Wind Up, Dissolution and Succession of a Business

Business entities do not exist always exist in perpetuity. Changed circumstances may require a business to "wind up" its operations and dissolve, or, in other instances, a business may be merged with or acquired by another entity.

These issues of wind up, dissolution and succession can raise a host of legal issues that result in litigation. It is not uncommon for disputes to arise among shareholders, partners or members over the valuation and distribution of the entity's assets. Disputes also may arise over the business's or its owners' responsibility for the outstanding liabilities of the business at the time of wind up, dissolution or succession.

Resolution of these issues can be high stakes and legally complex and can vary depending on whether the business is a corporation, partnership or limited liability company.
