A closely held corporation depends on trust and day-to-day cooperation among the owners. When it is no longer possible to continue to run the business on that basis, a “business divorce” may become necessary.
At NachtLaw, P.C., we help our clients protect their investments and their businesses through savvy legal counsel and representation. Contact us at our offices in Michigan to discuss the issues facing your closely held corporation.
Handling Dissolution And Buyout Disputes
Some disputes within closely held corporations occur because the business is not going well, while others occur when the business is profitable but the owners no longer want to work together.
In either case, our business lawyers can explore your options and help you pursue an advantageous resolution of your business divorce or dispute. We handle business dissolution disputes — whether you are seeking to force dissolution or avoid dissolution — as well as buyout disputes.
Often, these disputes have to be resolved in court. If you want to win, you have to be prepared to do what is necessary to get results. Only then is it possible to achieve a fair outcome through a negotiated settlement. If your case needs to continue through the litigation process, we have the experience to skillfully advocate for your position.
If your closely held corporation is going through a business divorce or other governance dispute, don’t hesitate to contact us. We provide legal advice to closely held corporations throughout Michigan from our Ann Arbor, Birmingham and Traverse City offices.
Making Smart Decisions Early On
If you are just starting what you expect will remain a closely held corporation or other business, you should think about how you can maximize the benefits of your business form and avoid costly litigation should the interests of the business owners diverge over time.
The future success of your closely held corporation depends on laying the right foundation and creating the right architecture now. Our attorneys are highly skilled at helping new businesses adopt appropriate business forms, negotiate buy-sell agreements and take other helpful steps.
