BUSINESS OWNER DISPUTES

While no business owner chooses to experience a contentious business divorce, differences between individuals sharing ownership of a business often develop over time.  The conflict between owners, especially when the owners are also friends or family members, can have a chilling effect on the businesses’ bottom line and the owners’ ability to make important business decisions. Internal conflict can also take the enjoyment out of running a business. When the separation of ownership appears necessary or imminent, Rose Law Firm stands ready to help.
