Have Questions?

What should I do if my business has been served with a lawsuit?

If your business is served with a lawsuit, do not ignore it. Notify your insurance carrier, as legal representation may be covered. Engage a qualified commercial litigation attorney as soon as possible to review the claims and discuss your strategy.

Will I be personally liable if my company is sued?

Generally, you are not personally liable for the debts and liabilities of your incorporated business. However, plaintiffs may name company owners individually in a claim to try to recover from personal assets. An attorney can help defend you against individual liability and keep the focus on the company.

Can my company be held liable for the actions of my employees?

Yes, companies can face legal liability based on unlawful actions taken by employees within the scope of their duties. These are called vicarious liability claims. It is critical to consult an experienced commercial litigation lawyer anytime an employee engages in negligent, fraudulent or criminal conduct that could expose the company.

I can't work with my business partner anymore. What are our options?

Most business partnerships begin with excitement and a shared vision. But over time, shifting interests and differing opinions can fracture even the strongest bonds. Suddenly, former allies find themselves in opposition as the business — and their combined livelihoods — hang in the balance.

How we proceed depends on any existing partnership agreement and each partner’s willingness to negotiate reasonably. We may discuss buyout, dissolution, partition, or a complete sale of the business. We can advise on the best approach to severing ties based on your circumstances and goals.
