Shareholder / Member Disputes
Disputes among shareholders are among the biggest threats to the stability of a business. If managed improperly, disagreements may escalate, leading to deep divisions among owners, possible exhaustion of company assets, and potential business failure.
In matters of shareholder and member disputes, Kerr Russell strives always to preserve the continued vitality of the business. Having represented majority, minority and equal percentage shareholders in all stages of disputes, we are sensitive to the dynamics involved. Our attorneys develop and present a range of options, factoring in the parties’ rights as set forth in shareholder documents, along with percentage of ownership, roles and importance to the organization, and multiple other factors. Our goal is to achieve long-lasting resolutions in a speedy and non-confrontational manner, to allow the company and its owners to move forward.
