A business built from the ground up is more than just “business.” A conflict with another owner of the business, a threat to the business from the government, or the discovery that a newly purchased business is not worth what you paid can be devastating. Sherrets Bruno & Vogt, LLC, has experience helping owners of businesses of all sizes, from an LLC with two members to a multimillion-dollar corporation, resolve disputes involving ownership, value and contracts.
Valuation disputes arise after the purchase of a business or when one owner of a business wants to either leave or remove other owners. Our attorneys at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt have experience helping business owners in these and many other situations. We understand the laws governing business ownership and have experience working with business valuation experts to establish the foundation necessary to prove the value of a business.
Many small businesses are created with two individuals each owning 50% of the stock. When each owns a full half and the owners disagree, there is no way for either party to make a decision without the agreement of the other. At Sherrets Bruno & Vogt, we have experience resolving such disputes through litigation as well as utilizing mediation or arbitration to help the owners move forward.
Breach Of Contract
Whether a contract is for the purchase or sale of a business or the purchase or sale of goods and services necessary for the ongoing operation of a business, the failure of one party to fulfill their obligations under a contract can threaten a company’s ability to remain in business. The attorneys at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt have experience representing both buyers and sellers of businesses in enforcing contracts to purchase a business. Sherrets Bruno & Vogt also has extensive experience litigating contract breaches by customers and vendors.
