Business Dissolution & Partnership Disputes

Nothing lasts forever, and businesses are certainly no different. In some cases, businesses dissolve for amiable reasons: like a merger or buyout in which the business carries on under different owners. Receiving a profitable offer for the acquisition of a business is usually seen as a great success for business founders. In other cases, businesses are forced into dissolution due to extended periods of insolvency. Regardless of whether the dissolution of a business is amicable, there are many legal details and contingencies that require experienced business law attorneys.

Business Dissolution Concerns and Scenarios

Even in the most amiable of dissolution scenarios, there are a myriad of complex issues that need to be resolved:

  • Paying off business debts

  • Distribution of assets
  • IRS and state filing and compliance
  • Closing bank accounts

Our business dissolution attorneys in Riverside and Irvine can help you with any aspect of the dissolution process.

Partnership Disputes

Some dissolutions result in one way or another from partnership disputes. Conversely, partnership disputes often arise from disagreements in the process of dissolution. Our business dissolution lawyers have a wealth of experience helping our clients resolve their disputes that arise, including:

  • Partnership agreements and disputes
  • Fraud
  • Breach of contract

We offer business litigation services and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services like mediation and arbitration.

Estate Planning Implications

If the nature or ownership of a business changes, the interests in that former entity will change, as well. If you have an interest in a business that dissolved, you will need to update your estate plan as soon as possible so that it reflects this change. We will help you revise your wills and trust documents to include a more accurate, up-to-date business succession plan.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
