Llc Partnership Shareholder Disputes

New York Internal Business Dispute Lawyer

Corporations, limited liability companies (LLC), and partnerships are creatures of statute. Provisions in the laws of the state in which the business is created set forth rules about the management and operation of the business and the rights and obligations of the business owners and managers, such as how the owners vote on business matters, elect and remove the managers and combine with other businesses.

In addition to the rules laid out by statute, the shareholders, LLC members and partners of a business typically enter into detailed written contracts that outline who will be directors or managing members, provide special rules as to how business decisions will be made, set forth limits on the transfer of interests in the business, provide a mechanism for leaving the business and much more.

The interplay between these state statutes and particular contracts are at the center of LLC, partnership and shareholder disputes. At the New York law firm of Arthur R. Lehman, we have more than 30 years of experience successfully resolving complex disputes. Our record of results speaks for itself.

Beyond Breach of Contract

Essentially, most internal company disputes are breach of contract disputes. However, the contracts involved are unique and nuanced. Perhaps a director exceeded his or her power as outlined in articles of incorporation or company bylaws. Perhaps a specific provision was breached that detailed when and where meetings were to be held. Perhaps a shareholder or member is petitioning to dissolve the company. No matter how complex the dispute may be, we can handle it.
