The dissolution of a business entity may be required when major shareholders or business partners can no longer do business together.

The experienced business attorneys at Murphy Cordier Casale Axel PLC assist our clients with the negotiation of a buy-out or dissolution of a joint venture business.

Partnership Dissolution or a “Business Divorce”

In many ways, a business dissolution is a “business divorce,” where the partners divvy up the assets and debts and strike out on their own separate paths.

There are voluntary or involuntary partnership dissolutions. A voluntary dissolution is one in which the partners and/or shareholders mutually agree to dissolve the business. in contrast, when business partners do not agree on the terms of dissolution, it is deemed to be involuntary, and one partner may file suit to dissolve the business entity.
