When shareholder disagreements occur, there are a wide variety of legal
options that can be taken to resolve the matter. While taking the case
to trial may be effective, it is often expensive and can financially hurt
the business, as well as damage their public image and relationships with
shareholders. Because of this, our initial options are always to use alternative
dispute resolution before litigating. Due to its cost-saving advantage
and effectiveness, direct negotiation is always the best route to take.
In addition to this, mediation and arbitration are also able to resolve
the matter to both parties' satisfaction.
If one or both sides are unwilling to compromise, then
business litigation may become necessary. Our experienced litigators at Patterson, P.C. have
the skills and tools to pursue any of these options.
