Our lawyers have a broad range of experience handling corporate matters from the formation of a business to shareholder disputes, governance issues, to changes in ownership structure and dissolution. We assist in the preparation of operating agreements, shareholder agreements, buy/sell agreements, by-laws, and other vital documents so that the company model accurately reflects the desire of its owners. The needs and structure of companies can change. We pride ourselves on maintaining relationships with our clients for the life of a business. We can help make necessary changes and provide advice so your company can stay in front of the ever changing business landscape.
Often business owners, directors, or officers need assistance in handling internal disputes. HSSM has broad experience in helping these key members of a company understand their legal rights and responsibilities. What are your rights as a minority shareholder? What duties do you have as a director or officer? What do you need to do before filing a claim against a controlling shareholder, officer, or director? Often disputes can be resolved by simply better understanding these issues. In the event issues cannot be resolved amicably, we handle all aspects of litigation or arbitration.
