Business’ partnerships always begin with the best of intentions, but similar to other relationships and marriage a few wrong turns can create conflict that cannot be resolved. Diamond McCarthy is experienced in Business Divorce matters, representing owners, investors, shareholders, and other equity stakeholders in business disputes. These matters by nature are stressful, emotional, and consequential. Our attorneys are pragmatic and assertive in both business and legal strategies to help our client accomplish their objectives. Through the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution, litigation, and arbitration proceedings Diamond McCarthy has secured outstanding results pursuing and defending claims on behalf of a client.
Diamond McCarthy has secured significant judgements, verdicts and confidential settlements pursuing claims on behalf of shareholders and limited partners for minority shareholder oppression, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. In pursuing these claims, we use our well regarded forensic team to oversee the investigation of any oppressive conduct by the majority. This has enabled us to obtain buyouts of a minority ownership interest and redemption for fair and reasonable value. Our clients include individual shareholders, private trustees and trust beneficiaries, general and limited partners, and LLC members.
The perspective we have gain in representation of minority shareholders, has assisted us when we represent privately held business entities in defending claims by disgruntled minority owners and defending shareholders, general partners and the private companies.
We have represented a diverse set of clients that include family limited partnerships, real estate investment partnerships, oil and gas companies, software companies, private manufacturers, restaurant chains, and liquor distributorships.
