Partnership/Corporate & Contract Disputes

Dispute Resolution for Connecticut Business Owners

In the current economy, even partnerships and corporations that have been successful for many years may be suffering under collapsing margins. It is common for partners to reassess their worth and value to the business and the entity's value to them in these times, and these personal considerations may lead to partnership disputes.

At Lampert Toohey & Rucci, LLC, we recognize the concerns Connecticut business owners are facing. Our attorneys have a strong background in providing options for contract and partnership dispute resolution. Our goal is to reach an amicable outcome through settlement or negotiation, but if that is not possible, we will proceed toward litigation.

Corporate and Partnership Disputes

When partners reassess their worth, they often find it necessary to make significant changes regarding the future of their business. To resolve a partnership dispute or avoid a potential problem, it is beneficial to involve an experienced attorney.

Our firm represents business owners who wish to negotiate a new salary while striving to save their entity from dissolution. We also work with individuals who choose to cash out their stake by selling to a partner. In this instance, we can draft a buy/purchase agreement that may include non-competition or non-solicitation covenants.

When continuation of the business is no longer feasible or productive, we can also help with the dissolution and windup of a business.

Contract Disputes

Clear, concise business contracts are required when goods or services are needed. Precise planning and language minimize potential for future misunderstanding and liability. However, even with proper planning, contract disputes may still arise. Our firm is prepared to negotiate or litigate on your behalf in all contract-related disputes, including:

  • Nonpayment of obligation
  • Suits on goods sold and delivered
  • Finder's fees
  • Consulting agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements

Business Startup and Organization

In addition to representation for corporate/partnership disputes, we advise on the initial startup and organization of a business. We will draft secretary of state and administrative documents and outline contracts for your new business. Careful planning can not only minimize future liability but also reduce the possibility that a dispute between directors or partners will destroy your business.
