Helping Businesses Through Corporate And 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.
It is common for partners to reassess their worth and value to the business and the entity’s value to them for many different reasons. Whether it’s due to a difficult economy or a sudden rise to success, these considerations, as well as numerous others, have the potential to lead to partnership disputes.
Business Re-evaluations Often Lead To Disputes
When partners re-evaluate their business and its needs, they often find it necessary to make significant changes regarding the future of their business. To help avoid potential problems or to assist in resolving an existing dispute, it is crucial to involve an attorney who is experienced in corporate and partnership disputes.
We represent clients across the spectrum — from business owners who wish to negotiate a new salary to others who are fighting to save their company from dissolution. Whether individuals want to cash out their stake by selling to a partner or they are looking to buy out their partner, no matter what the situation, our seasoned lawyers will assertively address our clients’ needs.
Some of the issues that cause disputes include:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Breach of contract
- Shareholder disputes
- Compensation disagreements
- Workload disbursement
We can help with drafting and review contracts and agreements such as:
- Buy/sell agreement
- Noncompetition or nonsolicitation covenants
