Gretchen Jankowski, shareholder and co-chair of the firm's Litigation section, was a presenter for PBI's Business Owners Dispute webcast, Planning and Strategizing for the Business Divorce.
All business relationships eventually end, but business partners often fail to plan adequately for the inevitable separation. When entering into a business owner relationship, the business partners would be well-advised to obtain counsel from a business lawyer on both managing the business relationship and planning for a future separation. But even with good initial counseling, the business partner will require the services of a transactional lawyer and/or commercial litigator at the time of the business divorce.
The presenters advised clients entering into business owner relationships or seeking to separate from their business partners. The presentation also focused ethical issues for the lawyer representing one or more business owners or the company in entering into the business relationship or the business divorce.
