Business break up for many reasons, whether it’s because of poor profitability, disputes among stakeholders, deaths, natural disasters or simply a mutual decision among owners. Either way, it’s essential to have an experienced business law attorney by your side.
Before dissolving your business, it is important to development a comprehensive exit strategy that will protect you from continuing liability but effectively resolve all remaining business issues with little economical impact.

• Secret business dealings
