About the Committee on Business Divorce and Complex Ownership Disputes

Beginning in May, the committee will address transactional and litigation issues that arise when the relationships among owners of business organizations, large and small, break down to the point where a business separation and/or a lawsuit are the only practical solutions. Squeeze-outs, freeze-outs, shareholder rights, oppression, deadlock, dissolution, court-ordered buyouts and other alternative remedies, business valuations, and contests for corporate control are just some of the topics that will be regularly addressed.

The committee’s focus is “cross-disciplinary” with content, speakers and discussions of interest for both business lawyers and trial attorneys. The committee will study practice under the various business entity statutes (primarily Illinois and Delaware), keep members informed of case law and statutory developments, and make recommendations for changes in the law, including those related to civil practice.
