Partnership and Shareholder Disputes

Upstate New York Business Dispute Lawyers

Despite the best of intentions at the beginning of a business relationship, things often change. Shareholders and partners who start out with the same goals find themselves at odds over direction or control of the company. Whether you work it out, arrange a buyout or dissolve the business, you need experienced legal guidance and representation.

The Law Offices of Hacker Murphy, LLP, counsels business owners and shareholders in resolution and litigation of internal business disputes. We believe that early intervention can de-escalate conflicts and allow for a negotiated solution, while also positioning you for the possibility of litigation or dissolution.

Hacker Murphy represents business stakeholders and investors in the Capital District, Upstate New York and statewide. Our accomplished legal team, led by partners David R. Murphy and James E. Hacker, brings decades of courtroom success as well as results in the mediation and arbitration of these tense and tangled disagreements.

Albany Business Ownership Dispute Lawyers

We have handled every scenario, from a "falling out" between partners to calculated power plays: disagreements about profits or management, disputes about new partners or investors, minority shareholder oppression and freeze-out attempts, or a mutual decision to divvy up the assets (and liabilities) of an enterprise that has run its course.

The possible remedies are just as diverse: agreeing to disagree, reorganizing the entity or revising the partnership or operating agreement, a negotiated buyout or a court-ordered dissolution, a mediated break-up or full-fledged "business divorce" litigation.

We take the time to understand the scope and nature of the dispute and to first explore out-of-court solutions. In the event that this ends up in court, you have a seasoned team of business litigators who can protect your personal interests and the business entity.
