Tolstoy once wrote that “happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The same can be said for closely held businesses and partnerships where disputes can arise between partners in various forms such as “deadlocks” and “squeeze outs.” The survival of the business, however, is perilously tied to resolving those disputes and preserving personal relationships. With some reference to applicable statutes and case law, this seminar will focus on ways to avoid such disputes, for example, with the use of buy-sell agreements and valuation agreements. We will also discuss what to expect when litigation is inevitable in a judicial proceeding, or through an alternative forum such as mediation or arbitration.
