The need for a corporate divorce arises when business owners can no longer agree on how to resolve internal disputes concerning business operations. In such cases, the owners of the business often need to break up the business. Often times, a lawsuit or multiple lawsuits are filed against or among the business owners to determine how to break up the business, or in some instances, buying out or “firing” one or more of the business owners. Litigating corporate divorce matters is complex, often emotional, and must be handled by an attorney with extensive experience handling corporate divorce matters. Entire families and generations may be involved with decades of history between them.
