Business disputes can be serious. We’ll work hard to protect your interests.


Businesses often face challenges from shareholders and business partners. These disagreements may stem from pay structures, breach of fiduciary duties, or even when or how to dissolve a business. When these types of disagreements occur, you need the skilled counsel of the law firm of Solomon Richman, P.C. We have more than 50 years of experience handling all types of disputes for small, closely held businesses and we know how serious and detrimental these disputes can be.



The first steps to keeping your legal costs down when you are in a dispute with partners or shareholders are to try mediation or arbitration. Oftentimes, disagreements can be settled without the additional time or money necessary to settle disputes in court. However, when these methods fail, Solomon Richman, P.C. is prepared to go to court to work out the differences.



In New York, small, closely held corporations often face shareholder disputes over the value the company places on shares. We have dealt with appraisal proceedings in which a shareholder wishes to dissolve the company and the company wishes to remain viable. There are other instance where we can help, like when an owner of the corporation is in a property dispute during a divorce and parts of their assets are the corporation itself. At Solomon Richman, P.C. we will work closely with you to ensure that your rights are protected and if necessary, help negotiate a buyout of a less-than-cooperative shareholder or part owner of a business.



One of the many challenges that often face partnerships occurs when one partner wishes to remove his share of the corporation and move on. Unfortunately, these types of splits can be as complicated as a marital separation and often as contentious. When arbitration or mediation fails, we are fully prepared to represent the best interests of the party we represent in court to ensure the best possible outcome. Solomon Richman, P.C. has been helping resolve these types of disputes for more than 50 years and we understand the difficulties and financial burdens these types of proceedings can have on a business. We are here to help resolve these differences by offering cost-effective legal representation.
