF’s attorneys regarding
- Launching a startup with an agreed upon partnership agreement or shareholder agreement;
- Structuring and reviewing partnership agreements and shareholder agreements to incorporate mandatory buy back provisions, avoiding community property consequences to the management of the business;
- Buyback and supermajority provisions to maintain steady corporate operations; and
- Deciding on management, financial exposure of the business, and control of the venture, and structuring appropriate governing mechanisms within the company, to identify a few concerns.
