Business Dissolution & Litigation

Business Dissolution & Litigation Attorneys in Rochester

Protecting the Interests of Your Business

Many factors can lead to a dispute among partners, members, or shareholders, or even to the need to end the business by dissolution of your partnership, limited liability company (LLC), or corporation. Whether it is a difference of opinion, a growing personal tension, or a different view or vision about the direction of the business, these situations can often be hard to avoid and potentially insurmountable. While you may not be able to avoid the conflict itself, you can control how you address it and how far you will let the other side take you—and with the right attorney, how much of the asset you retain.

We understand that you worked hard to build your business. You sacrificed time with your family and personal funds to make your business a success. At one point, you also entered the business with one or more partners who shared the same vision of success. It can be frustrating when an ownership team can no longer see eye-to-eye, but to protect your and the business’s interests and assets, you will need to take decisive action, otherwise, you risk losing everything. You will know when it is time to make the necessary business decision you never contemplated—to end things as they are and move forward in the right direction. We can help you navigate that course strategically.

It can be easy to become overwhelmed by unrealistic hypotheticals when facing a potential business dissolution, or “business divorce.” Our Rochester business dissolution & litigation lawyers can help you understand what legal solutions may be available to you as you consider how to handle an ongoing dispute involving company owners. We are familiar with how these matters are best resolved and, if necessary, adjudicated should they proceed to litigation; and we can help you strategize and negotiate to protect your interests and assets and achieve the best outcome. The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. has experience handling partnership disputes, LLC disputes, dissolutions and shareholder disputes, among other corporate litigation.

If you are experiencing a business ownership conflict, we can help by:

  • Conducting an initial assessment of your situation to help determine reasonable goals
  • Devise potential strategies and paths forward to efficiently achieve those goals
  • Serve as your unemotional, detached, and level-headed advisor who can help safeguard the fruits of your efforts

Do not wait to contact us online or call (585) 294-0303. The sooner we get involved in an emerging dispute involving business owners, the better.

Working to Resolve Disputes Pre-Litigation

While we are prepared to help litigate or arbitrate any business divorce should the situation call for it, the reality is that going to court is expensive, time-consuming, and exhausting. It will also likely result in further aggression, resentment, and unpleasantness between you and your business collaborators.

It is more than likely that everyone involved in the conflict agrees that a company cannot continue under its current ownership and/or management structure. You will need to find some path forward, one that safeguards your interests in and contributions to the business. In some situations, a mutually agreeable solution can be found without resorting to litigation. We are great at helping clients devise the best business resolution for each situation. Early guidance from us can help you clearly identify your individual goals and assist you in developing a strategy where you will know what decision to make at each crossroad, as you seek to resolve the conflict and disputes. Our team is adept at deescalating and resolving disputes in pursuit of these types of positive results. Avoiding litigation will save you money and time. But we are equally adept at position you to achieve the proper outcome for you, should arbitration or litigation be unavoidable. The earlier we partner with you, the better positioned you will be.

Conducting Business Appraisals

One of the points of contention in a potential business divorce is the valuation of the company and its assets. Obtaining accurate appraisals will often be essential as buyout negotiations and other forms of business divorce litigation play out. We are experienced with working with professional real estate and business appraisers and can help you procure accurate estimates that will bring you closer to achieving your goals in a business divorce.

We Are Prepared to Handle Every Facet of a Business Dissolution

Business dissolutions can quickly become complex, labyrinthine affairs requiring thorough legal knowledge of the relevant state and federal laws. In addition to resolving conflicts between business owners, a business divorce may become further convoluted as a result of dissenting shareholders or the need to meet government regulatory compliance. Our Rochester business dissolution & litigation attorneys at The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. will work to ensure your interests are protected throughout the course of a business divorce, no matter what obstacles you face.
