South Carolina Partnership/Ownership Dispute Lawyers

Business Ownership Litigation Attorneys

The attorneys of the Gilreath Law Firm, P.A., have successfully resolved a number of cases for business owners involved in ownership or partnership disputes. Our clients include majority business owners, those owning a business 50-50 with a partner, and business owners with minority interests.

We have represented family-owned businesses, members of legal and medical practices, and business owners in a wide range of enterprises, including:

  • Retail
  • Manufacturing
  • Real estate
  • Technology

Are You Being Squeezed Out?

Many of our cases involve minority interest owners who are being squeezed out of the company by the majority shareholders or owners of the business. Ownership or partnership disputes are common in family-owned companies and other closely-held businesses. The ultimate objective of the people in control is to eliminate from the enterprise one or more of its owners or participants.

We are extensively familiar with all of the applicable law and the duties owed to the holder of a minority or majority interest in an ownership or partnership dispute. These situations usually arise from greed and a desire for power, personality clashes, marital discord and family quarrels. We have experience in, and have successfully litigated, cases involving all such situations.

If you are the owner of a minority interest in a business enterprise and believe you are being treated unfairly, you may have grounds to file an action to remedy your situation and possibly force the majority owners to purchase your interest at fair market value.

Making Quality Legal Representation Affordable

We typically represent clients in ownership or partnership disputes on a contingency fee basis rather than an hourly fee. Our fee comes as a percentage of the verdict or settlement achieved in your case. We do not get paid unless you do. This arrangement allows business owners in all financial circumstances to pursue a just resolution to a partnership or ownership dispute.
