Management Disputes

Our firm advances legal solutions that preserve businesses

We understand that it is not unusual for closely held companies to experience internal conflict. Just as business environments evolve, so too do business partners in both family and non-family owned enterprises. The dynamics of businesses and business environments – with opportunities and threats, as well as changing external needs – create shifts that can threaten the status quo of an enterprise. Sometimes, the things that made a company successful in the past can be at the core of disagreement between principals.

Our firm works with key players who must resolve conflict within their companies. Abraham Mathew has extensive career experience – including his work for a multinational bank, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, and as a lawyer since 1996 – working for defendants and plaintiffs, including family businesses, board members, minority owners and chief executives.

Whether the situation involves conflicts of interest, forced sales, theft or a need to investigate financial records, our firm can quickly and accurately assess complex situations to devise the most cost-effective and fair legal strategy. Sometimes that involves litigation, but more often mediation. Most important, we employ effective strategies in order to win, even while preserving assets, ensuring a fair division of those assets, and establishing a solid legal structure that will prevent ongoing issues going forward.
