Disagreements between shareholders can endanger the future of a business. Owner and shareholder disputes can be expensive, time-consuming and extremely disruptive to business operations. At Bernstein & Feldman, P.A., we are lawyers and business owners who understand the importance of resolving disputes and maintaining operations.
We represent business owners and businesses throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C. After reviewing your case, we will discuss whether mediation/arbitration or litigation is the better option for your business.
Experienced Counsel When The Business Is At Stake
Preventing disputes between shareholders is typically easier than resolving them in the future. With the appropriate contracts in place from the outset, the risk of disputes is minimized. In addition, if a dispute does arise, the terms of the contract will likely reduce any potential damage to the company.
We can assist your business with contracts for matters such as:
- Business dissolution
- Breach of fiduciary duty by board members, partners or shareholders
- Closely or privately held company ownership transition
- Confidentiality agreements
- Terms for selling stock
- Voting trust provisions
- Valuation provisions for the death, disability or retirement of a principal
Minority-majority shareholder disputes are another common reason for business litigation. Our attorneys can protect the rights of minority or majority shareholders. We have experience with both sides of these types of legal disputes.
