When there are disputes among shareholders and partners, the financial impact can be devastating. The dispute can even lead to claims of misappropriation, fiduciary breaches, fraud and other misconduct. Many times, the future of the entire business is at stake. One of the critical errors that businesses often make when trying to resolve disputes is being hesitant to bring in professional counsel in a timely manner. Sometimes the inclusion of an attorney is viewed as an escalation of the dispute, and so one or more parties will delay in seeking professional help to. However, bringing in legal counsel from the very outset of a dispute can bring new alternatives to the table that can diffuse a dispute before it escalates and causes serious damage on the enterprise.
