Helping You Assert Your Rights and Protect Your Interests

When the co-owners of a business come into conflict, both the business itself and the individual owners can suffer irreversible harm. It is important to act quickly, take stock of the situation and identify solutions so that the business’s assets can be put to the best use.

Seeking Creative Solutions That Enable Clients to Move Forward

Disputes between business owners can be particularly damaging in the context of closely held businesses in which some or all of the owners are actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business. Common reasons for these types of disputes include the following:

  • Some owners do not feel that the other owners are pulling their weight.
  • One owner is accused of taking business assets or using them inappropriately.
  • The owners no longer agree on the general direction of the business.

These disputes may arise between shareholders in a corporation, members of a limited liability company or partners in a partnership. In each case, the organizational documents of the entity and Missouri state law will determine how each owner can protect his or her interests.

Many disputes end in a dissolution of the existing business entity, potentially also involving the formation of one or more new entities and the payment of compensation. Our attorneys are experienced at facilitating this process with our clients’ best interests in mind.
