Keeping A Business Productive While Managing Disputes
What happens to a business when one member of a two-member limited liability company attempts to freeze the other member out of the business? There are myriad responses and strategies for determining the answer to questions such as “who keeps the company?” or “how are decisions made?”
These are complex cases because the business is still running, and business decisions have to be made while the legal battle is raging. At The Postlethwaite Law Firm PLLC, attorney Preston J. Postlethwaite understands there’s a corollary objective that requires a fair hand with the other side. He vigorously advocates for his clients while remaining keenly focuses on the bigger picture, which is the life of the business entity. Even if the fighting is in court, a business still needs to make decisions.
