Strategic Counsel Focused On Your Concerns
Disputes between partners take many forms. Perhaps one partner sees a different vision for the company. Perhaps one partner has breached his or her duty or authority. Mr. Burgoon will take a careful look at the partnership agreements, operating agreements or corporate by-laws to determine what standards were put in place to help partners resolve possible disputes. In many cases, straight negotiation or mediation can help partners come to a mutually agreeable resolution without the need for partnership litigation.
If partners cannot resolve their issues amicably, Mr. Burgoon is fully prepared to protect his clients’ rights in commercial litigation, if necessary. Alternatively, he can assist with “business divorce,” or the dissolution or sale of the business if that is in fact the best option. He understands the often personal nature of such a move, and remains sensitive to clients’ concerns throughout the process.
