Oregon Business Dissolution Lawyer
When a business is created, hopes run high and expectations are rosy. Unfortunately, in a down economy, many businesses founder on the rocks. When this happens, shareholders or members of a limited liability company will look to each other to fulfill the obligations which were agreed to when the business started. When the business is deadlocked, the company may need to consider dissolution and allocation of losses and profits.
Corporate Divorce Proceedings
The dissolution of a corporate entity, from a family-owned business to a large corporation, can be very similar to the breakup of a family. There are issues of control, ownership and distribution of property, as well as potential payments, all of which can be emotionally charged. Corporate divorce can become bitter and divisive, with conflict at the center of everything.
In these situations, it is critical to retain experienced counsel to identify the best business goals and to devise and implement a plan which will resolve the dispute while protecting your interests with an objective, business-oriented perspective.
If you are a shareholder, a member of a limited liability company or another individual involved in a corporate dissolution (corporate divorce), you want an experienced attorney to help you take the right steps to protect your interests. When corporate divorce leads to litigation, the results can expensive and time-consuming. You want a lawyer who understands the process, someone who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.
