Aronberg Goldgehn attorneys Ben Haskin and John Sciaccotta will present “Books & Records Request Strategies Under Sect 7.75 of the Illinois Business Corporation Act & Illinois LLC Act and Litigation Issues” at the Nov. 12, 2018, meeting of the Chicago Bar Association’s Business Divorce & Complex Ownership Dispute Committee.

The Committee meeting will take place from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at CBA Headquarters, 321 South Plymouth Court.

The Business Divorce and Complex Ownership Disputes Committee was created this past summer to address the legal issues that arise when the relationships among owners of business organizations break down to the point where a business separation or a lawsuit are the only practical solutions.

The Committee meetings cover topics such as squeeze-outs, freeze-outs, shareholder rights, oppression, deadlock, dissolution, court-ordered buyouts, alternative remedies, business valuations, and other contests for corporate control.

John Sciaccotta is Co-Founder and Vice Chair of the Business Divorce and Complex Ownership Disputes Committee; Aronberg Goldgehn Co-Managing Member Jerry Holisky is also a Co-Founder of the Committee and its Chair.

The Committee held its first meeting Sept. 17, 2018.
