- Fraud and misrepresentation in the purchase, sale, or merger of businesses
- Breach of fiduciary duty and self-dealing by officers, directors, managers, owners, shareholders and partners
- Tortious interference with contracts or business expectancies
- Oppression of minority shareholders
- Fraudulent transfer of business assets
- Misappropriation of company trade secrets and proprietary information by employees
- Breach of contract
- Disputes concerning control of closely-held businesses, including family businesses;
- Disputes concerning non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements.
Our attorneys have a particular interest, expertise and experience in representing clients in business disputes that overlap with employment law issues. For example, we often represent lawyers in compensation disputes with their former law firm employers, which also involve disputes over the firm’s partnership or shareholder agreement and valuation of the lawyer’s equity interest in his or her former firm. Similarly, TMLG frequently represents executives and high-level managers in employment disputes which raise issues implicating corporate governance.
