One of the biggest threats to a closely held company is the risk of dispute among the members of its ownership group. The members may disagree about a major company transaction, the strategic direction of the company, distribution practices, or simply develop ruinous inter-personal issues.  In closely held companies that are held by a single family, disputes are particularly personal, often arising when members of a junior generation succeed to the interests and leadership role of a senior generation.  Unless these disputes are carefully channeled into dispute resolution mechanisms, the stability and financial success of the company is threatened.  This program will provide you with a guide to the sources of disputes in closely held companies and mechanisms for resolution, with an emphasis using buy/sell agreements to resolve disputes.  

Common sources of disputes and deadlocks in closely-held companies
Counseling clients about the real possibility of deadlocks
Conflicts over strategic transactions, distributions, or inter-personal relations
Planning and drafting mechanisms to resolve disputes
Practical use of buy/sell agreements to liquidate interest of dissenting member
Major elements of buy/sell agreements – triggering events, valuation, funding buyout – and they may provoke dispute
