Shareholder Agreements & Disputes
Shareholder agreements (between owners of shares in corporations), operating agreements(between owners of membership interests in limited liability companies) and partnership agreements (between partners in a partnership) are legal documents that outline company operations and define the rights, liabilities and obligations of shareholders, members and partners. Maura McCarthy Bulman has extensive experience negotiating and drafting shareholders’ agreements, operating agreements and partnership agreements and representing shareholders, members and partners in disputes.
A shareholders’ agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement will set forth procedures to handle internal disputes, the dissolution of a business or partnership, and the transfer of shares and ownership interests in the business.
It is important to have an experienced business attorney draft a shareholders’ agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement for your business while the owners are getting along and before a dispute arises so that the terms agreed to by the owners will guide how a future dispute will be resolved.Having a written shareholders’ agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement may allow you to resolve disputes without litigation.Not having a written shareholders’ agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement increases the likelihood of litigation in the event of a dispute and increases the likelihood of having a judge decide the fate of your business and your ownership interest in the business.
In the event that a dispute arises between shareholders, members or partners, Maura McCarthy Bulman is an experienced business litigation attorney who can help you to resolve your dispute.
