Strong Representation For Partnership And Shareholder Disputes

A partnership dispute can turn a promising business enterprise into a toxic energy drain. If you are engaged in a partnership dispute or see one on the horizon, attorney Bryan P. Murphy is here to help you explore your rights and options. He has 30 years of experience handling complex business litigation for clients in Portland and throughout Oregon.

When Business Partnerships Go Bad

Many different types of disputes can flare up between business partners. Some of the most common involve:

  • Major business decisions
  • Leadership roles
  • Pay and compensation
  • Employment decisions
  • Breach of contract accusations

When you established this partnership, your interests were tightly aligned with your partners' interests. Now that things have degenerated, it is important to protect your own interests, even against theirs. Whether the business survives this dispute or not, you must protect yourself from avoidable risk, liability and expense, while not giving ground to unreasonable demands from your partners.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Carefully drafted agreements can limit the possibility of partnership and shareholder disputes from arising, sparing you significant time, expense and worry.

Resolving Shareholder Disputes

Attorney Bryan P. Murphy handles a wide range of shareholder disputes, including those between equal owners, between minority and majority shareholders, and between shareholders and company management. Shareholder disputes can arise for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Disagreements over shareholder dividends
  • Accusations of fraud and self-dealing
  • Disputes over voting rights

If not properly addressed, a shareholder dispute can disrupt business operations, even to an irreversible extent. By proactively discussing your dispute with an experienced attorney, you can limit the lasting damage while protecting your own interests.
