Business divorce happens for all types of reasons. Some of the most common are theft or fraud by one or more of the partners, members or shareholders. Theft can consist of stealing business opportunities, self-dealing, cooking the books, providing friends or family products or services below cost and stealing intellectual property of the business.
With over 25 years of experience litigating complex partnership and shareholder disputes, the lawyers at Sadis and Goldberg have the experience and expertise to obtain the results you expect and deserve. For example, we recently won a major victory for our client in Stavroulakis v. Bareburger Group LLC et. al., Index No. 653478/2015 (N.Y. County – J. Kornreich). In this case we represented the plaintiff – Mr. John Stavroulakis. Mr. Stavroulakis’s business partners improperly cut Stavroulakis out of the “Bareburger” hamburger franchise business that he had co-founded. By improperly removing Mr. Stavroulakis from the business, the court found that the defendants had breached their fiduciary duties to Mr. Stavroulakis and had fraudulently conveyed the assets of the business to themselves. The case settled for a confidential sum approximately four weeks after obtaining the summary judgment decision.
We have had numerous successful outcomes for our clients in all types of business divorce cases. We are so confident of our abilities that we regularly handle business divorce cases on a full contingency basis and offer free consultations.
