Bexar County Business Litigation Attorney Helping Address Disputes Involving Owners and Partners

Business owners may become involved in multiple types of legal disputes, and in some cases, business litigation may be necessary to ensure that these matters are addressed correctly. Disputes between business partners can often be difficult to resolve, and business owners may also struggle to address disputes with shareholders or investors. These types of disagreements can affect the way a company is managed and an owner's ability to execute a business strategy, and all parties involved will want to ensure that their rights and interests are protected. When these types of disputes arise, owners and partners will want to work with a business law attorney to determine the best ways to proceed.

Geoff Mayfield, Attorney at Law works to provide his clients with an understanding of the laws and legal issues that affect business disputes. He offers strong and effective representation in cases involving disagreements between owners, partners, and shareholders. He can advise parties of their options for resolving disputes using methods such as mediation or arbitration, and he is also prepared to help pursue litigation when necessary. Geoff's 15+ years of legal experience in multiple areas that affect small businesses and other companies ensures that his clients can resolve their legal issues effectively.

Common Types of Business Owner/Partner Disputes

While some disputes involving business owners or partners consist of minor disagreements, others may involve significant legal or financial concerns. Geoff can help determine the best way to approach different types of disputes, including helping the parties work together to find mutually agreeable solutions or taking legal action to protect the interests of owners, partners, shareholders, or a company itself. He can assist with cases involving:

  • Disagreements about the direction of a company - Partners may encounter differences of opinion about how a business should be managed or the business's overall strategy and goals. They may also disagree about the distribution of profits and losses, how business assets should be invested, or whether operations should be expanded in different areas.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty - A business owner is legally obligated to protect the interests of shareholders or investors, and a partner also has a duty to act in the best interests of other partners. An owner or partner may be accused of breaching this duty if they failed to report required information or if they took actions to put their own benefits before the interests of the business.
  • Fraud or embezzlement - Partners or shareholders may need to address illegal activities by an owner or partner. Fraud may include the misrepresentation of information when making business deals, insider trading, or infringement of intellectual property rights. A person may also be accused of stealing or misusing money or assets owned by a business.
  • Business divorce - If business partners cannot resolve their disagreements, they may choose to dissolve their partnership. In these cases, they may need to determine how ownership of business assets will be handled, whether one or more partners will be able to continue conducting business operations, or whether one partner will sell their share of the business to other partners.
