Shareholder Disputes

A Chicago Shareholder Disputes Attorney can Help Protect Your Business by Managing Stakeholder Disputes

Any business with multiple owners — whether a partnership, a limited liability company or a corporation — is an amalgam of people who ostensibly have the same goal. Realistically, however, every stakeholder may have a different idea of what is best for the company. In corporations with multiple shareholders, many of whom are not directly involved in the company, what is best for the company may conflict with what is best for individuals’ personal finances. Disputes among stakeholders can gridlock company management and operations, leading to costly delays and missed opportunities. The Chicago shareholder and partnership disputes attorneys of the Clinton Law Firm have represented companies and individual stakeholders in disputes for 20 years. We understand both the law and the practical aspects of running a company. We use our knowledge to efficiently resolve and manage these disputes on behalf of our clients.
