In the Beginning:

Typically, when a new business is formed, the partners agree with each other as to how the business should be managed and run. During this honeymoon stage, the partners/shareholders usually enter into shareholder agreements regarding buy-ins, buy-outs, operations, finance, and other relevant matters. They work hard to make a business grow. A good shareholder agreement is the most significant building block on which to base the business since a strong agreement is essential to helping the business run smoothly.

When Things Start To Go Wrong:

When your New Jersey business has growing pains, succession issues, financial disagreements, corporate governance challenges, or fallout from break-up, call The Rubinstein Law Firm, LLC. The partners of The Rubinstein Law Firm, LLC are trial attorneys, which enables them to focus on shareholder & partnership litigation with the benefit of knowing how the case will be presented in court if the parties are unable to reach an agreeable resolution.

Resolving The Problem:

If the shareholder or partnership agreement is written properly, describing the rights, responsibilities and roles of the parties, your partnership or shareholder dispute may be resolved promptly and efficiently, without resort to litigation.

Unfortunately, many shareholder and partnership disputes have a great deal of emotion to them and can be bitter and acrimonious. One of the biggest threats to the stability of a business is disagreements within management and/or among shareholders. Internal disputes can be as costly as major litigation and far more devastating. Bitter disputes among owners can demoralize the organization, stifle growth, and use up the company’s assets. If a dispute ends up going to court, the litigation can be extremely costly – emotionally and financially. In addition, judicial and legislative remedies are often limited and inequitable. Worst case, protracted court battles can drain a company of all of its assets and render it insolvent.
