Helping Businesses Resolve Issues

A private business dispute can threaten to derail your livelihood and your financial stability. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, our attorneys understand the value of resolving these issues efficiently, without compromising on your principles. For decades, we have provided our business litigation services to the northeast, including across Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Finding Ways To Resolve Disputes

A business dispute can be lengthy and costly. Ideally, it would be resolved without litigation, preferably through alternative dispute resolution. That is not always possible, however, so our lawyers will tailor a legal strategy suited to your needs and situation. Our experienced litigation services include:

  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder disputes, including minority shareholder rights
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Contract litigation
  • Copyright and trademark infringement
  • Trade secrets
  • Conflicts between majority and minority shareholders
  • Fraud
  • Failure to pay dividends
  • Wrongful transfer of stock

Resolving Shareholder Disputes

Shareholders are a significant part of any business and can contribute significantly to any future success. As such, any minor or major disagreement between a business and its stockholders or between the stockholders themselves can have wide-ranging repercussions.

We represent both shareholders and businesses in matters involving:

  • Breaches of fiduciary duty
  • Conflicts between majority and minority shareholders
  • Minority shareholder oppression
  • Fraud
  • Failure to pay dividends
  • Wrongful transfer of stock

We also represent minority shareholders who may be silenced or squeezed out by majority shareholders. We tackle claims of share dilution and hiding documentation head on.

The Importance Of Starting Early

Our lawyers stress the significant value of being brought in to solve disputes early, in order to prevent escalations and carve an easier path to a resolution.

As many shareholder agreements have specific provisions for dispute resolutions, we have the significant experience necessary to find creative and lasting solutions, no matter the nature of the dispute.
