Despite best efforts there are times when business goes bad. We have experience in litigating shareholder’s rights both from the position of minority shareholders and majorities. Starting with a consultation we can give advice you about your rights and bring your case into court. Contact us today to request a consultation.
Have you failed to file an annual corporate or partnership report? You may not realize it but, in certain circumstances failure to file an annual report can result in liability to the directors, officers, or shareholders of a business entity. This is exactly what you want to avoid when you form a corporation or partnership!
Another problem arises when your business entity is Involuntarily Dissolved. When this happens you may not only be liable to your business’ creditors, you could be violating the law if you continue to do business under the business name.
We would like to meet with you to give you the legal help you need so that you can focus on doing what you do best. Contact us today for a consultation!
Is it time to get out? Like all things, businesses come to an end. But, when you have a partnership or corporation – business entities – there are legal formalities that must be attended to in order to dissolve the business without incurring personal liability. For example, creditors must be paid prior to paying out partners and shareholders. The Secretary of State requires the filing of Articles of Dissolution. Additionally, the Illinois Department of Employment Security requires notice of termination of doing business.
Not-For-Profit Corporations must be properly dissolved as well. We have experience in helping religious not-for-profits (specifically, local churches) shut the doors.
