Many of our corporate attorneys have served as general counsel at privately-held, equity-backed and public corporations. We leverage this experience to effectively counsel both established and emerging businesses as they grow.
Breadth of Experience
The business lawyers at Wilchins Cosentino & Novins handle a broad range of disputes among shareholders and business owners, such as disputes over ownership, management and control. Disagreements among owners commonly involve alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, the rights and obligations of minority owners, minority “freeze outs,” shareholder derivative suits, the enforcement of organizational documents and actions seeking to pierce the corporate veil.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Frequently our corporate attorneys provide services concerning matters that may be resolved through alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration. We also function as a mediator to family businesses and other privately held businesses when difficult questions must be addressed and when better communication between owners is needed.
