There is no shortage of cases involving business break-ups and disputes where one or more owners leave a business. We are the rare litigators that explore all avenues, including innovative solutions, to resolve disputes favorably for our clients so they may avoid the costs of litigation.
We have resolved several disputes (frequently without litigation) involving the departure of owners or top producers involving these professions:
- Real estate brokers
- Diamond dealers
- Outdoor advertising
We have substantial experience representing law firms and lawyers involved in break-ups or departures.
We settled a high stakes lawsuit on behalf of the 50% owner of a prominent billboard company against the other 50% owner that resulted in the parties agreeing to sell the business; we worked with an investment banker and corporate counsel to sell part of the business to Netflix. Learn More
We recently settled a dispute between two partners in an orthodontics practice where our client successfully retained the business.
What Judges Say
“Greg has appeared before me while I was on the bench and as a mediator and an arbitrator. I have always found him to be well-prepared, articulate, an excellent writer, and a formidable advocate for his clients. In one recent matter, Greg appeared before me for weekly telephonic hearings spanning several months where he frequently found creative solutions to an evolving set of problems in connection with the implementation of a complex settlement.”
- Dickran Tevrizian, United States District Judge, retired
What Counsel Say
“I served as transactional counsel in the sale of a business owned by two equal owners. Greg represented one of the owners and was instrumental in helping to reach creative, practical and fair solutions in collaboration with investment bankers, accountants and me to enable a successful nine-figure sale of part of the business.”
