In many situations, partnership and shareholder disputes arise because key elements were lacking during business formation. Too often, partners fail to enter into agreements that clearly establish the roles and responsibilities of each partner, believing that written contracts are a sign of distrust between participants. In reality, many business disputes could be avoided with thorough, strategic, well-drafted agreements. With decades of experience writing and litigating corporate contracts, our attorneys know how to create agreements that establish parameters for partnerships and allow them to grow effectively.
