Partner And Shareholder Disputes
Many business problems emanate from unclear contracts — partnership agreements and shareholder agreements that are not drafted properly on the front end. Sometimes these agreements don’t contain language about exit strategies, definitive buy-sell components or other key ingredients that should be present in what we call a “prenuptial for business.”
