Business Litigation


Business Ownership/Control/Dissolution Disputes

Business operations sometimes become divisive.  Disagreements among partners or business owners typically result from one party’s failure to honor fiduciary duties or the failure to comply with contractual obligations of the partnership agreement, corporate formation agreement, or other contract relating to the business.  Oftentimes these disagreements stem from secret business dealings which are at odds with the best interests of the company or its shareholders.  Strauss Law Group has represented businesses, owners, shareholders and other parties in business ownership, control and dissolution disputes in both state and federal court.  Strauss Law Group holds a successful track record representing both individuals and businesses in these matters.
