Shareholder and Partner Disputes
Individuals, including family members, regularly form business ventures. Generally, upon formation of the venture the owners are in agreement on major matters, but as time passes they face changing goals and aspirations for the business venture. These changed goals can often lead to disagreements among the owners. Unless these disagreements are resolved in an efficient manner they can result in demoralization of employees, unnecessary trouble and expense to the business, and possible costly litigation. The basic cornerstone of any new or existing business venture is the Shareholder/Owner Agreement that memorializes the agreements of the owners concerning buy-ins, buy-outs, finance, operations and dispute resolution. Mr. Raines works with clients to avoid disputes through the use of property drafted Shareholder/Owner Agreements and if they do arise to keep the dispute from escalating into litigation and to resolve them in a fair, cost efficient manner that minimizes the stress on the business and its employees.
