Resolving Distressed Corporate Divorce Disputes through Litigation and/or Court Annexed Mediation and Arbitration

Ownership disputes in private and family owned businesses can be as emotional and contentious as marital divorce actions. These “business divorces” often involve complex legal and personal issues that were not anticipated by the business’ founders and thus are not the subject of an operating or shareholder agreement, buy-sell agreement, or other contract. In most cases, the parties will be better served by attempting mediation as an alternative to lengthy and expensive litigation.
