When relations among co-owners of privately held businesses deteriorate to the point where they can no longer work together, they often require a business divorce. O’Toole Scrivo’s business divorce lawyers understand what it means for our clients to win, and we obtain successful results by being ready for trial and trying cases to conclusion.
Our business divorce lawyers understand the intricacies of the laws governing the internal affairs of closely held corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies. Disputes we handle include:
- Judicial dissolution proceedings on behalf of majority and minority owners.
- Dissenting shareholder proceedings, derivative suits, and books and records proceedings.
- Other litigation among co-owners of companies in a wide variety of industries, including real estate, construction, manufacturing, finance, wholesale and retail operations, auto dealerships, service companies, and more.
While we are always prepared for trial, we analyze claims from the inception of the engagement to identify strategies that may lead to a favorable resolution without the need for litigation. Our business divorce lawyers work closely with clients to explore and execute strategies that can eliminate the distraction, expense, and escalation of hostilities that inevitably accompany litigation. Key to the business divorce group’s record of success in resolving such disputes through early intervention is their reputation as attorneys well-equipped and ready to seek relief if negotiations collapse.
